Flint Group – First Nyloflex Xpress thermal processing system in China

PRC • The German company Flint Group Flexographic installed its first nyloflex Xpress thermal processing system in China. At the end of April 2018, the first unit of nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processor was successfully installed at KECAI (Beijing) Technology Co. Ltd., China.

According to the company, the nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processor incorporates the speed of thermal plate making with a high plate and print quality and offers a design with an enhanced user interface. The characteristics of the processor provides unprecedented control and allows for more consistent and stable plate production encompassing “Thermal like you’ve never seen before.”


Guan Heng, the director of KECAI, has been looking for solutions, and finally decided for nyloflex because of the following features:

  • The configuration of the nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processor allows few components which leads to less maintenance, less downtime and lower operating costs
  • Specially developed nyloflex thermal printing plates in combination with the heating system that ensures high plate and print quality
  • Engineered fabric of the nyloflex developer rolls is designed to be highly efficient and environmentally friendly

KECAI is a newly established trade shop, who provides high-level processed flexo plates for advanced packaging printing, not limited to printing applications of labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and paper cups.

Magenta Zheng, General Manager of FGFP China adds: “The nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processing System doesn’t scarify any quality and advantages from the solvent process system. It will overturn the Chinese conclusion that thermal processed plates cannot match the printing performance derived from solvent processed ones. It will become one of the main plate processing applications soon.”
