With Esko’s new Crystal technology digital plate imaging and UV exposure (simultaneously main and back!) are combined in one automated process.
This means that there’s less need for the operator to interfere. This also means that it has become easier for converters to start making their own plates closer to the press.
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.

With the CDI Crystal 5080 XPS, flexo platemaking has finally consolidated into a far more efficient workflow.
The CDI Crystal 5080 XPS offers distinct benefits:
The XPS Crystal exposing unit won the prestigious FTA award. The CDI Crystal 5080 XPS was the winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017!
Time spent on manual repetitive tasks during plate processing should be avoided. The new automated flexo platemaking module for Automation Engine allows running a fully automated workflow. Prepare .LEN files automatically for plate making.
The Device Manager moves operational control upstream to the prepress department. Flexo platemaking and digital finishing operations are better integrated with the prepress workflow. Operators use Device Manager to monitor job statuses, and to manage and prioritize the queues of all connected devices.
