One of the highlights of the show was Harper’s HIVE (High Imaging Volume Engraving) line of engravings series which delivers high levels of quality and predictability with exclusive print performance. This line includes Harper’s exclusive Patent Pending Cladless Anilox Sleeve Technology, which features no aluminum cladding, lighter weight, corrosion resistance, and more.
Another big hit drawing significant interest was Harper’s award-winning patented QD™ ink proofing and flatbed printing system. This system has become the color-matching proofer of choice by many of the leading ink manufacturers. With the expansion of functional printing into the flexo and gravure markets, Harper has developed printing features and accessories that minimize the amount of expensive materials necessary to test printed electronic concepts and ideas. Harper has also expanded the engraving geometries and volumes for the proofers to accommodate the different deposit properties of functional inks needed for functional and printed electronics.
The new QD™ Laboratory Master Flatbed Printer also generated a lot of positive attention. This printer features a module construction with programmable travel speed and digital display allowing travel speeds to be set in inches or centimeters and maximum speeds of 1000in/minute or 2500cm/minute.
Harper Corp. was thrilled to see such a positive turnout and be able to share its innovative technology. Harper will be an exhibitor at the next drupa, which will be held June 23-July 3, 2020, in Düsseldorf, Germany.
