The Tyler extranet enables our customers to gain real time access to stocks held at distribution 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, it enables customers to check the progress of current products on order, status of that order, and due dates. It can also incorporate a forecast based system. Purchase Orders sent to us during normal working hours ensure that goods in stock at our warehouse are prepared for despatch immediately.
Purchase Orders raised outside these hours or at weekends will be despatched the next working day. Our web ordering system will also advise buyers by email as soon as stock levels have dropped below agreed re-order levels for any product line.
With a large array of the latest technology blown film extrusion lines, we can extrude tubular film up to 16 metres in diameter. All our films are produced internally to guarantee both the quality and complete control over the production process. Co-extrusion from three layers up to seven layers is available, enabling us to provide films with excellent barrier properties. Film construction utilising EVOH / OPA / PP is used in many applications in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and construction industries where barrier properties are an essential requirement.
Printing And Laminating
We offer both Flexographic and Rotogravure printing and can print up to 1.45 metres wide and a repeat length of 1150mm in up to 10 colours process. Digital control of our printing presses ensures consistent colour management. We can print utilising high definition Flexo plates incorporating flat top dot technology which greatly increases visual impact. Our Rotogravure presses are capable of printing up to 10 colours, 1200mm wide and up to 900mm repeat length which enables reproduction of the most complex designs. Solvent-free and water-based lamination are available, up to a four layer structure (Quadraplex) in the following structures: PET / Metallised PET / BOPP / Metallised BOPP / CPP / OPA / PE / EVOH / ALU Foil.
High quality process Flexographic printing, utilising the latest design of gearless presses in up to 10 colours, is available. We can also print using the latest technology High Definition Flexo plates. This new development elevates the quality of our Flexographic printing closer to the standards achievable with Rotogravure. Please go to the ‘Design’ section for more information about High Definition Printing.
Rotogravure printing in up to 10 colours gives superlative results. Modern computer controlled laser engraving has resulted in origination costs that are much closer to those of digital Flexo. Various inline options are available such as printing on both sides of the film or cold seal application.
Production of bags, sacks and pouches are made on modern conversion machinery, and we are able to offer finished products in a wide range of formats.
Our products are made in accordance with PAFA voluntary standards and our procedures are in accordance with ISO 9001 practices. At our manufacturing sites and our distribution warehouse, products are tested and procedures followed in accordance with both ISO and BRC standards. Physical properties of tensile strength, co-efficient of friction, impact resistance, colour standards of the substrates and printing and packaging requirements, where these are critical, are examined. We hold the BRC/IoP, ISO 9001 Quality Standard and the ISO 14000 Environmental Standard.
Quality Control and Quality Assurance procedures enable us to deliver consistent product quality to our customers, irrespective of the number and size of individual orders.
We operate a colour management system which maintains a central database of all print designs. This means we can ensure consistent print quality is achieved, irrespective of which printing process is used.
