Stage exciting innovation

Your mini guide to printing innovation  

Technology is transforming the manufacturing process – unlocking opportunities, solving old problems, creating new challenges (and sometimes customer expectations of technology are running ahead of reality).
Sustainability, quality, color, new formats, personalization, lower cost… In the packaging industry, the list of demands goes on and on. In times of increasing skills shortage on the shop floor, and ceaseless pressure from the top floor, innovation is the answer – it is how we can build on our printing expertise, and embrace the exciting future in front of us.  

Exciting Innovation: how it happens

The flexo print process we all know and love is much the same as it always was. But change is happening. The way we think about it, innovation is a constant process of improvement and incremental gains – sharing our know-how with yours, bringing our adhesive technology and development capabilities to the party, and finding new ways to solve your challenges, specifically in the area of plate mounting.  

There are more than 100 tesa technical experts in the field around the world. Working in close consultation with customers, we develop plate mounting solutions that are tailored to the unique needs of each operation. And everything we learn together feeds into our ongoing program of product and technology development.
