"PART Awards 2013"
19th of June, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, at the official reception of the exhibition RosUpack 2013, there was "PART Awards 2013", where JV "Uniflex" Ltd, was awarded the "Producer of the Year"!
PART Awards (Packaging: Art, Research, Technology) - the first open Eurasian award in design and production of packaging and the only professional event in Russia, giving full and comprehensive understanding of the industry, its best players, and the most striking trends. An outstanding feature of expert approach of PART Awards is in the interaction of several jury teams, which allows to evaluate the work in each category, taking into account its specific criteria. PART Awards received more than 70 models from 40 packaging manufacturers. Professional jury selected the winners in the nominations of the competition. To participate in competition the packaging for the product Har Gow Azio was provided, made for our partner JV "Santa BremorВ» Ltd.
The customer has required to produce a packaging with flexographic printing, however the layout had originally been designed for rotogravure printing. As a result for this project, we used a combination of tehnologies: HD flexo with resolution of 174 lpi + Multicolor, which provided the quality and beauty of the gravure printing and accurately transmitted the details of the image, colors and shadows. Uniflex`s victory was logical thanks to the high quality printing and latest technologies, successfully introduced by "Uniflex". Therefore the packaging is incredibly colorful and very attractive to the consumer. We congratulate team of "Uniflex" and our partner JV "Santa BremorВ» with the honoured success and victory!
Full HD Flexo 149 lpi is a new standard of Uniflex!
We are pleased to inform you that Uniflex introduced the newest quality standard in flexo technology. Actively cooperating with international designers, as well as with our partners - Esko Graphics, we have taken another step forward. That's why now HD flexo to us is a history, and it's time for a new, more advanced technology - Full HD Flexo. With the technology of Full HD Flexo printing has increased the minimum screening up to 149 lpi, and each new layout will be implemented by this technology. Without a doubt, this is our competitive advantage, as such a high screening it is not a singular case for us, it`s a new standard for stable quality and beautiful flexoprinting on industrial scale. Thus, no longer in our printing house, we use screening below 149 lpi. By using a combination of Full HD Flexo + Multicolor technologies we raise the standards of quality and beauty o f printing to a new level. This is the next stage of development and is now the starting point for our printing house is 149 lpi and higher!
How do we achieve the stability of such a high-quality printing? Thanks to close cooperation with a global supplier of integrated solutions for prepress Esko Graphics, printing technology with the use of the flat-top dot was obtained. Such dot can transmit ink to the packaging more stable without the "dot gain", as a result the image is more detailed, and in combination with Multicolor technology also incredibly colorful.
When printing with screening within 150 lines per inch Full HD Flexo allows to convert gravure work into flexo. This way we can obtain a well detailed picture, contrast, smooth transition of color to zero and smooth vignettes.
While for some printinghouse 149 lpi is an achievement, for Uniflex it`s a standard! All this is possible thanks to the cutting-edge equipment with Inline UV2 digital UV exposure and advanced screening technologies to produce sharper and more accurate imaging, and of cause high professionalism of the technical staff of Uniflex. We are working your product to be successful, raising the standards of flexible packaging, introducing innovative technology, we do not stop we go further, extending the boundaries of the possible.

International competition "The Best Product - 2013"
As part of the exhibition in Moscow "ProdExpo 2013" an international competition "The Best Product - 2013" was held. The packaging of seeds for TM "Stanichnie baiki" produced by "Uniflex" for its partner "Agrosoyuz" was awarded a gold medal in the "Best Packaging 2013" category!
In this packaging MFX technology was used. This technology allows to get a flatter image on the packaging and to create a realistic effect of the metal surface. Therefore the packaging of the "Cossack stories" seeds was so expressive. The doy-pack with a zip fastener for seeds is practical and easy to use, moreover it preserves the quality of seeds.
We are pleased to participate in the success of our partner! We declare with confidence that in the future we are ready to work on joint projects, creating excellent packaging for the products of our customers. We congratulate the company "Agrosoyuz" with on their victory, the ten-year anniversary, and thank for cooperation!
