Eede, The Netherlands, 16 April, 2014 – ThermoFlexX will be a key player at the forthcoming Xeikon Café, where the imager manufacturer will be demonstrating a ThermoFlexX 30 model. These events have established themselves as important opportunities to view new technologies from Xeikon and its Aura Partners – the wide cross section of industry leading suppliers who also participate. The next Xeikon Café will be held at the company’s production site in Lier, Belgium, from Tuesday 20th – Thursday 22nd May, and will focus on packaging innovations.
“There has been tremendous interest in ThermoFlexX and its imager technology over the last few months so this forthcoming Xeikon Café is perfectly timed for us to demonstrate the many unique features incorporated into the range,” says Christophe Lievens, director sales and marketing for basysPrint and ThermoFlexX. “The theme of ‘packaging innovations’ is also ideal as the packaging sector is a huge potential market for us.”
The ThermoFlexX 30, with a maximum plate size of 635 mm x 500 mm, is aimed at the label and folding carton sectors. The imager comes as standard with resolutions of 2,400 dpi and 2,540 dpi and there is the option to have 4,000 dpi, 4,800 dpi or even 5,080 dpi, which allows extremely fine quality print with excellent detail. By selecting the most suitable resolution users can tailor plate output precisely to the work being produced and ThermoFlexX offers the widest choice of resolutions on the market amongst flexo imagers.
There are six imagers within the ThermoFlexX series, ranging from the 508 mm x 420 mm model designed for tags and label applications, to the recently launched 1,270 mm x 2,032 mm ThermoFlexX 80 for the flexible/corrugated packaging and folding carton sectors. Several features are common to all models, including the superb build quality, ease of use and resolution options.
