Focus on Product Performance
Service Hierarchy:Perfect Technology
Flint Group was a supplier of blankets to DS Smith Italy at the time they invested in new EB technology from press manufacturer Goebbel. As the only print company in Europe to adopt this technology, DS Smith looked to global leader in Energy Curing products, Flint Group to support them.

Flint Group has very good EB business in N America, with market leading products, so we took the existing formula from there, adapted it to comply with European regulations and began to produce in our European facility.

DS Smith Italy – Case Study – Perfect Technology
Combining ink and blanket technology from one supplier for this unique system has given DS Smith a solid and reliable platform for their production – Something that no other single supplier can offer in Europe.
In addition we were able to supply suitable blankets for the EB curing system, thanks to our long term experience in North America. These blankets were again formulated based on North American specifications and are now produced in Europe specially for DS Smith
We’re now looking into what other areas Flint Group can support us in, for example with our preflight process, our European colour library and our print quality improvement projects.”
“I like Flint Group’s approach to the conversion of our Lockerbie site with a clearly defined structure to the project.
In fact, a key benefit of working with Flint Group is the wide range of services they provide; a big one for me being the support they will give us in ISO accreditation.
Andy Young - Graphic / Print Development Manager - DS Smith
Perfect Supply
Ongoing Support to improve quality and supply chain efficiencies
A major project has been started with a number of areas being targeted for improvement: colour management, inventory and print best practice. At the same time Lockerbie was converted to Low Migration technology.

Flint Group created a package of solutions, including on site mixing and dispensing, ISO compliance support and food packaging GMP.

More than 200 colours were matched, an in-plant operation was set –up and best practice workshops were run.

Several months later, the DSS management has asked Flint Group to extend the scope of the project to include Perfect Force KPI projects and a Perfect Colour project.

- IPA reduction programme
This site was running Flint Group Novastar F908 Low Tack BIO inks and IPA levels of more than 10% – 12% but with excessive board debris on blankets and ink scumming. Fount and IPA were from a competitor of Flint Group.

GPI sister site in Bristol (UK) had exact same set-up except for a different fount – experimental product from Flint Group – Varn E9143/1.

After switching to the Varn product they reduced IPA dosage. Results improved immediately.

Estimated cost saving of lower IPA consumption was €12,000 per annum.

Communications Platform

Flint Group
as a supplier, from transition of business to logistics and reliable communication, reduces switching impact and builds supply chain confidence.
DS Smith Lockerbie Case Study
West Rock needed a product capable of working well across a range of board qualities, especially important on some jobs where they were experiencing delamination

Flint Group as the incumbent supplier, offered Novavit F918 as a good all round option, but it was necessary to develop a low tack version to cope with the delamination.

Working with Westrock in The Netherlands, we developed a new product with
low tack and this has now been rolled-out as standard across all of their
sites in EMEA

Westrock - Case Study
Incumbent supplier at DS Smith Italy when they invested in Goebbel EB Press

Flint Group is market leader in N America in EB inks

DSS were the only European EB company – so they approached Flint Group to support them.

We are now producing EB for DS Smith in Europe

Also, specially formulated blankets for EB application being produced in Europe for DS Smith

Combining ink and blanket technology from one supplier for this unique system has given DS Smith a solid and reliable platform for their production

No other single supplier can offer that in Europe.
