My Flexo-Press Is Faulty: Where To Look For Spare Parts?

Posted by David Lee on Nov 13, 2018 12:06:00 PM

A printing press is an important investment. It’s not a time for false economy, and nor is it a time for settling for something that’s not a perfect match for your needs.

Whatever press type you have we would recommend you always purchase original parts or seek approved technical support. This might not be possible if you have imported a machine or it is an older model no longer in production or supported.

At Focus Labels, we take a very pragmatic approach to a client’s relationship with their flexo-press. We’re engineers who have designed, built, and maintained our machines, and who are committed to keeping them in excellent working order.

The result is that the second hand market has become flooded with used and refurbished machines that were state of the art 10 years ago but are now inefficient and outdated.
