Flint Group at INFO*FLEX 2016

Embracing the power of the past, and the force of the future

Plymouth, Minnesota and Charlotte, North Carolina (February 26, 2016):  Flint Group is pleased to, once again, be exhibitors at the FTA INFO*FLEX, March 6 - 9, 2016, at the Omni in Fort Worth, Texas, USA.

The experts await at stand 415 at INFO*FLEX 2016! Flint Group provides the widest range of products for flexographic printing including flexible packaging, folding cartons, labels, corrugated boxes, adhesives, printing plates, sleeves, adaptors, die-cutting blankets, and anvil covers. With innovative products and new developments, Flint Group is the resource for flexographic printing requirements!

Flint Group Flexographic Products offers The Easy Way to achieve flat top dots on flexo printing plates and will highlight its newest plate for flexible packaging, nyloflex® FTF Digital. This inherent flat top dot plate with a textured surface requires no additional time-consuming surface screening, and no additional steps, consumables or equipment to process. “We believe the new technology has broken the seal on functional or intelligent plate technology that will pave the way for innovation over the next decade and beyond,” states P.J. Fronczkiewicz, Product Manager Flint Group Flexographic Products.

Flint Group’s rotec® High Speed Sleeve, developed with a highly compressible surface that reduces press bounce and allows printers to increase press speeds as much as 30 - 80%, will be presented at the stand. “The unique dampening layer was designed to act like a shock absorber to soften the sleeves’ bounce that can occur when running at high speeds. This results in a wider impression latitude, which allows the printing of half tone images and solids on the same print deck with consistent high quality throughout long press runs,” explains Rich Emmerling, Technical Director Flint Group Flexographic Products.
