ThermoFlexx, which is part of Xeikon, has completely redesigned its ThermoFlexX 60 digital flexo plate imager, claiming that it’s the most advanced 1,067 x 1,524 mm flexo imager on the market.
It borrows heavily from the larger ThermoFlexX 80, with the ability to fit a dual-head imaging system, which enables output speeds of 12 sq metres an hour at 2,400 dpi, making these two models the fastest flexo imagers in the world.
There’s a newly designed optical system with improved imaging quality, while the maximum resolution of 5,080 dpi is the highest on the market, allowing the production of halftone screens of 250 lpi, which is suitable for intricate, high quality work. The ThermoFlexX 60 will automatically select the correct resolution depending upon the job being sent by the workflow and alter the optics accordingly.
It’s highly automated, including an automatic calibration system that guarantees jobs are always imaged under optimum conditions, to the ability for the operator to load and unload plates at the touch of a button. There’s an automatic clamping system, combined with the slow drum rotation feature, that ensures that plate mounting is straightforward and accurate. The hybrid drum enables plates to be held by either vacuum or magnets and can handle standard polymer flexo plates or steel-backed letterpress plates.
Christophe Lievens, director sales and marketing for basysPrint and ThermoFlexX, commented: “In addition to advancements in technology, we have established a growing network of global dealers and distributors while our customer base has expanded considerably.”
