Flint Group Flexographic Products Informs International Sales
Team About Wide Product Range and Innovations
At the end of September, more than 120 participants from 43 countries
accepted Flint Group Flexographic Products’ invitation to a two-day symposium of
the global sales organisation in Stuttgart. Mario Busshoff, Vice President and
General Manager, was highly satisfied with the good response, and the
participants appreciated the motivating atmosphere that encouraged an
international exchange of experience and strengthened the team spirit. In
addition, the attendees unanimously appraised the presentation as extremely
worthwhile, as the comprehensive information on the current status of the broad
product portfolio offered a systematic overview, and various new developments
were presented in detail.
The innovative UV exposure technology provided
a technical highlight for flexo printing plates, which Flint Group Flexographic
Products presented for the first time during Labelexpo in Chicago in September
2010. The new nyloflex® NExT technology is currently in the beta test phase and
will become commercially available in 2011.
- The broad range of nyloflex® printing plates, sleeves
and equipment allows one to choose the appropriate product for each application,
from corrugated printing, to film printing, to printing forms for the
In-the-Round Technology (ITR), including adapters and high-performance
processing equipment (up to 120 sleeves per day).
- In the comprehensive
range of rotec® sleeves and adapters, the rotec® Premium Sleeve offers the
highest dimensional stability available.
- In the area of nyloprint®
letterpress printing, there is a clear tendency to go digital, as suitable films
will no longer be available in the near future.
- A trend towards automation
can be observed with regards to processing equipment. Examples are the compact
nyloflex® Combi FII system for label applications, as well as the new nyloflex®
Automated Plate Processor (APP), which has been presented for the first time and
will be available at the beginning of 2011. In this equipment, the process of
washing to finishing is entirely integrated.
