Mark-Maker Co., Inc. of Wyoming, Michigan, has installed a Xeikon ThermoFlexX® 80 S imager to serve the high standards of its flexo printing customers. After hearing about the Flint Group / Xeikon acquisition, Mark-Maker’s decision was further reinforced. As a long-time, Flint Group nyloflex® plate customer, the company had already grown to trust and rely on the Flint Group’s technical expertise and support.
The company intends to use its new, high-tech imager to offer more to its existing customers through enhanced prepress and plates, and to produce finished plates for packaging printers throughout the U.S. “The packaging industry as a whole is demanding print with ever-increasing line screens, smoother vignettes and deeper solids, so it was important for Mark-Maker to find a solution with the flexibility to not only meet the current market needs, but also position the company well for the future of print,” remarks Chuck Bobeldyk, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Mark-Maker Company.
Greg Price, Art Director of Mark-Maker Company, states “The 5080 dpi resolution allows us to offer superb highlights with a smooth transition to 0% tint value, while solids and line work retain excellent detail.”
Mark-Maker Company serves the web and sheet fed packaging industry with prepress solutions and design, liquid and sheet photopolymer plates, and flat and rotary steel rule dies primarily for the corrugated, folding carton, narrow to wide web and foam/gasket industries.
