Digital Flex installs nyloflex exposure unit

August 20, 2013

The purchase was made via Italian distributor Macchingraf SRL.

Digital Flex has purchased nyloflex ACE Digital printing plates, among other Flint Group products. Both companies have enjoyed a very close and successful cooperation for more than 20 years. Macchingraf SRL is part of the international Staples Group and has distributed Flint Group products since the end of the 1960’s. In 2003 and 2012, the company has been honored as the distributor of the year.

"Our company has been very innovative and is always looking ahead," says Andrea Vergnano, one of the owners and production director of Digital Flex, "however, we have realised that our competitors have been growing in terms of quality and with up to date technologies in the past months. Nowadays, companies that are able to invest can reach a competitive advantage by investing in the proper technologies. We decided to install a nyloflex NExT exposure to keep our competitive edge by offering something different to the market. We have in fact invested in three new CTP units and the nyloflex NExT exposure to further fulfill the market needs in terms of quality and to enlarge our offer."

According to the company, the nyloflex ACE plate offers considerable benefits to the printer: besides a precise reproduction of details, high contrast images and smoother vignettes it shows its strengths particularly with outstanding stability on press, reduced downtimes due to a very low dust attraction and a clean running nature during printing. It displays excellent properties when used with the nyloflex NExT exposure technology, for which it has been especially designed.

The company adds: The nyloflex NExT exposure, globally established as flat top dot technology, enables the printer to achieve an optimised ink lay down on press, as well as it exploits the potential to improve the highlights and fine vignettes. The LED based exposure technology offers precise and reliable surface screening as well as the reproduction of the finest image details. Also in corrugated post-print, the nyloflex NExT exposure shows not only an improvement in reproduction but also a significant reduction of the fluting effect.

The exposure technology is applicable for all digital flexographic printing plates, regardless of plate thickness and format and can be easily implemented into the existing digital workflow. There is no need for additional consumables.
