FachPack 2018 to feature highlights from digital print and multi-sensory enhancement
The Schur Flexibles Group, a leading supplier of flexible packaging solutions, has specialists for all forms of film and packaging print due to its Centres of Excellence concept. Subsidiaries throughout Europe provide printing know-how at the highest level – from rotogravure to flexography and offset printing. Due to the acquisition of French printing specialist UNI Packaging headquartered in Averdoingt, France, digital printing has now been added to the mix. This enables Schur Flexibles to offer bespoke print runs from very small to extremely large, and to deliver in record time. Additionally, the Group offers numerous print enhancement options such as tactile lacquers. The company’s stand at FachPack 2018 gives a comprehensive overview of their wide range of multi-sensory solutions.
UNI Packaging complements range of services
Digital print expert UNI Packaging recently became part of the Schur Flexibles family and expanded the Group’s services to cover an impressive range of innovative options. UNI Packaging provides the latest, market-leading digital print technology, guaranteeing prints of the highest quality. Rapid response and small print runs are just some of the advantages provided by the new Schur Flexibles member. Other benefits include variable data printing to deliver uniquely customised prints or pack traceability, as well as overprint solutions that enable everything from complex creative branding to simple artwork alterations. UNI also offers mirror-ink technology for high-quality metallic solutions that do away with the need for aluminium film. The sophisticated metallic finish creates striking packaging that, in comparison to aluminium solutions, is lighter in weight and thereby has less environmental impact.
Packaging for the senses – visual and sensory effects
Member companies of the Schur Flexibles Group, located throughout Europe, are specialised in a large variety of packaging enhancements. These include mat or glossy lacquers, textured lacquers that combine attractive optics with tactile effects, e.g. the unique velvety SoftTouch or the rougher SandTouch, sculpted surface textures as well as PaperTouch to highlight paper sensations. The way packaging feels matters to consumers. A successful point-of-sale product presentation provides a multi-sensory experience to attract the consumers’ attention – eye-catching design is heightened by tactile properties for maximum effect.
