Become an early adopter to the new technology

Comparable plates from other brands can be significantly more expensive than Fujifilm Flenex. This really is a game changer.

The other noticeable benefit is ink transfer. Press minders have found these plates ink up significantly faster, thus saving you press time and material. They’re also exceptionally durable as they’re uniquely made with rubber, lasting longer on press.

Flenex FW – a game changer

  • Reduced dot gain
  • Better ink transfer for cleaner, brighter print results
  • Faster exposure and washout times – Late cut off for delivery next day
  • Much more durable – each plate is able to perform longer on press than comparitive plates
  • Mild washout with water and dishwasher soap – environmentally better
  • Reduced plate swell –  longer print runs and greater overall profitability

Arriving on a flat-bed truck, the teams wasted no time at unpacking the heavy crate once in position outside the building.

Situated in MPH Limited’s main building, the Flenex FW S928 semi-automatic processor took pride of place at the centre of the plate making department.

Incorporating the efforts of no less than six different UK and European organisations, MPH’s plate technicians got under way with their training as soon as the machine services had been connected and checked.

Fujifilm partner exclusively with MPH – bringing FLENEX FW plate technology to the UK

Flexographic technology news

Announced in July / August 2016 Flexotech magazine, the deal provides an opportunity for MPH partner’s to become early adopters to the latest flexo plate technology, superior than anything else currently on the market.

latest flexo plate technology

From Flexotech – Flenex FW is a water washable [flat top dot] flexo plate with a total platemaking time of fewer than 40 minutes. The plates deliver longer runs while producing a consistent 200 lpi at 4400 dpi and a 1% process dot structure.

The FW photopolymer plates contain a special rubber-based compound that offers a number of inherent advantages over other elastomeric materials from which most other flexo plates are made. In particular, rubber is not oxygen sensitive, which minimises the effect oxygen in the air has on the dot shape and the complexity of the system to eliminate oxygen from the plate production process. Advantages include reduced dot gain on the prints as well as better ink transfer for cleaner, brighter print results.

Being water washable obviously brings the benefits of being able to be cleaned with just water and dishwasher tablet, but the plate is also more durable and reduces the effects of plate swelling.

MPH director Brian Cawdron –Having seen the plate in action, and the multiple benefits it can bring to the business, we’re confident that Flenex FW will be a great fit for our customers, and we’re excited to be able to add it to our portfolio.’

‘With Flenex FW, Fujifilm has some really innovative technology which allows a flat top dot effect to be achieved very simply. This results in noticeably cleaner and brighter print results which our customers will love.’

‘We’re a fast turnaround business, and our customers know and respect us for this, so we’re always interested in products that are going to help us to continue to deliver what our customers need, when they need it. Also important to us was the reduced environmental impact – even when compared with other water washable plates, as Flenex washes clean in simple dishwashing detergent.’

James Whitehead, product manager at Fujifilm UK – ‘The plates contain a special rubber-based compound that offers a number of significant advantages over materials used in rival flexo plates.’

‘Crucially, as this compound is not oxygen sensitive, the effect of oxygen in the air on the dot shape is kept to an absolute minimum, meaning printers can achieve a 1% flat top dot without costly and complex oxygen elimination processes. This results in lower dot gain, while the superior ink transfer produces results of noticeably higher quality.’

‘After a hugely successful drupa 2016 for Flenex FW, we’re delighted that such a respected name in the UK reprographic market has opted to become the UK trailblazer for this proven technology solution. We look forward to a long a successful partnership, from which MPH’s many customers will be the ultimate beneficiaries’.
