Leading Chinese platemaker, Sinwa Printech, has recently integrated a ThermoFlexX Catena-WDLS washer, dryer, light finisher, and stacker unit from XSYS into its operations. This investment aims to elevate the level of automation within the trade shop’s workflow and enhance the quality of its flexo plates.
Sinwa was the first trade shop in China to introduce CDI plate imager technology. In 2015, it took another step forward with the installation of a state-of-the-art nyloflex® NExT Exposure from Flint Group to provide added value to its customers. This commitment to innovation has earned the company numerous awards over the years, as well as the loyalty of its printer customers in the labels and packaging industry.
Building on its well-established relationship with Flint Group (now XSYS), the latest introduction at Sinwa is a highly automated and integrated ThermoFlexX Catena-WDLS washer, dryer, light finisher, and stacker system. This technology streamlines the platemaking workflow by minimising the need for manual intervention, enabling fully optimised plate production with very low waste.
“Since the installation a few months ago, the Catena-WDLS has performed exceptionally well, providing high consistency and stability. The new system has been instrumental in simplifying our platemaking process, improving standardisation levels, raising quality consistency, and boosting overall efficiency,” stated Michael Lin, President, Sinwa.
