SATO RECEIVES ACCOLADES AT LABEL INDUSTRY GLOBAL AWARDS 201830/10/18
Second recognition for printing excellence in three years
Tokyo, October 30, 2018 – SATO (TOKYO:6287), a leading global provider of auto-ID solutions that empower workforces and streamline operations, received the Best of the Best Award for its Daimyo Futomaki sushi roll label at the Label Industry Global Awards 2018 held at Labelexpo Americas 2018.
Best of the Best Awards are presented to winners in five categories—Combination Printing, Letterpress Printing, Offset Litho Printing, Flexographic Printing and Digital Printing. SATO was honoured in the letterpress colour process category.
SATO’s winning label was printed using a vivid red ink and a highly concentrated black ink instead of a combination of standard process inks, thereby bringing to life the powerful colours of the label design which expresses the freshness of the sushi roll.
In order to create halftone dots to reproduce the highest possible colour quality, SATO worked meticulously to ensure a printing pressure conducive to producing a uniform and stable output. The result was a highly accurate finish that was suited to the product.
