Flint Group has reported that it will be exhibiting a wide range of solutions for labels and packaging at Labelexpo Europe. Combining industry strengths, four of its divisions (Flexographic Products, Narrow Web, Digital Solutions Xeikon and ThermoFlexX) will showcase solutions that enable label printers and converters to better position themselves to address emerging market realities. Flint Group will be located in Hall five on stands 5C25-28.

“Flint Group is a one-stop shop for label converters and during Labelexpo Europe we want to demonstrate that whilst all at one booth for the first time,” comments Antoine Fady, CEO Flint Group. “This ranges from prepress and pre-production, through digital print and embellishments, converting and delivery. And we are excited to be bringing some new products to the show. As always, our teams of narrow web, flexographic products and digital print experts will be on hand to learn more about the business needs of visitors to our stand, providing them with relevant information about how we can help.”

With a product line ranging from nyloflex printing plates and equipment, rotec sleeves and adapters, Flint Group Flexographic Products will showcase its comprehensive technology for the printing industry. New at the show will be the nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processing System, with a smarter design that is easier to use. It delivers thermal platemaking with no compromise in quality. “This is thermal like you’ve never seen before. We believe our new, integrated solution, is in a class of its own. We achieved this result by looking at the thermal process holistically. By combining the best in equipment design, plate development and engineered fabric, Flint Group is offering a system which leads to reduced costs, improved quality and improved sustainability.” says Friedrich von Rechteren, VP sales EMEA and global marketing.

For the event Flint Group Narrow Web will demonstrate their range of food packaging compliant printing inks for all major printing technologies: UV Mercury Flexo, UV LED Flexo, Water Based Flexo and UV and EB Offset. The company will present their latest innovations in Low Migration with a special focus on the award winning and ground-breaking UV LED low migration technology, EkoCure ANCORA.

“Low Migration LED curable inks and printing systems open up opportunities for expansion into food packaging that did not exist before,” stated Kelly Kolliopoulos, global marketing director, Flint Group Narrow Web. “Narrow Web Customers can now print on heat sensitive films because the LED systems operate at much lower temperatures, and additionally they can meet food packaging compliance because of Flint Group’s novel low migration ink chemistry. We look forward to sharing with our customers”

Xeikon will be displaying its newly launched Panther technology, a UV inkjet platform that complements Xeikon’s dry toner technology, and is one of the first UV inkjet presses to be based on this technology, the Xeikon PX3000. The new press was developed in response to the growing need for new technologies in digital label printing, to drive new applications and to produce them in the most efficient way. The primary application focus for the Xeikon PX3000, which prints at a resolution of 600dpi, is self-adhesive health and beauty and industrial labels, with dry toner being the preferred technology for applications where food safety is a requirement.
