Baldwin Technology experts to introduce “Diamond Standard” for corrugated production efficiency at FEFCO Technical Seminar Spotlight
St. Louis (October 9, 2023) – Baldwin, the leading global manufacturer and supplier of innovative process-automation equipment, parts, service and consumables for the printing, packaging, textile, plastic film extrusion and corrugated industries, will be demonstrating its corrugated-industry leadership by shing a “Diamond Standard” on cleaning and drying revelations at the forthcoming FEFCO Technical Seminar (Centre de Congres de Lyon, Lyon, France, October 25-27, 2023).
During a highly-coveted October 25 Spotlight Spot at FEFCO, Baldwin will present a provocative technical presentation entitled “Fool’s Gold. Why All That’s Gold Doesn’t Glitter. – Adopt the ‘Diamond Standard’ for Efficiency,” led by Dennis Behnisch, Baldwin’s Germany-based Engineering and R&D Leader.
FEFCO is the European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers, the non-profit organization representing the interests of the industry across Europe and addressing a wide range of issues, from technical topics to economic considerations.
Baldwin’s presentation will be centered on its how the users of its combination of Diamond IR and FlexoCleanerBrush can glean value from these technology advancements
Baldwin’s recently-introduced Ultra Wide FlexoCleanerBrush has garnered wide market favor and adoption. It is a fully automated flexo plate-cleaning system that can be up to 126 inches (3.2 meters) wide. As Baldwin’s flagship solution to enhance print quality and improve worker safety in corrugated printing, the system automatically removes dust and contamination from the plate in seconds during production, without stopping the press.
It also performs full end-of-job plate cleaning and drying in under four minutes, enabling increased capacity, improving operator injury and saving thousands of dollars per year in consumables spending.
Baldwin will also explore its FlexoDry Infrared (IR) drying system. Developed to maximize press throughput, boost production speeds and reduce energy consumption, the FlexoDry system utilizes Diamond-IR lamps to focus powerful IR radiation. These lamps use a unique ceramic reflector that directs all light to the substrate, resulting in 30% energy savings when compared with other IR lamps.
In addition to these technological advancements, to further support the overall corrugated industry Baldwin has launched www.printenomics.com. A corrugated-specific Ebook featuring a dedicated resource center, it houses discrete industry organization and trade publication links and a host of podcasts and instructional guides to maximize profitability in the corrugated space
In consultation with its customers, industry experts, and in-house engineering team – along with a review of the latest reporting – “From Beast to Beauty” explores four primary trends that will impact box-making facilities: E-commerce, Brand Protection, Sustainability, and Labor Challenges.
“With the incredible explosion in demand for corrugated materials, it’s no secret that box plants are being squeezed to get more capacity and quality out of their existing equipment. When you add to this the scarcity of qualified operators to run production, the entire industry requires smart automation that enables efficiency,” said Behnisch. “Here at Baldwin ,we possess a long-held knowledge of the corrugated industry – we have pioneered technologies that our customers demand, and that is what the audience can learn more about at our spotlight talk.”
