MacDermid Graphics Solutions has confirmed it is installing a new photopolymer plate production line at its manufacturing facility in Wigan, UK. The new line will double MacDermid’s current production capacity and will be the primary supply source for customers throughout Europe, Africa, The Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
The new plate production line will be a parallel operation to the company’s current production line in Morristown, TN, USA. The line will feature state-of-the-art technology all integrated within a single control system. Additionally, energy-efficient features within the line will help to reduce MacDermid’s per unit greenhouse gas emissions. The new production line in Wigan is expected to come online in the second half of 2022.
