Leading independent flexible packaging company Irish Flexible Packaging has upgraded their 8 colour flexopress to Absolute woven carbon fibre chambers as part of a continuing capital investment programme.

IFP, based in County Wicklow Ireland, specialises in innovative packaging for the Dairy and Bakery sector, where the ability to consistently produce high-quality flexo print is a prerequisite for suppliers.

Gary Hale, Operations Manager of IFP commented “We considered several suppliers before deciding on Absolute. Even then we only purchased one unit initially in order to validate and quantify the claims made. However, after only one month we could already see the improvements that the Absolute system was producing when compared to the original Aluminium chambers.

Now that we have installed all 8 units, I can categorically state that Absolutes’ Chambers will pay for themselves within 12 months of purchase due to the savings from ink leakage and extended doctor blade life.”

Antony Whiteside of Absolute confirmed “Even though we have supplied over 5,000 chambers worldwide there are still many companies who have yet to use Absolute blade systems.

IFP was cautious and chose to buy one unit initially. We were perfectly happy with this plan as we have complete control of the procedure. From an initial visit by our Design Specialist through to installation by our Service and Support Engineers, we were confident that the performance of our chambers would ensure that we produced a result IFP would be satisfied with. Once this was proven, Gary was confident to proceed with upgrading the remaining units. A great result for everybody involved.”
