Hacoplast team EC project review

The Hacoplast team have recently completed the first year project review with the project partners and the European Commission of the 24 month, €3m EC grant we are helping to deliver which aims to bring to market the state-of-the-art Roto-Hybrid Process.

The process combines two novel pre-press gravure printing cylinder process technologies; namely the Hybrid Cylinder technology to enable an upscaled size variable printing cylinder production facility and a Diamond-Like Carbon coating process to replace chrome plating and other electrolytic processes like copper or nickel plating.

The project review ended with a visit by the European Commission to the HCR coating plant in Germany and included a demonstration of how the process works.

The Hacoplast team were able to demonstrate to the EC its leading edge polymer research and how this helps facilitate the project from the perspective of the Hybrid Cylinder, a size variable printing cylinder for use in the gravure printing industry.
