Amcor Flexibles has announced the addition of a new press at its plant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, allowing flexographic printing, gravure coating and slitting to occur in a single pass.

The additional capacity from the MP4 press and slitter will support demand for high-quality coated, health care-grade paper and film.

“We’re thrilled for this opportunity to continue to support the needs of our medical customers with the best coated products to meet the demanding needs of medical device manufacturers,” says Chris Cosgrove, vice president and general manager at Amcor Flexibles Americas. “With this expansion, our Milwaukee facility is perfectly poised to deliver the value and service that our customers have come to expect.”

The new equipment is slated for delivery in early 2017. The simplicity of the press will also allow Amcor to offer better performance at a competitive cost to their customers in the coming year.

“Our team is working tirelessly to ensure a smooth transition for our customers,” says Brad Nasgovitz, general manager at Amcor Flexibles. “We understand the regulatory requirements and rigor required for any changes within this landscape and take our responsibilities very seriously. Through partnership with our customers, we’re ensuring this new equipment will meet all their requirements with the added benefit of providing additional supply redundancy.”
