The Print Control Wizard software adds a new level of simplification to the plate-making department.
Operators can use the wizard to quickly create premium flexo plates.
The tool uses all critical print parameters and variables (imaging resolution, exposure settings, plate, substrate, anilox, press type, inks, …) to standardize the generation of Crystal Screens and curves for each application, removing all non-valued added tasks from the process.
The Print Control Wizard is part of Esko’s renowned Imaging Engine. It comes with a new intuitive user interface which guides the user through the plate preparation process.
It’s built on Esko’s deep flexo expertise and automatically creates new Crystal Screening for Esko’s Imaging Engine to rip the file before sending the separated LENx files to the CDI flexo imager and XPS Crystal exposure unit.
Costs dictate that recycled low weight Kraft liners are becoming the norm for Corrugated Flexo Post Print. The board liners are decreasing in weight and the recycled content is increasing. This gives rise to specific print problems. The recycled fibers (plastic) repel ink and corrugated fluting marks become visible. PCW brings the solution.
