UFlex, India’s largest multinational flexible packaging and solutions company, and their associate company Afflatus, have been a Heaford customer since 1991 when they purchased their first SC model gravure proof press. They now have numerous Heaford gravure proofers & Flexo proofers across multiple UFlex sites in India, Kenya and Egypt and @Afflatus have 5 Heaford proofers in India too.
Matthew Royle, Heaford Applications Engineer, recently visited UFlex to calibrate one of their flexo proof presses which had been relocated from their Jammu site to Ahmedabad. Matthew also spent time with the team during his visit training the team to get the best out of their machines.
The Heaford gravure & flexo proofing presses have been the machines of choice for the world’s leading gravure cylinder & flexo plate manufacturers and converters for the past 40 years.
These machines produce a ‘press like’ proof using the same substrates, inks, anilox and plates as the press without sacrificing expensive press downtime with customers assured of reliable and consistent results
With over 600 proofers currently in service around the globe, some of which are over 35 years’ old, Heaford customers continue to benefit from repeatable quality proofs without compromise, year after year.
