TRESU Group has announced the sale of a multi-station flexographic printing line, with additional digital printing capabilities, to IGT Global Solutions Corporation, for printing instant lottery tickets at its facility in Lakeland, Florida.

Scheduled to start production by the end of this year, the press will increase the company’s production capacity to print and convert foil and cards between 203.2µm (eight-point) and 304.8µm (12-point) thickness into secure, high-end products. With its customised configuration, the servo-driven press offers optimised job changeover times, minimised material waste and outstanding print quality.

Michael Chambrello, IGT chief executive officer, North America Lottery, commented: “Our success in the instant ticket printing and services business over the past several years has enabled us to invest in an expanded facility and the new press. With the expansion, we will be able to offer lottery and gaming operators the latest technologies, improved flexibility in production scheduling and a wider variety of products, to help support their sales growth.”
