The world of narrow web is getting wider every day – Flint Group would like to be your guide as you Discover New Possibilities in this dynamic market

The Easy Way – New possibilities with the revolutionary new flexo plate for flat top dots from Flint Group Flexographic Products

With the new nyloflex® FTF Digital, Flint Group introduced this summer a new and easy way to achieve high quality results in flexible packaging and label printing. The new plate provides flat top dots by simply processing the plate like any standard digital plate. Besides, a special, textured plate surface eliminates the need for time consuming surface screening and provides an even ink laydown and increased solid ink density with just a standard resolution of 2400 or 2540 dpi. Thus it allows achieving a significant reduction in complexity and efficiency gain in prepress and plate making.

In 2014, Flint Group introduced another highlight: the nyloflex® NEF Digital, a flexo plate especially designed for the nyloflex® NExT exposure technology, for efficient creation of flat top dots and excellent reproduction of surface screenings. "The customers feedback over the last months has confirmed that nyloflex® NEF Digital in combination with nyloflex® NExT enables to exploit the full potential of this exposure technology.” says Dana Contineanu, Product Manager nyloflex®. And, although the nyloflex® NEF Digital plate is designed for the high-output UV LED exposure, when exposed with regular tube light units it provides additional benefits compared to other digital plates.
Print samples and plates of the nyloflex® FTF Digital and nyloflex® NEF Digital will be available at the Flint Group stand.
