Soma held its traditional autumn Open House on October 15-19 and on November 5 - 9 where participants at both events had the opportunity of seeing printing and packaging converting technology at is best and where three turned out to be the magic number. A high performance, ten colour Imperia flexographic printing press was demonstrated in combination with the Lamiflex E solvent-free laminator and three of our slitter rewinding machines that included the Pluto III, Venus II and Venus III models.

Three also symbolised the latest technologies in pre-print where the Imperia was shown running a Nestle print using KODAK 70 l/cm printing plates with DIGICAP and TWINLOCK sleeve technology and the latest DuPont Cyrel Round process. In addition, visitors were also able to see prints running with the Blue One Premium, directly engraved sleeve technology with extra compressible layer.

The Open House was attended by visitors from several different companies who were able to network with our experts to discuss current trends in packaging technology and learn about the latest development in flexographic printing from Soma. An international attendance saw visitors from Europe, North America and Asia.

Visitors were welcomed and hosted by our team of professionals in the field of printing and converting packaging materials and were able to see flawless machine demonstrations. The Open House culminated in the sale of a Venus III slitter rewinder and two Bulldog automatic die cutting machines to a customer in Turkey.
