Xsys will bring the latest iteration of its innovative nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processor to Fort Worth, TX, for the Infoflex exhibition on 14–15 March. Known for enabling better print quality, faster plate production, and easier handling, this industry-leading technology is now in its new generation.

“We are very excited to bring this best-in-class thermal processor to the show as a highlight that demonstrates our commitment to the flexo industry,” said Dan Rosen, Sales director of National Accounts. “We are all facing demands for higher sustainability, so it is more important than ever to maximize technologies, such as the nyloflex Xpress thermal processor system, to deliver greener production methods whilst retaining top quality.”

As part of a continuous innovation programme, Xsys has further developed the nyloflex Xpress thermal processor by streamlining the intuitive user interface, enhancing the overall material handling and improving the ease of access. With low energy usage and up to 30% less fabric in the developer rolls, the system will substantially contribute to customers’ sustainability efforts.

“The nyloflex Xpress processor really sets the bar in thermal platemaking with high print quality that easily rivals solvent plates and a reduced TCO,” said James van Buskirk, Technical director Plates NA. “Right from the first introduction, it has been a game-changer in platemaking. The new generation builds on that success with incremental improvements throughout to give our customers a competitive edge.”

In addition, the advanced remote access functionality of the Xpress processor proved its worth during the pandemic by offering near-immediate remote support from Xsys technicians. This type of feature is now expected by customers who look to their equipment suppliers for strong support and service to ensure they can keep their machines running even during the most challenging times.

“Although this is our first outing at Infoflex as Xsys, we have a long history of technology innovation that has benefitted flexo platemakers and printer for many years,” said Dan Rosen. “Just as the FTA team promises with their slogan, Xsys will be building ‘relationships and forging connections’ at this year’s Infoflex. We will do this by demonstrating how the latest Xsys solutions can accelerate productivity, lower costs and deliver sustainability benefits for our customers.”

Visitors to the Xsys booth at 415 at the Fort Worth convention centre will also be able to learn about the nyloflex portfolio of flexo plates, ThermoFlexX TFxX imagers and Catena platemaking equipment, and rotec sleeves and adapters.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
