Repro Poly Services, which supplies to label and carton printers and wide web flexo customers, installed the Esko CDI Spark 4260 digital flexo imager as part of its commitment to constantly upgrading equipment to ensure optimum customer service.

Despite restrictions due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the company was able to replace a smaller machine with the new Esko model during lockdown.

The challenge

A need for a faster and bigger sized flexo imager

“Since we began operating almost 15 years ago, we have regularly upgraded our technology to ensure we remained at the forefront of India’s competitive and fast-growing flexo printing and packaging industry,” said Rohit Shingala, managing partner at Repro Poly Services.

“We identified a need for a faster and bigger sized flexo imager for our plate production, which drove us in our decision to install a new Esko device.”

The solution

The CDI Spark 4260 digital flexo imager delivers the highest quality flexo plates for customers in the flexible packaging and folding carton markets, while its large size also helps Repro Poly Services make inroads in corrugated printing. It can run at speeds of up to 4m² per hour thanks to a high-reliability fiber laser and multibeam optics. In just 24 minutes, it images a full size 42 x 60-inch or 1067 mm x 1524 mm flexo plate, regardless of thickness.

“With the new, larger plate-size imager in operation, our productivity has practically doubled,” said Mr Shingala. “Our processing time has been halved from one hour to just 30 minutes, and we have also managed to cut our waste substantially. With our earlier imager, we were able to process full-size plates of maximum 1,200mm, but with the Esko CDI Spark we can now process a full-size plate of 1,600mm.”
