Xsys has launched Flexo Solution Finder, a new innovative online tool that helps printers and platemakers find solutions to help them optimize production and increase Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) in the prepress department and the pressroom. Tailored to each market segment, Flexo Solution Finder will guide users to the optimal printing plate or combination of plate, equipment, and surface screening software, from the comprehensive Xsys portfolio.

“At Xsys, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in all areas of flexo printing for labels and packaging production. With Flexo Solution Finder, we want to openly share all this information with our customers to make their life easier and their operations more profitable,” said Simon Top, the company’s product manager. “Each market segment has its own challenges, and we have developed solutions to deal more efficiently with these. By visiting the website, users can find the best matching printing plate, a combination of plate, equipment, and software, or advice for their specific problem in just a few clicks.”  

The tool guides users through a series of simple steps. First, they choose their active segment(s) – flexible packaging, tag and label, corrugated pre-print or corrugated post-print, before identifying themselves as a printer (with or without in-house platemaking) or as a repro house/trade shop. Once that has been established, the next step is to choose the ink type and then the substrate before homing in on the specific area of concern, whether it is cost, print quality, productivity, or sustainability (including health and safety).

Xsys’ Flexo Solution Finder can address real-life challenges

Customers can find the answer to a plethora of problems, such as how to avoid plate swelling, ink filling and trail edge void, reduce press downtime or avoid waste caused by dirty highlight dots, minimize complexity in the process overall, improve sustainability by eliminating solvents, lower ink and plate waste, improve productivity and efficiency, and much more. If the issue requires more in-depth analysis, individual technical questions can also be submitted directly to Xsys through the Flexo Solution Finder.

“Flexo Solution Finder was developed as part of our strategy to offer open and flexible solutions that allow customers to differentiate themselves cost-effectively. It addresses the real-life challenges faced by our customers in the packaging industry every day and allows them to find the perfect Xsys product or product combination to solve their problems,” explained Simon Top.

Simon concluded, “We already know from the popularity of the Xsys Product Selector that customers appreciate the immediate access online tools can provide. Flexo Solution Finder is the next logical step as Xsys endeavors to bring flexo out of the dark shadows of the past and into the bright lights of the future. And it is another great example of how Xsys supports customers to achieve brilliant results.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
