USA • Flint Group launches two new products: nyloprint WF Sharp Digital, a water washable, film-based plate for the label market, and nyloflex XVH Digital, a thermal Flat Top Dot flexo plate for the flexible packaging and label market.
WF Sharp Digital
Flint Group launches nyloprint WF Sharp Digital, a water washable, film-based plate for the high-end label market. The new plate is suitable for high quality print jobs as well as for aluminum and plastic laminated tubes.
According to the company group this new technology delivers digital images with up to 10.160 dpi for “superior” print quality with sharper images, more open reverses and finer highlights. The digital workflow allows data transfer without loss of quality. The latest generation of photopolymer plate technology allows the plate to be processed on all common types of processing equipment. The high flexibility of the polyester base and its superior adaption to different cylinders simplify the plate mounting. Furthermore, according to Flint, the durability of the digital label plate leads to longer print runs and increased resource efficiency.
Nyloflex XVH Digital
The latest addition of a new flexo thermal plate to its nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processing System, the nyloflex XVH Digital, is the first inherently flat top dot plate of the thermal plate family, with a formulation optimised to be processed on the nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processor, according to the company, The versatile plate is designed to serve the flexible packaging and label market, and is set to run with all ink systems. According to Flint, there is no need for additional equipment or auxiliaries, which is suited for printers who want to benefit of lightning fast plate production and of flat top dot plates.
