AV Flexologic receives second award for RoboCell system

Netherlands-based mounting and pre-press equipment specialist AV Flexologic has secured the second recognition in 2023 for its RoboCell robotic system. This time, the company received the prestigious EFTA-Benelux Flexo Award.

In April, the Flexographic Technical Association recognized AV Flexologic’s RoboCell in the US with the Technical Innovation Award. This November, the company celebrated the second award in Belgium, which was assigned by the European Flexographic Technical Association Benelux.

The association strongly emphasizes sharing and expanding knowledge of the latest technical developments in flexo printing processes.

The EFTA-Benelux Flexo Award is reserved for companies that demonstrate exceptional advancements in the flexographic printing industry. 

For the AV Flexologic team, this award represents a significant validation of their ongoing efforts to keep flexographic printing competitive and elevate it to new heights.

The Flexo Award also allows AV Flexologic to be eligible for the international FTA Europe Diamond Awards. 

The RoboCELL system offers a completely robotized pre-press workflow. It provides robotic sleeve handling (RoboSleeve), robotic tape application (RoboTape), robotic plate loading (RoboPlate), and fully automatic mounting (FAMM 3.0).

‘This reward is the icing on the cake,’ said AV Flexologic managing director Bowden Maingay. ‘It is a result of the great partnerships with our customers and suppliers, combined with some extremely clever design and enormous dedication by the AV team. We are proud to help improve the mounting process of our customers.’

AV Flexologic’s journey to success began in 2005 when the company invented automatic mounting and revolutionized the flexographic industry. In 2007, AV Flexologic won its first FTA Technical Innovation Award thanks to the first-generation fully automatic flexo plate mounter FAMM 1.0.
