Dupont Packaging Graphics to features new flexographic plate and equipment technologies at Labelexpo India

DuPont Packaging Graphics (DuPont) (stall B52) is highlighting new flexographic plate and equipment technologies for the tag and label market Labelexpo India 2014. Shown for the first time at Labelexpo India, these new featured products include the DuPont Cyrel FAST DFUV plate, the DuPont Cyrel FAST 1001 TD processor and the DigiFlow 1000 EcLF exposure-unit, all designed to deliver quality, productivity and sustainability benefits to tag and label printers.

The new Cyrel FAST DFUV flexographic printing plate is designed specifically for the narrow web printer who needs a high-performance plate for use with ultraviolet (UV) curable inks.  It is a thermal process plate that comes up to color quickly minimizing startup waste and prints smooth and dense solids, without compromising dot gain, highlights and resolutions.  This new plate can improve solid ink density, reduce waste, save time and cost in applications involving high-end substrates such as pressure sensitive and self-adhesives labels.

For narrow web printers who want a more efficient and more sustainable solvent-free processor, the new Cyrel FAST 1001 TD is a small format thermal platemaking system that has been redesigned and streamlined for improved dimensional stability and efficiency.  The Cyrel FAST 1001 TD uses a unique thermal management system and multiple roller design to improve clean-out, provide more consistent relief depth and a more uniform floor, especially with thin gauge (.045”) plates often used for tag and label applications.

For narrow web printers who want to deliver superior print quality and productivity, Cyrel DigiFlow 1000ECLF is a powerful tool to improve solid ink densities and print contrast, while maintaining the outstanding image quality typically associated with Cyrel, all within the existing digital workflow.  The Cyrel DigiFlow 1000ECLF exposure units were designed for use on an ‘as-needed’ basis, and can easily be switched off when the standard digital dot is the preferred result.
