Xsys is pleased to announce its participation at Labelexpo Americas on 13–15 September 2022. The show gears up to make a welcome return to the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. Appearing on Stand 929, Hall A, in collaboration with our North American distributor partner Anderson & Vreeland, Xsys will highlight its latest flexo print production innovations.

“At Labelexpo, we will be focusing our attention on just how our best-in-class solutions can allow converters to be brilliant, deliver for their customers and stay competitive through these challenging times,” said Dan Rosen, sales director of National Accounts, North America. “It will be absolutely fantastic to meet the industry again at the show, which is one of those key events that we all look forward to. I always come away with a lot of energy after face-to-face interaction with our customers, and I know the rest of the team feels the same way.”

The nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processing System will take center stage in the Stand to demonstrate how plate makers can achieve better and more consistent quality, faster production and easier handling of flexo plates. With plates ready in less than one hour, the system can help reduce press downtime to meet brand owners’ demands for a faster time to market. There are also significant sustainability benefits with thermal plates; for instance, nyloflex Xpress cuts down dramatically on energy usage, reducing costs by as much as 94% compared to solvent processing.

Xsys is the only supplier to manufacture all its plates, imagers and processors as well as sleeves and adapters in-house, giving the company full control of the whole production process and the ability to deliver more coherent service and support. As number 1 or 2 in most of the segments its serves, Xsys has the widest portfolio of products and brands, which includes nyloflex solvent and nyloflex Xpress thermal plates and equipment, nyloprint letterpress plates and equipment, nylosolv washout solvent, rotec sleeves and adapters, ThermoFlexX TfxX Imagers, ThermoFlexX Catena Plate Processing equipment, and Woodpecker surface screening solutions.

Before the show, the North American team spoke about its commitment to the label and packaging industry and how the separation from Flint Group has sharpened its focus. “As Xsys, we are a stronger and more focused unit that can respond quickly to our customers and any market changes,” said managing director for Plates, Eric Gibbs. “We can also guarantee that our plates and equipment will work seamlessly throughout your prepress process and in the pressroom, simply because we design, engineer and manufacture all our own plates, sleeves, adapters and platemaking equipment. That is a unique offering in the market, which our customers benefit enormously.”

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.
