Flint Group S.A. Key Developments

Flint Group Introduces New Letterpress Plate with Soft Layer

Flint Group Flexographic Products introduced the new letterpress plate, nyloprint® WF-S. The new plate stands for ‘Water-washable Film based – Soft’ and replaces the nyloprint® WF-M printing plate type from November 2015. Compared to the previous type, the new water-washable nyloprint® WF-S film-based plate has an even softer plate surface for more flexible applications. Moreover, the soft surface provides improved ink transfer resulting in optimal ink lay-down, especially on rough surfaces. The nyloprint® WF-S plate is particularly suitable for special applications such as blister pack printing but also for rotary letterpress, coating units and imprinting units. Beyond that, the new letterpress plate shows all advantages of the nyloprint® WF plate range: very efficient and fast plate processing, as the reproduction is completed within 25-35 min. Additionally, it offers a wide exposure latitude combined with high intermediate depths and very good durability for long print runs. The nyloprint® WF-S plate is available in thicknesses of 0.70, 0.80, and 0.95 mm. A digital version of the film-based plate with all the advantages of digital processing is also available on request.

Flint Group Expands Its Sheetfed Production Capacity in Russia

Flint Group is expanding its Sheetfed production and distribution network in Russia with the opening of a Low Migration ink mixing station in its Moscow facility. In Moscow, this expansion has already been completed with the installation of a low migration ink mixing station following GMP guidelines and compliant to European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA) recommendations for food packaging printing. This will enable Flint Group’s Russian entity to support its local package printing customers by optimising logistics and improving lead times. Development of the Moscow facility is yet another step in Flint Group’s strategy to grow in key markets, as well as a commitment to providing optimal performance and consistency of products to its customers worldwide.
