The flexographic products and packaging, and narrow web divisions of Flint Group will jointly display their most recent innovations for you to experience at the upcoming LabelExpo Americas September 9-11 in Rosemont, Ill.
Flint Group Flexographic Products division will present the nyloflex Ace Up digital plate in addition to the nyloflex Ace digital printing plate. These high-durometer photopolymer plates run clean on press and provide excellent ink transfer on either paper and rough substrates or film and foil applications (respectively) to result in high ink density and homogenous, smooth solids. The plates display a long run life and excellent stability in printing, which result in a significant increase in efficiency. Whether you print with water or solvent based inks or UV inks, Flint Group has you covered.
For your flexo sleeve requirements, try the revolutionary new Rotec high-speed sleeve with a specialized design for high-speed press performance. The exclusive composition of the Rotec high-speed sleeve simultaneously reduces bounce-induced skipping while allowing for a significant increase in press speed. With its unique polyurethane structure, the novel sleeve can be combined with virtually any type of adapter or cylinder to achieve a reduction in press vibration and bounce. The Rotec high-speed sleeve is the perfect choice for your most difficult graphic requirements.
Developed specifically for narrow and mid-web printing with increased dimensional stability and excellent edge stability, the Rotec label sleeve exhibits excellent concentricity under various temperature/humidity conditions and performs well with virtually all types of adapters, plates and mounting tapes. The highly durable Rotec label sleeve can be customized with the addition of special upgrades, such as notches and end rings to further enhance the durability and to extend the sleeve life.
