Numex adds another CDI Spark 4260 with Kongsberg flexo plate cutting

Continued high investment in flexography in India

Numex adds another CDI Spark 4260 to its fleet of flexo digital imaging output devices.

Esko customer Numex, a leading flexo prepress business based in Mumbai, has further differentiated itself by adding another CDI Spark 4260 to its battery of flexo digital imaging output devices. In addition, Numex has put in a Kongsberg cutting table for precisely cutting flexo plates. All the prepress work and digital output devices at Numex are driven by Esko’s Digital Flexo Suite.

Numex specializes in the production of flexo plates for flexible packaging and label presses whose customers include consumer product companies and converters in the food and beverage industries as well as other product segments. Since its founding more than 25 years ago, Numex has always invested in the latest technology in order to provide its customers with the highest quality plates.

“Esko has been a key Numex partner for decades,” says Numex owner Nitin Patil, “We already have two CDI large size imagers, the 5080 Cantilever and 4260 Spark respectively, as well as the entire state-of-the-art prepress software solution from Esko (including PackEdge, Plato, DeskPack, Studio, Automation Engine and Imaging Engine). This end-to-end, highly automated workflow has allowed us to provide exceptional customer service and differentiate ourselves in the marketplace with high and reliable quality. Now, with our new CDI Spark 4260 with Kongsberg X22 plate cutting solution along with Digital Flexo Suite, we are taking quality and customer service to yet a higher level.”

“In addition to the automation and increased capacity achieved, with the new Flat Top plate by nature in LAMS digital plate, the CDI Spark 4260 flexo plate production system highly reduces the complexity in the plate room. The Esko CDI Spark 4260, on top of producing the perfect plate for all flexo print applications, also gives us the option of securely holding flexo plates of different thicknesses with the help of pneumatic easy clamp system on the drum,” adds Patil.

“Our long-time business relationship with Numex has been valuable to both parties,” comments Arnab Maiti, country manager – South Asia of Esko. “We are delighted they again trusted Esko to implement the CDI Spark 4260 along with the Kongsberg X22 plate cutting flexo plate production solution, making their company a showcase of the benefits of an end-to-end Esko workflow.”
