The ThermoFlexX 30 imaging system is set to feature at Xeikon Café on 20th March 2018. Known internally at Xeikon Pre-Press as “Pandas” these systems share the same advanced optics as larger ThermoFlexX systems.
The digital plate format of 25x30” (635x762mm) is a perfect fit for flexo or letterpress plates for Label printers. Steel back letterpress plates for dry-offset print are most conveniently supported with a ‘Hybrid’ vacuum and magnetic drum.
See for yourself the amazing tiny footprint that fits into the smallest plate making area. The necessary dust extraction and air supplies are all cleverly built into the machine. Only a standard electrical mains socket (single-phase) is required!
ThermoFlexX systems are fully open, taking industry standard 1-bit TIFF image files. They can integrate with the most sophisticated design systems available or with common DTP programs such as Adobe Illustrator via a low-cost RIP.
This makes the start-up cost of Going Digital surprisingly affordable and very straightforward.
Output is also fully open too with all plate manufacturers digital flexo and letterpress plates supported be they solvent, water or thermally processed.
