TRESU DigitalSolutions, a provider of flexo coating systems for digital printing lines, and Apex International, a manufacturer of precision anilox coating and ink technology for packaging and label converting, have formed a global research, development and training partnership. 

Through the partnership, the two companies, which will share expertise and facilities, will aim to improve the performance of coating technology for sheet-fed digital printing applications and to enhance customer service for users of TRESU’s iCoat Single and Twin sheet-fed coaters.

TRESU’s iCoat coating systems integrate with sheet-fed digital folding carton and commercial printing presses. They are used to apply full, spot or line varnish coatings that provide added protection or aesthetic qualities to the underlying graphics. 

“Apex International’s wealth of expertise in water-based and UV-curable coating transfer technology perfectly complements the digital folding carton workflow," says Kim Krintel, vice president of TRESU DigitalSolutions. "By combining resources, competences and knowledge, we are well-placed to drive further process optimization and enable TRESU iCoat users to enjoy improvements in efficiency, quality and support.”
