Heaford FTS 500 plate mounter exceeds expectations

Grupo Flexografico, a leading Mexican company known for its expertise in the flexographic printing industry and a reputation for delivering high-quality printing solutions and exceptional customer service, recently purchased a Heaford FTS 500 plate mounter.

As part of the negotiation, we showcased it at Labelexpo Mexico with several options as well as a sleeve exchange unit, this enables Grupo Flexografico the ability to mount both cylinders and sleeves on the FTS 500. Demonstrating the FTS at Label Expo Mexico to so many visitors was great and Grupo Flexografico were delighted to have the opportunity to see their machine in action prior to installation. The FTS exceeded their expectations and they quickly realised the benefits this machine would bring.

Nick Vindel, international sales manager, added “We were able to demonstrate the FTS 500 including many included options like pivoting tape applicator and rotary cutter for Grupo Flexografico and many other visitors at Label Expo Mexico. We also demonstrated the sleeve exchange unit to show just how fast it is to change a job from a Mark Andy cylinder press to a Nilpeter sleeve press and demonstrate in real time multiple mounts with speed and precision. It is very rewarding seeing the customer highly satisfied at his purchase and at the same time for us to be able to demonstrate the FTS capabilities to the many production managers that visited our stand.”

After the event, Fernando personally delivered the FTS, where it is now installed and servicing multiple cylinder and sleeve based presses with fast, easy to use and accurate mounting. We are delighted to share that Juan Carlos expresses his utmost satisfaction with the plate mounter.
