SGK Schawk!, Belgium – Invest in ThermoFlexX

30 September 2020

Doug Mawdsley – 24/09/2020

This leading flexo plate maker based in Antwerp has chosen a ThermoFlexX 80D imager. The busy and diverse operation has decided to push ahead with investment plans in-spite of Covid-19, to be fully prepared to serve their customers’ needs in the future.

SGK Schawk! chose ThermoFlexX largely for its suitability for their business. The system serves admirably as both a high-speed productive ‘work-horse’ and a high-resolution, high-quality plate imager. Automatic resolution switching, allowing combining image resolutions on one plate, further provides the flexibility required. Future proofing of the ThermoFlexX is greatly enhanced with the possibility to add Catena processing equipment; LED exposure, washer, dryer and light-finisher.

SGK Schawk! was comfortable to work with Xeikon Prepress as they found a company with many years of experience in the design and manufacture of CTP’s in the print industry, yet an organisation retaining an ‘open mind’ approach. Positive references from other parts of the group also helped.
