Ampac Kirchberg Receives Flexo Print Nomination from German DFTA Awards
Kirchberg, Switzerland (November 10, 2011)—Ampac, a global leader in creative flexible packaging, has been nominated by the DFTA – the German association for flexographic printing – for two awards in the liquid and food categories.
Ampac was nominated for two flexible pouch designs produced at their Switzerland plant location. Each design, printed on a flexographic press, was judged by the awards committee and was voted among the top three designs from over 300 total designs submitted through the DFTA (Deutschsprachige-Flexodruck-Fachgruppe) – the German Flexographic Association.
The first design in the “liquids” category is for “Weight Watcher’s Italian Dressing” which is flexographic rollstock. The second design is a 3-layer stand-up retort pouch printed for “Suppe von Lisa” in the “food” category. The flexographic printing process encompasses size variability, a high amount of ink transfer, and suitability for different color systems. The DFTA awards reported that the level of quality of the submitted designs was excellent, making it difficult to choose an overall award for each category.
Ampac is excited to have been awarded two nominations. Ampac’s Hansruedi Häberli, states, “We are proud to have been nominated for the DFTA awards, particularly among all of the submitted designs. Ampac’s flexo printing is of the highest quality and demonstrates our advanced print capabilities.”
