Creative Labels of VT adds Xeikon ThermoFlexX

July 17, 2013

Xeikon has announced that Creative Labels of Vermont, a Winooski, VT-based label printing company, has purchased a Xeikon ThermoFlexX 30 digital imager. The ThermoFlexX 30 is a reliable, high-quality system for flexographic platemaking to serve a wide and growing group of customers.

Dwayne Wall, owner of Creative Labels, said that the company has shown its commitment to customer care for more than 30 years, and is focused on providing business solutions, not just labels. As a second-generation printer, Wall pays attention to customers and the tools he needs to provide the best service.

“We work hard to engage customers and ask smart questions about what they need from their labels so we can get the job done right the first time. We understand what success is to them and make sure that we have the right equipment and capabilities to deliver. That’s why we chose the Xeikon ThermoFlexX solution,” Wall says.

The Xeikon ThermoFlexX product line of imagers allows users to consistently produce high-quality digital flexographic and letterpress plates at resolutions of 2540 or 5080 dpi. With this resolution, the product is technology-ready to raise the quality level of output to the newest industry standards.

ThermoFlexX advantages include ergonomic plate mounting and a hybrid drum that holds plates in place by vacuum or magnetics. An advanced clamping design enables plates to be mounted directly on to the drum while vacuum sliders offer the flexibility to use plates of any width.

“Xeikon is the only player in this market that offers both digital label presses as well as digital imagers for flexographic platemaking to label converters,” says Michael Ring, president of Xeikon America, Inc. “Partnering with Creative Labels of Vermont is a perfect illustration of the options we provide to customer-focused label producers.”
