QuadTech Installs Autotron 2600 for Apple Converting

Assists Another Packaging Customer

Sussex, WI--November 28, 2007--QuadTech, Inc. today announced another successful installation of the Autotron Packaging 2600 Register Guidance System with Apple Converting, a flexible packaging leader that offers solutions to the food and beverage, cosmetic, confectionary, consumer products, pharmaceutical and medical device industries.

Apple Converting’s customers rely on the company to provide continued process improvement and quality customer service. To meet its commitment, the company recently installed a new Cerutti 9 Color 47" Gravure Press at its 45,000 square foot cGMP facility in Oneonta, New York. This installation allowed Apple Converting to deliver on its promise to provide superior printing and coating at higher speeds.

Apple Converting wanted the further ability to track and optimize every key stage in the printing process, minimizing waste and ensuring the best possible quality. To achieve that goal, Apple Converting enhanced its new press with the QuadTech Autotron Packaging 2600 Register Guidance System.

The Autotron 2600 is designed for maximum quality, maximum flexibility, and maximum waste reduction. It incorporates a host of advanced features for shaftless and conventionally driven presses alike – features that help ensure unsurpassed control and quality from first printing unit to finished product or rewinder.

By installing the Autotron 2600 on its new Cerutti 9 Color 47" Gravure Press, Apple Converting was able to make short work of once-difficult jobs such as printing pale colors and low-contrast varnishes on a challenging substrate. The company was able to further ensure accurate, single-mark register throughout the printing process.

“Apple Converting’s services are synonymous with quality and commitment,” said Karl Fritchen, President of QuadTech. “We are pleased to equip the company with the highest-performing automated control systems in the packaging industry and look forward to working with them in the future.”
