First certified pre-press facility in Chicago area
Flint Group has certified Denmark’s Reproflex Scandinavia under its FlexoExpert program, which offers customers further education on the standardization of the flexo platemaking process.
Reproflex Scandinavia produces data, design and digital printing plates for the packaging industry, with business in almost all areas of the graphic process, including pre-press for flexo, offset and gravure.
Flint Group first introduced the program in April 2016. During a six-month process consisting of three main steps – evaluation and training, implementation, and audit – the FlexoExpert certification program provides the means by which plate makers can further optimize their work flow processes to make more reliable and consistent plates time and again. With the guidance of a Flint Group expert, Reproflex Scandinavia implemented the program and passed the final audit to earn the honor of FlexoExpert certification of its platemaking process, and in doing so became the first company in the Nordic region to achieve this certification. In addition, the company has developed a detailed log system giving full documentation and traceability.
‘Reproflex Scandinavia has joined the program to optimize and standardize production,’ explained Soren Lund, technical manager at Reproflex Scandinavia. ‘Our customers can rely on consistently high quality flexo plates.’
