Belgium-based Athena Graphics NV and Glunz & Jensen A/S have entered into a partnership covering development and delivery of fully automated processing systems for flexographic printing plates used in Athena’s prepress operation.
The cooperation will include In-line integration of the newly introduced fully automatic Glunz & Jensen FlexPro processor into the Glunz & Jensen FlexLine system, as well as process data integration into Athena’s workflow. At the final stage of the project, Athena will have a fully integrated platemaking workflow, from plate imaging to plate cutting. With the integrated FlexLine system, Athena stand to benefit from higher productivity, reduced waste and more consistent plate quality.
