nyloflex® Plate Making Equipment

nyloflex® plate making and processing equipment are combination or single units, comprising exposure, washer, light finisher, dryer and cutting table. Flint Group offers all you need to make a print-ready flexo printing form – flat or round – solvent or water or thermal:

nyloflex® equipment and ThermoFlexX are proven in combination with nyloflex® photopolymer plates & sleeves. nyloflex® plates can be used with all laser systems suitable for imaging flexo printing plates.

Exposure, Washer, Dryer, Light Finisher

nyloflex® equipment for solvent processing of flexo plates is available in different sizes for different plate formats. It is available for narrow web, mid web and wide web application. The smallest unit is labeld with FII with a maximal plate format of 810 x 660 mm (31.9″ x 26.0″) and the largest units are the FV units with a maximal plate format of 1320 x 2032 mm (52″ x 80″).

Thermal Processing Equipment

For processing of thermal nyloflex® plates Flint Group Flexographic Products offers the nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processor. It compares innovative machine design with premium technology, manufactured in the US.

But the nyloflex® Xpress Thermal Processing System is a more than just a processor. It is a programme that is simple, clear and transparent. More about the whole nyloflex® Xpress system.

nyloflex® NExT Equipment

nyloflex® NExT Exposure units are high-performance exposure units for precise image reproduction and the highest print quality with excellent ink laydown. High-intensity UV-A LEDs (>800 mW/cm²) and a constant output results in highest long-term repeatability. It requires no additional processing steps or consumables (no lamination, no film, no inert gas), thus avoiding additional risks and extra costs. The nyloflex® NExT Exposure is available in different sizes. In addition there are suitable washer, dryer and light finisher available.

For processing high quality photopolymer plates up to a maximum size of 1200 x 920 mm (47.2″ x 36.2″)

  • Innovative combination of latest generation of UV-A LEDs with high output UV-A tubes
  • High-intensity UV-A LEDs (>800 mW/cm²) for highest productivity
  • Low dot gain tolerances ensure stable print quality due to low impression sensitivity of Flat Top Dots
  • Constant output of UV-A LEDs results in highest long-term repeatability, especially for rework
  • Easy implementation into existing digital workflow
  • Requires no additional processing steps or consumables (no lamination, no film, no inert gas), thus avoiding additional risks and extra costs
  • Compatible with all standard prepress software and HD Flexo
  • Flexible solution – typical digital dots (round top) can be achieved by the use of the UV-A tubes only
  • Suitable for all standard digital plates – any type, format and thickness

Perfect in combination with the premium quality Flint Group systems for drying and light finishing of photopolymer printing plates: nyloflex® Dryer F III and nyloflex® Light Finisher F III

Automated processing line for highest productivity

Improvement of productivity and cost reductions play an increasingly important role in the printing industry – automation is one way to impact significantly on achieving these targets. Today the flexo form making process is far behind efficient automation found in other competing printing processes like offset and gravure. Working with print-ready files, offset and gravure printing forms are produced today with a high level of automation. In the competition for printing jobs, especially of big brand owners and major supermarket chains, cost control and a consistently high and increasing quality standard are the key factors.

nyloflex® Plate Inliner VB-P

Fully automated processing line

Processing line for flexo plates combines a digital round brush washer, a dryer including eight drying drawers, a unit for post exposure and light finishing (UV-A / UV-C) and a stacker with eight drawers, offering in total a capacity of more than 120 plates per day. Suitable for processing high quality photopolymer plates up to a maximum size of 1320 x 2032 mm (52.0″ x 80.0″) and from 0.7 mm to 7.0 mm plate thickness.
