Anderson & Vreeland has been appointed by Belgium-based Xeikon NV as a distributor of ThermoFlexX imagers that are designed for flexography and letterpress platemaking.
ThermoFlexX models are available in a range of sizes designed for tag, label, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated packaging. The imaging technology allows users to produce digital plates at resolutions from 2,540 to 5,080 dpi.
According to Anderson & Vreeland, benefits of the ThermoFlexX design include ergonomic plate mounting, a hybrid drum (with vacuum or magnetics); a clamping design to mount plates directly to the drum; and uniquely designed vacuum sliders that offer the flexibility to use plates of any width.
“A&V’s strong sales and service organization in the United States and Canada, combined with its extensive knowledge of flexographic printing, are important strengths that will help expand our business in North America,” stated Rick Mix, Xeikon’s Channel Manager for ThermoFlexX solutions in North America.
