Van Dam Machine would like to congratulate our partners, Footprint for winning the 2022 FTA Sustainability Excellence Award for Indirect Flexography on Molded Fiber Cup.

The FDoR® FlexoCon technology guarantees a sharply printed image on the top, middle and bottom of a round cup. Van Dam collaborated with Apex to develop conical anilox rollers, which mirror the conical angle of a cup resulting in clear print challenging high slur percentage images or soft surface products like molded fiber cups. We partnered with two ink manufacturers Sun Chemicals and Zeller+Gmelin to develop the ink for this unique technology.
