Partnership for sustained success

UTECO believes that DBC Packaging’s consistent successes at the FTASA Print Excellence Awards can be ascribed to a highly experienced production team that prioritises quality results alongside maximised efficiencies.

‘DBC has been a loyal Uteco customer for 12 years and has invested in three flexo CI presses – the Onyx 808 in 2011, Onyx 810 in 2015 and Onyx 808 in 2017 – because they are designed to offer the most efficient performance for all print run lengths across a wide range of substrates, including PP, BOPP, LLDPE and PET for food packaging film applications,’ reports Anan Hiyasat, UTECO Group Middle East and Africa director.

Anan adds that the Onyx is quick to set up thanks to its technical innovations and automation features, which also ensure process consistency on repeat jobs over time, minimal waste, and ease of use. ‘It is ideal for converters, such as DBC, looking to add a powerful and reliable press to their printing arsenal.’

The Onyx machine is available in six, eight and ten colours to provide consistent and repeatable print quality with solvent- and water-based inks printing on a wide range of substrate types and thicknesses. Furthermore, Anan notes, it has a compact and ergonomic modular design, which makes installation and configuration very simple.

From the moment the machine arrives, it can be installed and ready to print in less than four weeks. Its compact size will save valuable space and its intelligent ergonomic design will ensure easy, intuitive and fast operation for the operator,’ he notes.’  

‘Onyx is our most sold and robust flexo CI press with more than 600 units installed worldwide” says UTECO’s chief of strategy and marketing officer, Cristiano Cividini. 

‘Onyx is well recognised as a top-tier flexo CI press from our customers and we are really proud of the relationship with DBC and of the outstanding results obtained at the FTASA Awards. Our customers are always in first place and we are delighted to contribute to their growth and business success.’

Cristiano adds that the Onyx’s long-lasting history continues with very exciting news for all UTECO’s customers since the Onyx Go was released to the market in October 2022 and is available at UTECO’s headquarters in Italy for demonstration and testing.

Moreover, the company will host an Open House Event at the UTECO ConverDrome on May 11t and 12. All visitors will be able to see and touch the latest innovations and technologies of the Onyx Go Machine.
