Italy-based repro house Nu-Maber updates its flexo plate processing line with latest technology from Asahi Photoproducts, including Asahi AWP-DEW water-washable CleanPrint plates and an Asahi AWP-4260 PLF automated inline processor with processing, drying and light finishing.

This new configuration is Industry 4.0 compatible with remote maintenance and support capability. Asahi AWP-DEW water-washable plates are suitable for flexible packaging and labels and are designed to move away from VOC-washout, solvent-based plate processing.

“Nu-Maber and Asahi have been partnering for more than 30 years,” said Livio Simionato, Nu-Maber’s CEO. “We were the first in Italy to adopt in Asahi’s AWP water-wash technology, and our customers have appreciated the quality, productivity and eco-footprint of these plates. With the new line we installed, we have increased our throughput and reduced intermediate steps and operator intervention. With the AWP-DEW plates, we are bringing new benefits to our customers across the board, in the narrow-, medium- and wide-web flexo markets. We are excited about the continued innovations we see from Asahi and look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come.”
