Flint Group's four divisions form 'one-stop-shop' for converters


This ranges from prepress and pre-production, through digital print and embellishments, converting and delivery.

Combining industry strengths, four of Flint Group's divisions (Flexographic Products, Narrow Web, Digital Solutions–Xeikon–and ThermoFlexX) are showcasing solutions that enable label printers and converters to better position themselves to address emerging market realities.

“Flint Group is a one-stop shop for label converters, and during Labelexpo Europe we are demonstrating that for the first time on one booth,” comments Antoine Fady, CEO Flint Group. “This ranges from prepress and pre-production, through digital print and embellishments, converting and delivery. And we are excited to have brought some new products to the show. As always, our teams of Narrow Web, Flexographic Products and digital print experts are on hand to learn more about the business needs of visitors to our stand, providing them with relevant information about how we can help.”

With a product line ranging from nyloflex printing plates and equipment, rotec sleeves and adapters, Flint Group Flexographic Products is displaying its comprehensive technology for the printing industry. New at the show is the nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processing System, with a smarter design that is easier to use. It delivers thermal platemaking with no compromise in quality.

The nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processor is on the show floor to demonstrate its control and more consistent and stable plate production provided by the new equipment. At the heart of the processing system are the nyloflex Thermal Printing Plates, which serve a variety of application needs, including film; and the nyloflex Developer Roll, which is designed to be highly efficient and environmentally friendly.

“This is thermal like you’ve never seen before. We believe our new, integrated solution is in a class of its own," says Friedrich von Rechteren, VP sales EMEA and global marketing. "We achieved this result by looking at the thermal process holistically. By combining the best in equipment design, plate development and engineered fabric, Flint Group is offering a system which leads to reduced costs, improved quality and improved sustainability.”

Visitors to the booth may also request a free nyloflex Xpress Plate Trial Test Kit.

Also on display at the booth is Flint Group’s patent-pending, state-of-the-art rotec Eco Bridge for use in flexographic printing presses and on plate-mounting equipment. The rotec Eco Bridge is an adapter with a breathable metal ring that creates an air pillow to allow easy and fast mounting of sleeves. This bridge reduces up to 90% of the air volume requirement, up to 30% reduction in noise and significantly improves ease and speed of mounting all sleeves.

Flint Group Narrow Web is also demonstrating its comprehensive range of food packaging compliant printing inks for all major printing technologies: UV mercury flexo, UV LED flexo, water-based flexo and UV and EB offset. The company is presenting its latest innovations in low mgration– with a special focus on the award-winning UV LED low migration technology, EkoCure ANCORA.
