SATO Receives Accolades at Label Industry Global Awards 2018

30 Oct 2018

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 honored in the letterpress color 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 colors of the label design which expresses the freshness of the sushi roll.

In order to create halftone dots to reproduce the highest possible color 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.

SATO Group has established a system to consistently and comprehensively cover all processes from the development of label substrates, production of base paper, design proposal, printing and processing.
