10-colour flexographic press for Chequer

Wednesday, 16 February, 2005


Chequer Packaging Limited has invested NZ$5 million in a state-of-the-art printing press at its production site in East Tamaki, Auckland.

The new machine is a 10-colour flexographic press and is the first of its type installed in New Zealand or Australia. Key features of the press include online barcode scanning, print fault detection and extend-ed drying tunnel to elim-inate retained solvents.

The press is the first in a series of investments planned to underpin the group's growth strategies over the next few years, and will increase employment opportunities at the East Tamaki plant. Chequer Packaging employs 300 people at its flexible packaging sites in Auckland and Christchurch.
