In the context of investing in a new 10-colour gravure press from Worldly, packaging producer Shrinkflex (Thailand) Co., Ltd. decided to equip it with a high-end register control system and high-performance inspection technology from BST eltromat International GmbH (Bielefeld, Germany). Both for Shrinkflex and Worldly, their cooperation with the German manufacturer was a premiere – and the start of a new partnership at the same time.

"We can only proactively cover the constantly growing quality demands of our clients if we fully exploit today's technical capabilities in quality assurance as well," says Michael Tsoi, founder and owner of Shrinkflex. "That's why we asked Worldly to equip our new WRP-MV gravure press with the latest technology from BST eltromat for register control, video web inspection and 100% print inspection." That was a premiere for Shrinkflex – after all, the company had previously used quality assurance systems from other manufacturers.

Shrinkflex took PackPrint 2013 in Bangkok as an opportunity to carefully examine the offers of the various suppliers of corresponding technologies. "The decision came out clearly in favor of 100% inspection with iPQ-Check and video web inspection with iPQ-View from BST eltromat," reports Michael Tsoi. The same applied to regi_star 20, once the responsible decision-makers at Shrinkflex had seen a presentation of this register control system's capabilities – achieving rapid registration and maintaining register during production with a high degree of automation.
