Printing Industries of America says

The judges praised Esko’s innovation that both streamlines flexographic platemaking – by automatically moving plates from the imager to the exposure unit – and improves plate consistency with UV LEDs, where the back and main exposures occur nearly concurrently.

HD Flexo - The new standard for flexographic printing plates
Perfect flat-top dots

The XPS Crystal is a digitally controlled LED UV exposure unit. The consistent light source, together with main and back exposure, delivers unmatched relief and image consistency as well as perfectly formed flat-top dots. As a result, these plates deliver the highest level of consistency and quality on press.

The process requires almost no operator invention, eliminating the chance for errors. It supports all photopolymer flexo plates.

Flexo plate making Simplified

The XPS Crystal exposure unit can be connected on one side to a
CDI flexo plate imager and on the other to a plate processor,
thus creating a complete, automated platemaking system.

Recognition in the flexo industry

In addition to the InterTech™ Technology Award, the XPS Crystal has been recognized earlier this year with an FTA Award and a Red Dot Award.

The PIA InterTech™ Award for the XPS Crystal is the 10th Esko has received since 2003.
