XSYS has launched Flexo Solution Finder, a new online tool that helps printers and platemakers find solutions to help them optimize production and increase Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) in the prepress department and in the press room.
Tailored to each market segment, Flexo Solution Finder will reportedly guide users to the optimal printing plate or combination of plate, equipment, and surface screening software, from the comprehensive XSYS portfolio.
The tool guides users through a series of simple steps. First, they choose their active segment(s): flexible packaging, tag & label, corrugated pre-print or corrugated post-print, before identifying themselves as a printer (with or without in-house platemaking) or as a repro house/trade shop.
Once that has been established, the next step is to choose the ink type and then the substrate, before homing in on the specific area of concern, whether it is costs, print quality, productivity, or sustainability (including health & safety).
Customers can find the answer to a plethora of problems, such as how to avoid plate swelling, ink filling and trail edge void; reduce press downtime or avoid waste caused by dirty highlight dots; minimize complexity in the process overall; improve sustainability by eliminating solvents; lower ink and plate waste; improve productivity and efficiency, and much more.
If the issue requires more in-depth analysis, individual technical questions can also be submitted directly to XSYS via the Flexo Solution Finder.
