The Power of Thermal Platemaking

Thermal plate processing is one of the most widely-used methods of processing flexo printing plates. This process has been widely accepted within the industry based on the ease of use for the platemaking operators as well as quick turn-around times for plates.

While some printers prefer the print quality that comes from processing flexo plates through a solvent processor, recent developments have allowed thermal plates to print with the quality of a solvent plate.

Within the new Flint Xpress thermal platemaking system, the process has been designed to develop the Xpress thermal plate material as quickly and efficiently as possible, while maintaining the quality level of a solvent plate.

This notion of an integrated system, and the benefits it provides, is behind the free, Anderson & Vreeland webinar on the new Flint Xpress Thermal Plate Processor. On Thursday, December 8 at 1 PM EST, Anderson & Vreeland Technology Manager Jessica Harrell will lead attendees through the new system and describe how it gives converters complete control over platemaking, raises the bar on the thermal plate quality, and reduces operating costs and maintenance requirements.

Throughout the information-packed session Jessica will explain how converters can test the system, what materials are available, review some printed samples we’ve received at Anderson & Vreeland, as well as input from customers who have already tried the new system.

Flint’s Xpress Thermal Plate Processor was rolled out for the first time in September at Labelexpo in Chicago. It drew a lot of attention there, with some converters placing orders on the spot, seeking to be the first in their markets to take advantage of end-to-end plate processing control.

Now, on Thursday, December 8 at 1 PM EST, you’ll be able to hear first hand about how this new machine is bringing new levels of efficiency to many types of converters, and why it may be a good fit for your shop.
