Flexo printing is becoming more and more attractive to brands all over the world. Print runs are becoming shorter, so printers are looking for a viable alternative for processes like gravure. Without sacrificing print quality, they want a process that is cost efficient on shorter runs.
Flexographic printing offers that alternative. Esko introduced high definition quality to the world of flexo printing. Companies are moving production away from gravure ever since. The benefits are too good to ignore: finally, flexographic print rivals the quality of gravure and letterpress printing.
Flexographic printing quality depends on the quality of the plates. The flexo plate making process consists out of many complex and manual steps. This not only takes time, it also offers ample opportunity for human errors.
With the CDI Crystal XPS, making flexographic plates finally becomes a coordinated, linear process.
Esko’s CDI Crystal Imagers and exposure units offer superb and consistent results that were only achievable in offset or gravure before.
