A flexo plate impacts more than print quality. Transformational flexo means cost-effective, efficient flexible packaging production.
FLEXCEL NX Plates user TPN Flexpack attribute the smooth running of print production and less operational issues to the technology, with a number of specific benefits:
“Improved plate life gives us longer runs, with stable print quality throughout. We can run the presses faster — up to 300m/min, depending on the design and run-length. Because we use smaller-volume anilox rollers, our ink consumption is reduced by 10-15%, yet we can print higher densities.
“Add in greater efficiency at the pre-press stage, and the production process is more efficient, more productive and less wasteful.” Ananchat Thangkasemvathana, Managing Director, TPN Flexpak.

Prepress Manager at Amcor ANZ, Gary McQuiggan, found traditional digital flexo plates failed to deliver ECG to a high enough standard:
“I really struggled on a conventional plate to get that into a space the client was happy with. But using a CMYK ECG approach on a NX plate, I had a much better density and gamut range, and got it pretty much first up.”
