DFTA Award

13. September 2012

Bischof + Klein has been honoured with the DFTA-Award 2012 for its outstanding printing results in the field of flexible packaging for pet food.

Helmut Wenzl, head of the printing department in Konzell, and Tobias Meyer, head of repro at B+K Lengerich, accepted the prize at the specialist flexographic printing congress ProFlex in Stuttgart. The jury's comment on the award-winning printing motif: "Flexographic printing is able to reproduce images more beautifully than they occur in nature - and this is the proof. Uniformly high contrast and the especially good lie of the printing ink characterise this winner and are advertisements for flexographic printing." Bischof + Klein produces the prize-winning packaging for its customer Hill’s Pet Nutrition, a manufacturer of premium pet food.

The jury was required to assess 276 submissions in eleven categories in this prestigious competition. Bischof + Klein asserted itself against other high-quality nominations from the field of high-definition flexographic printing. In addition to being placed first in the sector of packaging for pet food, Bischof + Klein also came second in the hygiene packaging segment. "We are delighted at our spontaneous success on the new HD flexographic printing market", stated Tobias Meyer. At B+K Konzell/Bavaria, Bischof + Klein uses an HD system with inline UV exposure to generate this high flexographic printing quality. With its in-house repro and printing plate production, Bischof + Klein offers the ideal prerequisites for this new technology. Perfect interaction between the repro and printing departments with the latest printing presses and accordingly trained employees is crucial in HD flexographic printing.
