Soma, co-founder of the Flexo Xperience Center (The FXC), in Atlanta, G.A., installs a new Soma Optima2 flexo press at the facility.
The FXC provides hands-on experience with the latest technologies through collaboration, research, experimentation, and learning. Its objective is to help everyone achieve excellence in the flexo process.
Visitors to the FXC can learn how novices can master job changeovers with the Soma Changeover Wizard, a component of new SOMA Optima2 flexo presses, and recipient of a 2022 FTA Technical Innovation Award. The SOMA Changeover Wizard flexo press user interface guides press operators throughout all the steps involved changing from one job to the next.
Additionally, Kamil Sawicki, an experienced flexo press operator, has arrived at the FXC as the resident high-speed print specialist. Sawicki will manage all activities at the press room, and is also part of the broader Soma support team for the U.S. market.
“Kamil is a terrific addition to the FXC staff. He understands the entire range of Soma Optima printing presses, and has extensive work experience operating flexo printing presses in daily high-pressure environments,” comments Garrett Taylor, Soma North America Sales Director. “While test runs are certainly part of the agenda, collaboration with FXC partners, educating visitors about flexographic printing, and training novice and experienced press operators are vital parts of his role. Kamil will also be providing Soma resources for research projects so we can move flexo forward.”
