Specializing in third-party service, Arsea has a clientele that work both for the local market and for major international brands
Arsea, a Veronese company founded in 1981 and still managed by Perlato family, was recently recognized at the 2022 Oscar Della Stampa awards, taking top honors in the Best Finishing and Special Substrates category. With this, Arsea enters the prestigious club of the best italian graphic and converting companies. Helping to generate this success is the technological support of BOBST. We talk about it with the owner, Elisa Perlato.
Print finishing is a process that has its origins in the world of art and craftsmanship. In its more than 40-year history, Arsea has been able to combine the spirit of the craftsman, imprinted by its founder Stefano Perlato, with that of a technological company, equipped with machinery for productions that meet the needs of Industry 4.0 processes.
Today this same spirit is shared by Elisa Perlato, who is at the helm of the company. Specializing in third-party service, Arsea has a clientele that work both for the local market and for major international brands. This was one of the reasons that the jury of the Oscar della Stampa – an event promoted by Stratego Group with the support of Argi, Assografici, ENIP GCT and Fespa Italia – chose to award Arsea in the Best Finishing and Special Substrates category.
The Veronese company, not inclined to be in the limelight, was a little bit surprised but also very happy about this important recognition. It confirms that the company has taken the right track since 1981, the year in which Stefano Perlato founded Arsea by starting production in a small home space. The first machine to be installed was a solvent screen-printing machine for customized car accessories.
Today, Arsea employs 25 people and offers lamination, dry, varnishing services (with 8 UV and 6 solvent-based lines) and 4 hot foil stamping machines, one of which is a historic cylindrical machine. Arsea’s core market is made up of 40% publishing and another 40% of packaging and paper-converting sector. The remaining 20% consist of various sectors; since they can use screen-printing on all substrates, its application possibilities become numerous and diverse.
Intuitive and efficient, the machine can be also equipped with the exclusive REGISTRON camera for hologram application, which guarantees maximum register precision at high production speeds for unparalleled quality of the finished product. Thanks to the patented external unwind module and independently driven reels, the machine is also extremely versatile and the production possibilities are almost endless.
Depending on customers’ needs, the VISIONFOIL 104 can also be equipped to switch rapidly from hot stamping to die-cutting. This allows the machine to cover a wide range of applications while ensuring impeccable productivity and quality. From the moment it went into operation at Arsea, the new VISIONFOIL 104 has never stopped producing, except for scheduled maintenance, allowing the company to penetrate new markets.
