After the welcoming of Mr. Günter Korbacher, managing director of WEILBURGER Graphics, a common tour through the company and a presentation of the extended laboratory and stock wing as well as a common lunch snack, the presentation and discussion round started regarding the following topics:

• Requirements of a brand company / Jürgen Kleinhans, BACARDI GmbH

• Types of engraving at anilox rollers / Georg Selders, Apex Deutschland GmbH

• Adjustment to the exposure technique of printing plates / Heiko Döring, D. & W. Flexo-Manufaktur GmbH & Co. KG

• Machine technical features / André Göpfert, Göpfert Maschinen GmbH

• High printing speed, high ink strength, optimized transfer and use of SENOFLEX FP NDC in the food packaging / Klaus Fleischmann, WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH

During the following discussion, the advantages of the use in the food industry of the SENOFLEX ink series of WEILBURGER Graphics have also been especially worked out. Here, the latest ISEGA certificate of compliance of the SENOFLEX WB PROCESS INK FP NDC 15-3573 and SENOFLEX WB MIXING INK FP NDC 15-3573 is available by the registration number 33996 U12, in which the legal compliance of this ink series onto the exterior side of packaging of corrugated boards for dry, fatty und moist foods as well as for the external and internal printing of folding boxes for dry and non-fatty foods, for example sweets, especially chocolate and filled chocolates or also cereals is confirmed.

On this, Mr. Günter Korbacher, managing director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH: “The high quality of our SENOFLEX product series of inks and varnishes has been again and again confirmed by our customers for years. The available ISEGA certificate is now giving us and our customers the security to use this series also unhesitatingly in a wide area of the food packaging.” Günter Korbacher added: “Our annual SENOFLEX workshop serves both, our customers and ourselves, to optimize workflows and product lines and to adjust to the current and also future needs of the market. We are very glad that these workshops are accepted and visited and that the participants demonstrably put the learned things into practice.”

Also this workshop showed again: in order to meet all the requirements of the common customers, an intense dialog with the brand companies and the decision makers as well as a running network among the suppliers is desirable.

During the get-together and dinner in the evening in the easy atmosphere at the “Alten Küche” at the old town festival in Nuremberg, the participants and experts were able to intensify the topics once again.

The following day, many guests took the opportunity to visit the nearby FachPack.
