Since Xeikon Prepress, as part of Xeikon, joined Flint Group in 2015, the two divisions combined forces to develop automated imaging devices and invested further into mutual R&D projects. Woodpecker Nano, a technology to create surface microstructures, was launched in April in 2019 as a technological collaboration between Xeikon Prepress and Flint Group’s Flexographic division.

After joining the Flint Group family, we suddenly were in the position of having the expertise of one of the leading plate manufacturers combined with our own vast experience of imaging systems, in-house, which is unseen in our industry. As we have optimized ThermoFlexX imagers and developed Woodpecker Nano surface screening, we are now going for the next level to integrate and combine these with new innovations,” said Uwe Stebani, general manager of Xeikon Prepress.

We are sure that industry experts will be excited to learn about our new, integrated plate imaging solutions at Labelexpo Brussels. It will be a perfect opportunity to announce our vision of quality enhancement in flexo plate-making,” added Christophe Lievens, sales director at Xeikon Prepress.

Xeikon Prepress and Flexographic division of Flint Group with their brands ThermoFlexX and Nyloflex focused on efficiency in the packaging prepress value chain, with the objective to introduce an integrated imaging system, producing quality flexographic printing plates while increasing productivity in the prepress room. “Our respective know-how in imaging devices, surface screening and photopolymer flexo plates enabled us to introduce innovative solutions for the packaging prepress industry. Our aim is to create value for our customers and deliver solutions that are better, faster, easier to use,” said Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial vice president of Flexographic division, Flint Group.

Xeikon Prepress launched a new and integrated prepress solution for digital flexo plates. Flint Group Packaging announced its latest innovation during Labelexpo 2019 and invited the trade media to their press conference on 25 September 2019 at 7:45 a.m.
