“Drupa has been a great success for us“, Heinz W. Lorig, Managing Partner of Polywest, points out. „We could show that we–as a medium-sized company–can keep up with the high level the big groups represent“, Heinz W. Lorig adds. While other competitors were joining big groups in the past, Polywest is still retaining its independence.

One system – Individual solutions

As one of the most successful international manufacturers of plate mounting sleeves and adapter technology for flexography, Polywest’s focus is now on system solutions. Many years of experience and the continuous developments in the flexo printing industry have shown that there is always more than one way to reach a goal. Today system solutions are requested with flexible components which are easy to handle and in addition reduce costs and set-up times. Polywest offers a system consisting of adapters for bridging big printing circumferences and sleeves for plate mounting as well as direct-engraving sleeves. The product range is a complementary range characterized by its enormous flexibility. It is compatible with nearly every sleeve system available.

Polywest: Internationally well positioned.

The wide range was particularly appreciated by international drupa visitors from Asia, Latin America and the North American countries. They were especially interested in adapter technology and direct-engraving sleeves. The direct-engraving sleeves are manufactured with high-quality materials and convince through their excellent printing characteristics and their rapid operational readiness after the laser engraving process. The print layout is engraved directly into the sleeve surface with laser. Time consuming exposure, washing and drying processes which are needed when printing with photopolymer forms are eliminated.

Polywest rouses international interests.

At this year’s drupa many new and interesting business contacts could be established. Compared to drupa 2004 the number of visitors has lightly decreased, but most of the visitors were better informed, so that the conversations were on a high level and very effective. The final work is currently made at Polywest and the closing results are getting summarized.
