September 29, 2011

HD Flexo has a new version, and the company’s Web Center online print approval and lifecycle manager now has 40,000 users.

Taking center stage among EskoArtwork’s wide range of product introductions at Labelexpo Europe is the company’s newest advances in digital flexo technologies, including HD Flexo and the Digital Flexo Suite. “We see a major trend towards both industrialization and digitalization in the label industry, and it’s one that continues to advance rapidly every day. Through our technological advances, we are proud to be one of the leading parties in this evolution," said Carsten Knudsen, CEO of EskoArtwork.

The firist release of HD Flexo enabled label printers to obtain significantly sharper images, smoother tints and a greater color gamut; new HD Flexo 2.0 improves the screening even further, delivering exceptional printing quality throughout the entire tonal range, including highlights with gradients down to zero, stable mid-tones, and higher ink density solids. In addition, the development of creating flat top dots generates sharper definition for outstanding image results. This means end users can have a more striking and visually impressive product with the all-important shelf impact.

The latest release of WebCenter, a web-based platform that manages pre-production approval and project life cycle, includes a 3D viewer which enables users to upload, view and perform the full document approval cycle on 3D files (Collada and Zipped Collada files). Label converters now can use WebCenter as an online medium to share 3D mockups with clients, make changes to the artwork immediately and gain approval quickly and efficiently.
