The TRESU Group, a leading specialist for flexible, customized solutions for flexo printing machines based in Kolding, Denmark, introduces iTape, an adhesive tape specially formulated to optimise stability, print quality and efficiency when used with sleeves on flexo coaters that are integrated with digital folding carton printing lines.

Developed in partnership with Lohmann Bonding Engineers, based in Neuwied, Germany, iTape is adhesive on both sides, and features a filmic carrier that enables superior dot gain control and precise control of varnish transfer at maximum speeds of 4600 sheets per hour. The tape also enables fast frictionless demounting without the chance of damage to the sleeve. 

Kim Krintel, vice-president of TRESU’s Digital Solutions division that specialises in coating solutions for digital folding carton printing lines, comments: “iTape gives folding carton printers an adhesive that is fine-tuned to deliver stability at high speeds, and save consumable costs in situations where short production runs and repeat orders are frequent requirements. With the introduction, TRESU gives printers who integrate a flexo coating operation into their production line a single, complete source of perfectly compatible equipment, varnish media and consumable products that have been rigorously tested for smooth and efficient operation.”
