HD Flexo for outstanding flexo print quality
Automate and integrate to cut costs
Digital Flexo Suite automates and improves various plate preparation activities in the flexo plate room and reduces plate waste by at least 15%. This high level of integration and automation serves the needs of an industry that is challenged to produce packaging cheaper, faster, better and greener.
Each partner workflow will have its own settings and screens in order to obtain the best result. Pixel+ is an Esko product, workflow support will be delivered by each respective plate manufacturer.
Esko CDI combines digital main and back exposure in one device
The digital UV back exposure completes Esko’s concept of a fully digital UV curing environment. The curing is achieved through digital UV diodes similar to the existing Inline UV technology.
It is known that the “floor height” has an essential influence on the flexo print quality. Today’s conventional UV-frames cope with UV output fluctuation. By digitizing back exposure, Esko brings a fully controlled exposure process. The technology delivers consistent and predictable floor height which results in a notable increase in print quality and stability.
World premiere preview of next generation flexo plate imaging technology
The result will be a superior flexo plate suitable for the highlight ànd the shadow or solid areas of a print job. “We want to go beyond the binary discussion of flat top dots or round top dots, and create the best possible combination of print dot structures on a single plate. At drupa, we will show imaged plates and printed samples to illustrate this technological breakthrough. For every flexible packaging professional this is an absolute “must-see” at drupa 2012.” states Andresen.
