Fujifilm Introduces New High Performance PDW4260 Flexo Water-Wash Processor For The Flexible Packaging And Repro House Market At Interpack 2023

Fujifilm Europe today announces that it has expanded its line-up of intelligent flexo water-wash processors with the introduction of the new PDW4260 designed for the demands of the flexible packaging and repro house market. The new processor offers the ideal solution for medium to large flexographic businesses looking to bring plate making in-house and repro houses looking to increase productivity as well as move to a more sustainable and efficient plate making process.  

The auto-feed design of the new PDW4260 processor delivers easy access for mounting and washing Flenex FW plates, and its built-in air knife and spray bars offer efficient cleaning and pre-drying. When used in conjunction with Fujifilm’s renowned and trusted Flenex FW water-washable plates, the new processor offers the industry’s fastest total plate-making times.

The high quality design of the PDW4260 processor ensures consistent, reliable performance even in the most demanding environments.  Its robust filtration system and best-in-class waste water capabilities further enhance production efficiencies by reducing downtime between cleanings, keeping consumable costs to a minimum as well as reducing its environmental impact. In addition, its back and forth orbital rotation achieves excellent relief washout, resulting in clean dot reproduction for high definition printed output.

Manuel Schrutt, Head of Packaging, EMEA says:

At Fujifilm, we are constantly looking at technologies that will not only enhance productivity for our customers, but also deliver on sustainability. Our new PDW4260 processor and Flenex FW plates utilise the highest quality sustainable water-wash technology, eliminating the use of environmentally harmful solvents. And, being more durable than most alternatives, fewer plate changes are required and less waste generated, speeding up throughput, and allowing for more sustainable and cost-efficient productivity while consistently producing the highest quality output.

The PDW4260 processor is one of a number of new Fujifilm product announcements at interpack 2023, which in combination clearly demonstrate Fujifilm’s ongoing commitment to developing a range of productivity-enhancing and sustainable analogue and digital solutions capable of addressing the ever growing demands of all sectors of the packaging market.
