Numex installs CDI Advance Cantilever 1450 with HD Flexo from Esko

Equipped with the advanced digital flexo imaging solutions in the market, Mumbai-based Numex Blocks will now be able to provide flexo printers across India the high quality level that was originally only achievable in offset or gravure. The company has recently installed Esko CDI Advance Cantilever 1450 with HD Flexo technology, which is the first installation of this product in South Asia. With the capability of the CDI Cantilever to image both plates and sleeves, Numex Blocks is gearing up for the requirements of tomorrow’s flexo market.

“India is an emerging market for packaging print and we notice a significant growth in the quality of flexo printing as it has to meet gravure and offset standards. Numex was the first to set the trend in 2002 by moving from analog to digital and has continuously invested in the latest technologies ever since. When looking for their next technology investment, Numex of course had several options to choose from. We are delighted that they considered the Esko CDI as the best platform to address the demanding quality requirements of the Indian market,” conveys Hoshi Deboo, VP Asia Pacific & Japan at Esko.

Founded in 1985, Mumbai-based Numex Blocks is a well-established Indian prepress trade shop specialized in flexo and letterpress plate production for the flexible packaging, labels and corrugated markets across India. Over the years, Numex Blocks also continuously upgraded its workflow software and works today with Esko’s Suite 10 preproduction software. The company is also looking forward to the new Suite 12 that Esko will be launching at drupa 2012 in May.

“We have a long standing partnership with Esko that spans back over 10 years. All through this time our experience with Esko has been excellent. Now that we need to add more capacity and meet the demand for higher quality, we didn’t look anywhere else. Their solutions are the de facto standard in today’s flexo world,” commented Nitin Patil, director of Numex Blocks.
