The CDI Crystal and XPS Crystal are very easy to operate. We can train new operators very fast, and that enables us to make plates at night or early in the morning, depending on our needs, and not only when our platemaking expert is in.

The challenge

Ensure on-time delivery

Schur® Star Systems GmbH saw a need to streamline and automate prepress and platemaking in order to ensure on-time delivery.

The company therefore implemented an in-house platemaking department.

The solution

An in-house platemaking department

Schur® Star Systems GmbH chose Esko’s CDI Crystal 4835 XPS to further automate flexo platemaking.

From the one-up artwork all the way to the press-ready set of flexo plates, Esko systematically eliminates manual steps and inefficiencies where possible, making platemaking itself a two-step process.

The benefits

Automation that results in the highest possible quality

  • Ease of use
  • Minimal training, no need for a platemaking expert
  • Highest possible quality results for flexo printing
