Digital Process (Pvt) Ltd, the Pakistani prepress specialist, has acquired a ThermoFlexX TFxX 80S imager, the third in as many years and the largest in the range, to support customers in the corrugated market in moving from analog to digital flexo plates, as the company expands with a second facility.
The company is on a journey of growth and innovation to bring its customer base the best quality in flexo plates. Over the past three years, the Karachi-based repro house has replaced all its older imagers with an impressive lineup of ThermoFlexX technology which covers the entire gamut of segments, from labels to flexible packaging and now also corrugated post-print.
While many competitors in the region are focused solely on costs, Digital Process stands out with its decision to introduce a new level of quality thanks to its resolute investment in three ThermoFlexX imagers from XSYS. The latest installation of the large ThermoFlexX TFxX 80S comes hot on the heels of a ThermoFlexX TFxX 48 bought just last year and a ThermoFlexX TFxX 60 in 2019. As such, the company can now cater to every need of its many customers, which include some of the biggest printing companies and their global brand customers across Pakistan, India, the Middle East and Africa.
Founded in 2006, Digital Process continues to lead the way in flexo platemaking in Pakistan with the latest technologies and solutions. Zain Fazal, Founder and CEO, says, “We produce over 10,000 sqm of photopolymer plate material each year and our customers expect best-in-class products and services from us. The ThermoFlexX imagers support us in being able to meet and even exceed these expectations. This robust and innovative technology has already more than proven itself in our busy working environment for our label and flexible packaging clients; we are now ready to extend this service to the corrugated market.”
With the new ThermoFlexX TFxX 80S, the repro house can offer flexo plates in sizes up to 2032 x 1270mm in thicknesses of 0.73–6.35mm. Such has been the success of the ThermoFlexX imagers that Digital Process is already planning to invest in a fourth machine as part of an expansion in the northern part of Pakistan. “We are opening a new manufacturing facility in Lahore to offer a more local service to customers there and we are very much doing this on the back of the technology and the fantastic partnership we have established with XSYS,” concluded Fazal.
