How to continuously push the high quality standards that Eye Graphics set for themselves. Eye Graphics wanted to take the next step and go digital.

The Solution:

The Esko CDI Advance 5080, a full-sized flexo imager able to produce larger format price-effective plates.

The Benefits:

Since the machine was installed a month ago in January, Eye Graphic has been impressed with the capabilities of the CDI Advance 5080, as well as the level and commitment of Esko’s after sales team of engineers and trainers. Ho informs that the machine meets all the specifications presented in the brochures and technical literature, and that the Esko team has already come down twice to provide specialized training for Eye Graphic staff.
