Outstanding print quality and reliability

In addition to the outstanding print quality, Packaging World particularly appreciates the reliability of the MIRAFLEX.

"And should a malfunction occur unexpectedly, Windmöller & Hölscher is always comprehensively available for trouble shooting via the information and diagnostics center (IDZ) and the direct 24/7 hotline with remote service or also via the worldwide sales and service network. This is not only a decisive advantage for us as printers, but also creates maximum delivery reliability for our customers," continues Dean Gianni.

The award-winning print products and the consistently positive long-term experience of Packaging World in South Africa are further proof of the outstanding position of MIRAFLEX in the global CI flexographic printing market. Today, far more than 700 MIRAFLEX machines are in production in all regions of the world. "The experience gained from MIRAFLEX installations and from nearly 70 years of CI press development.
