Xsys has confirmed Labelexpo Europe 2023 as a great success as the company seized the opportunity to demonstrate its wide reach in flexo pre-press and engage directly with visitors.
The show visitors were greeted by the distinctive Xsys stand, where the ThermoFlexX TFxX 30 and larger 48 model plate imagers attracted great interest.
The ThermoFlexX 48 could be seen connected to the new Catena-E 48 LED exposure unit, demonstrating how automation is changing the platemaking process.
Xsys also displayed its broad range of flexographic and letterpress plates for label and packaging production, along with the rotec portfolio of adapters and sleeves, including the Smart Premium and Smart Sleeves, Eco Xtra Ring for adapters, and associated upgrade program.
Xsys director of commercial excellence Thomas Strohe said, “It was clear that visitors were excited to be back at Labelexpo Europe after such a long break, and there was a palpable buzz, not only on the Xsys stand but throughout the halls.
“I’m very pleased to say that we welcomed people from all over the globe who were eager to learn more about Xsys’ industry-leading product offerings for label and packaging production.”
A concept label for Xsys Hot Sizzle Sauce produced specifically for the show illustrated how to optimise the capabilities of the nyloflex FTV flexo printing plate, imaged and processed on the ThermoFlexX and Catena-E equipment.
Produced by Polish label specialist Grafpol, it included QR codes for easy access to more information on the company website.
Xsys nyloflex and nylosolv product manager Florian Hölzle added, “We decided to bring a beautiful promotional label to the show to give visitors something tangible that really grabbed their attention.
“With its impactful design and strong bright colours, the label clearly demonstrated the strength of Xsys technologies and the realm of possibilities they offer to advance the quality and cost-effectiveness of flexo printing.”
Xsys was also present as a gold sponsor of the Flexo’s Future: ECG (Extended Colour Gamut) seminar, which discussed the benefits of printing with a fixed set of inks. During the workshop, Hölzle explained the role played by Xsys products and equipment in the quest to increase efficiencies and maximise sustainability in print production.
“XSYS can always be found in the middle of the action, and the 2023 edition of Labelexpo Europe was no exception. We continue to engage with other leading suppliers in collaborations devised to help printers navigate the changing market and find ways to be more brilliant than the competition,” Strohe concluded.
