Esko Launches Flexo Technology Center In North America Ghent, Belgium based Esko, a global supplier of integrat- ed hardware and software solutions for the print and pack- aging sectors, has launched a new state-of-the-art Flexo Technology Center at its North American headquarters in Miamisburg, Ohio. The technology focused center features end-to-end Esko solutions for packaging prepress and printing, from its CDI Crystal XPS 4835 imager and exposure unit to the Kongsberg X24 Edge for plate cutting. The comprehensive workflow demonstration also includes all the latest Esko prepress innovations and the complete updated suite of software products. Customers are now able to book a visit to the center and experience – either in person or virtually – demonstrations of Esko flexo solutions first-hand, inter- acting with Esko experts. “This new center enables us to continue to invest in our customer relationships and reaffirms our commitment to seamless connectivity and automation of the packaging prepress and production process,” said Melissa Plemen, Esko Sr. Director of Inside Sales and Marketing. “With this level of integration and collaboration, we are demonstrat- ing how customers can use digital transformation to drive agility, efficiency and maintain a competitive advantage. “The center is an ideal base for us to support our North American customers and offer them direct and profes- sional advice from our experts. The exciting new space enables the Esko team to showcase the latest flexo plate making and prepress technologies, either in person at the facility or virtually. “Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we hosted the opening event virtually, which allowed us to extend our expertise and demonstrate our capabilities to a much broader audience spanning across the country and inter- nationally.” The centerpiece of the Flexo Technology Center is the new CDI Crystal XPS 4835, which combines the CDI Crys- tal and XPS LED exposure system into a completely auto- mated solution. The launch of the new Esko Flexo Technology Center follows the recent release of Esko WebCenter 20.0, the next generation of the company’s powerful and secure web-based packaging management and collaboration platform. For more on WebCenter 20.0 and the latest Esko innovations, visit the new Esko Innovation Hub which has been designed to provide users with a unique insight to the Esko Software 20 portfolio of innovations in a virtual environment. There, users can navigate around the latest integrated hardware and software solutions from Esko, in their own time, accessing insights and technical informa- tion, as well as learn new ways to boost business produc- tivity, efficiency and profitability.
