The challenge

Flexo plates of superior quality

Parera aspires to be the best in what it does. So offering customers flexo plates of the highest standard comes naturally to this print service provider.

Parera already works with an Esko CDI Spark plate imager and is very satisfied with its results. A new investment in Esko’s most innovative plate production solution was obvious.


Now operators only need to grab the plate they need, knowing it is certified and the specs are already pre-configured. This made everything more intuitive.

The solution

Intuitive plate production

The CDI Crystal 4835 XPS is an intuitive flexo plate processing solution. The high level of automation simplifies plate making to the extent that an operator needs just one hour of training.

Once a plate has been imaged in the CDI, the system automatically moves the plate to the next workflow step through the XPS exposure device. This makes the CDI Crystal XPS configuration the ultimate push-button plate production solution.
