Inkjet manufacturer Screen Europe has appointed Juan Cano as Director Business Development Flexible Packaging, to lead and expand its new flexible packaging digital printing division.
“Juan is an accomplished and highly experienced leader in the flexible packaging
industry, with a proven track record in business development and sustainable
sales growth of high-value, innovative packaging equipment. His experience and
stature make him the right person to help expand our newly established flexible
packaging digital printing platform”, says Bui Burke, Senior VP Sales Screen
Earlier this year, Screen announced the launch next year of its Truepress PAC
830F, a new and innovative water-based inkjet digital printing press specifically
designed for the flexible packaging industry. The Truepress PAC 830F will be the
cornerstone of Screen’s ambitious flexible packaging printing division.
Screen’s new flexible packaging printing technology builds on over 75 years’
experience in engineering of innovative printing solutions for the packaging
industry. With the Truepress PAC 830F, Screen responds to the growing demand
for technology that allows printing short runs with a much lower production cost
than conventional analogue printing systems (Flexo, Gravure or Offset) and a
faster time-to-market. The Truepress PAC 830F is 100% digital inkjet, which
means it is a non-contact printing deposition process allowing for full colour
consistency, exceptional print resolution and sharper detail. In addition to the
CMYK printheads, the printing engine provides a heavy white inkjet coverage
that achieves a high level of opacity on clear PET and BOPP film substrates.
With more than 20 years’ experience in delivering sales growth globally, Juan
Cano worked in several Senior positions at Bobst before joining SCREEN.
Previously, he has held several other sales & marketing roles helping to shape
and develop the international markets for state-of-the-art capital equipment
manufactures like Russell Finex and Tate & Lyle. He graduated in Chemistry at
the University of Granada and holds an MBA from the Oxford Brookes University.
Screen’s flexible packaging printing platform is its third digital printing division.
The other two being the Truepress Jet 520HD platform of commercial printers
and the Truepress Jet L350UV platform of inkjet label presses.
