XSYS recently held two customer events in Germany. Designed to inform, engage, and anticipate, the annual flexo roundtables (Flexostammtisch) were first established in 2003.
With one ‘Flexostammtisch’ held in the north and one in the south of the country, the events brought together the flexo industry, providing a platform for engaging discussions and knowledge-sharing.
Taking place in Memmingen (Bavaria), ‘Flexostammtisch Süd’ gathered over 40 print professionals, who were welcomed by Markus Mühlfeit, Regional Sales Manager DE/CH. Its northern equivalent, ‘Flexostammtisch Nord’ held in Damme (Lower Saxony), saw more than 60 attendees greeted by Burkhard Gerken, Regional Technical Sales Manager DE. Both delivered an interesting program of presentations on topical issues, such as sustainability and cost-efficiency in flexo platemaking.
Florian Hölzle, Product Manager nyloflex® at XSYS Germany GmbH, gave a compelling talk on optimising printing with white ink on filmic substrates and corrugated board. After introducing the fully automatic ThermoFlexX Catena+ platemaking line, he went on to outline the benefits of ThermoFlexX Woodpecker surface screening technology. In particular, he discussed the cost-saving potential and improved print quality offered by the recently launched Woodpecker Nevis micro-pattern for white.
The days ended with a networking dinner, giving participants ample opportunity to further discuss these important topics and the interesting findings from the industry project.
