Mark Andy Print Products, the supplies and consumables division of Mark Andy Inc., has announced the addition of DigiFlex to its platemaking equipment offering. Mark Andy Print Products specializes in the distribution of value-added platemaking equipment and a variety of pressroom supplies, specifically in support of optimizing and advancing the flexo workflow.
The DigiFlex FlexoJet system is an inkjet-based computer-to-plate (CTP) system for photopolymer flexographic, letterpress, dry-offset, and rotary silk screen printing technologies. This system allows high quality, affordable analog plate materials to be imaged digitally – producing superior results with very low acquisition and ongoing costs. Mark Andy Print Products will market and distribute the DigiFlex flexographic CTP system via direct and inside sales organizations, concentrating on label and package printers and converters throughout North America. The efficiency of this equipment is an attractive solution for small format label and package printing companies to bring platemaking in-house.
DuPont Cyrel, which is the leading plate material brand also carried by Mark Andy Print Products, has tested and validated the DigiFlex CTP system and have found it to be fully compatible with Cyrel solvent and Cyrel FAST plates. Joe Calmese, director of Flexo Consumables for Mark Andy Print Products says, “Having the ability to offer DigiFlex and DuPont Cyrel plates together is a unique and exclusive offering which allows us to provide a total solution to converters in their platemaking efforts. Mark Andy Print Products strives to provide unique products that truly optimize a converters’ operation. This combination will enable many of our customers to manage their own digital platemaking in-house improving their overall efficiency.”
Kevin Cazabon, DigiFlex director of sales for North America, adds, “We are proud to be associated with the premiere brand that is Mark Andy, and that they will be offering our solution to their extensive customer base. When combined with the DuPont line of high-quality solvent and thermally-processed flexographic plates, together we provide a unique value and return-on-investment for the narrow-web market.”
