3C!: Printed foil lidding film for blisters and more
3C! Packaging’s foil lidding for blisters, and printed foils with extruded plastics for sachets, feature enhanced printing.
Produced by integrating the 13-in FB-3300, 6-color Servo Flexo Press from Nilpeter, 3C! Packaging is running a broad range of multi-substrate packaging materials while specializing in thin-gauged films. Servo control on press and finishing equipment is critical to maintain extremely tight registration and control tension during production. Chill Rollers at each color station enables 3C! to regulate temperature of flexible material, minimizing film stretch as well as diminishing pre-activation of the Heat Seal Coatings during the printing process. Accordingly, 3C! employed a Servo CEI rewinder into their finishing process to further aid with web control during final rewind of the finished rolls.
Maintaining the highest quality possible, a commitment 3C! has upheld for 35 years, was priority when integrating this new product line. The integration of the closed loop Vision Systems emphasizes 3C!s attention to detail, which has always been a staple in 3C!’s quality and success for 31 years. With full web Vision Systems on the presses any compromised copy will be detected while simultaneously flags material defects.
