Flint Group Flexographic Products Introduces nyloflex FAM Digital Plates


To complement its full range of flexographic printing plates, Flint Group Flexographic Products introduces a new digital photopolymer printing plate, nyloflex FAM Digital, developed especially for wide web flexible packaging printing with solvent based inks. The medium hard digital plate prints exceptionally well on a wide variety of both absorbent and non-absorbent substrates, ranging from textured to very smooth surfaces.  Due to its unique flexibility, nyloflex FAM Digital plates require a lower impression setting, resulting in sharper print results and lower dot gain as compared to traditional plates on the market of the same durometer range.  nyloflex FAM Digital plates produce excellent print results in combination printing, as well as fine process detail.  The new plates exhibit a long run life, without the need for frequent cleaning on press. nyloflex FAM Digital plates are currently offered in .045” and .067” thicknesses and are available in North America.
