Stuttgart, Germany, 19th June 2018 – With a focus on innovation, Flint Group Flexographic installed its first nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processing System in China. At the end of April 2018, the first unit of nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processor was successfully installed at KECAI (Beijing) Technology Co. Ltd., China. The nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processor incorporates the speed of thermal plate making with incredible plate and print quality and offers a smart design with an enhanced user interface. The distinctive characteristics of the processor provides unprecedented control and allows for more consistent and stable plate production encompassing “Thermal like you’ve never seen before.

KECAI is a newly established trade shop, who provides high-level processed flexo plates for advanced packaging printing, not limited to printing applications of labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and paper cups.

Mr. Guan Heng, the Director of KECAI, has been looking for solutions, which shall deliver not only high quality printing but also which are sustainable. The nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processing System is very convincing with its focus on innovations such as:

  • An intelligent configuration of the nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processor that allows few components which leads to less maintenance, less downtime and lower operating costs

  • Specially developed nyloflex® Thermal Printing Plates in combination with the unique heating system that ensures high plate and print quality

  • Engineered fabric of the nyloflex® Developer Rolls is designed to be highly efficient and environmentally friendly

“The nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processing System fits perfectly our needs in terms of advanced quality and sustainability. Quality is the competition advantage, which is necessary to win business and to satisfy customers. While in China, particularly in Beijing, the increasing more strict environmental protection requirements need an environmental-friendly solution. I have the great honor to be the first operator of this state-of-the-art technology in China”, says Mr. Guan Heng.

Magenta Zheng, General Manager of FGFP China adds: “The nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processing System doesn’t scarify any quality and advantages from the solvent process system. It will overturn the Chinese conclusion that thermal processed plates cannot match the printing performance derived from solvent processed ones. It will become one of the main plate processing applications soon.”
