Esko has announced a new flexo platemaker, the CDI Crystal 4835, which takes 48x35ins plates and is essentially a smaller version of the Crystal 5080.
As with the existing 5080, it boasts automatic plate loading and unloading and is said to be relatively easy to use with minimal training required. There’s an option to add the XPS Crystal exposure unit with its digitally controlled simultaneous UV light main and back exposure.
Esko has also announced new Print Control Wizard software that uses a screen and dot gain curves that take into consideration the press, substrates, inks, anilox and other print run parameters.
Geert De Proost, director of solutions marketing at Esko commented: “By expanding our flexo solution portfolio with these innovations, we simplify flexo platemaking even further. Today it comes yet another step closer to be a simple ‘push the button’ solution.”
