The heart of our company is oriented towards the realization of high-quality flexographic printing machinery. The result is a product conceived and designed entirely in Italy.
At Flexofem, we build different types of machinery, trying to create every type of printing press according to customer needs, based on a tailor-made construction process.
Having the ability to make such different products immediately has brought us face to face with the problem of how to manage all production processes in the best way without affecting the efficiency of the process. We have therefore planned a diversified production depending on the type of press to be delivered to the customer, although starting from a design carried out entirely in Italy for all products.
We can therefore say that our machines are entirely conceived, designed and engineered in Italy drawing on the know-how acquired over many years in this specific sector.
Two kinds of production for flexographic printing machinery
Flexofem can offer various types of flexographic printing presses. This capacity has led us to differentiate production according to the complexity of the equipment.
Some critical parts of our printing machine and some special items, along with our “Equipment” (<- link to Equipment section), are entirely projected, designed and manufactured in Italy. Our products are conceived in a modular way which allows us to be extremely fast even in the installation phase.
For the type of central drum printing press, the most important parts of the machine, such as the printing unit, are constructed in Italy, while the remaining parts are assembled in the factory of our partner DongHang, which has been one of the main Chinese companies in the printing machine field for the last 30 years.
Offering the customer a product that was entirely the result of a design made in Italy is our priority. With this, the customer is aware that every request, every need is acknowledged and designed by Flexofem, and only later assembled in China.
From the request to the production of a flexographic printing press
When the customer gets in touch with Flexofem, he has already an idea of what could be a machine that meets his needs, but to refine the request he is supported by our design office. From here begins the ideation phase of the new machine in a continuous dialogue between the various players which is the constant for Flexofem in the production process of flexographic printing machines.
After the customer has been supported and helped in the search for the best necessities to be met, the project is finally defined.
The phase that starts here can be different depending on the type of technology required, but regardless if the production takes place in Italy or in China, an essential component of company management cannot be missing, communication.
In fact, the implementation phase sees a constant dialogue between the various offices through real-time communication, which allows the two parties to remain constantly updated. An expedient that saves us useful time which adds up in the entire construction process.
Our partner in China
In China there are therefore both the offices and the production site of our machinery.
The partnership we have decided to form with DongHang allows us to produce the machinery at more advantageous costs in order to have less impact on the final price for the customer. But the added benefit of this operation lies in the extremely high specialization of this company, currently considered one of the most important companies in China as regards this type of machinery.
China: a choice to optimize the production process
In a world that is moving faster and faster, it is good to break down the stereotypes that pervade our country.
In recent years, Chinese technological progress has revolutionized the world and has finally brought China among the great powers capable of generating not only large volumes of sales but above all associating them with first-class quality.
Today globalization and digitalization has made it possible to shorten the distances between the Far East and the Old Continent, allowing many Chinese people to train, study, and implement best practices capable of generating excellence in every production site in the world.
We strongly believe in the value of continuous training and the cross-over of ideas, skills and experience, we believe therefore that only by building a relationship of this type can we aim to offer a product of the highest quality.
Production of flexographic printing machinery: we believe in Open innovation
Crossing over and sharing know-how is possible today even if we talk about production between two companies that are 10,000 km apart and allows us, as a company, to rely on a lean and dynamic structure that manages to face the challenges of the business better than how we have done in the past.
We are happy to live in a historical period in which the digital switch allows us to collaborate with an engineer in China as if he were in the next room, to speak in real time and collaborate to find innovative solutions and generating new possibilities that were unthinkable until a few years ago. .
In the production process of flexographic printing machinery, this synergy is fundamental and allows rapid growth on both sides. In fact, Italian engineers and Chinese managers currently use the possibilities offered by digital technologies to communicate every day, to always have control of the progress of orders.
To further optimize this process, we will shortly activate a section of our online platform for the Chinese production division in order to transform our website into a real multi-sided platform that allows all players to find all the information in one single place.
