WILMINGTON, Del., June 2, 2016 – DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) shared its business strategy and vision today during a news conference at the drupa 2016 trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany. 

“The vision of DuPont Advanced Printing is to be the market leader and trusted innovation partner, enabling our customers to grow and outperform competition in the packaging and printing markets,” said Colleen Pritchett, global business director, DuPont Advanced Printing. “Customers no longer need to make trade-offs between quality and productivity.  With DuPont you can have it all – high quality, high speed and high performance.”

Pritchett addressed the media, as well as key industry partners, to outline DuPont’s unique ability to meet the growing needs of the package printing industry.  Major focus areas include answering the need for faster cycling times and printing speeds, defeating counterfeiters and offering sustainable solutions that don’t compromise on quality.

Joining Pritchett at the news conference were Andy Kannurpatti, global marketing manager, flexography, DuPont Advanced Printing; and Jan Scharfenberg, technical manager, Europe, Middle East & Africa, DuPont Advanced Printing, to discuss DuPont’s newest innovations and recent product launches including:

  • DuPont™ Cyrel® EASY flexographic printing plates which simplify the printing process with built-in flat-top dots – resulting in increased productivity and consistency.
  • Cyrel® FAST 2000 TD, a next generation processor, featuring DuPont™ FAST® technology. Compared to the traditional plate processing, FAST® technology is solvent-free and dramatically improves productivity because it eliminates the time-consuming drying steps.
  • DuPont™ Artistri® inks that deliver print performance and productivity for consumer, commercial, office inkjet and textile printing applications.
  • DuPont™ Izon® products that provide the most secure, 3D visual anti-counterfeiting technology available.
