Omet gets HD flexo certification

January 3, 2012

Certified by EskoArtwork, HD flexo is allowing Omet to achieve sharper and more accurate imaging.

Italian press manufacturer Omet is now HD certified by EskoArtwork. HD Flexo is a new process for making digital flexographic plates and the process is rapidly gaining popularity. HD Flexo achieves sharper and more accurate imaging, and its extended color gamut confers to color intensity and vividness, ensuring print consistency for the whole run length and relies on long-lasting plates.

To embrace HD Flexo, no new prepress equipment is required and no changes of working methods must be introduced. Omet has has embraced HD Flexo for its daily platemaking needs. Top-quality HD flexo labels were printed by Omet, under license of Carlsberg Brewery, during Labelexpo Europe 2011, and the company received much positive feedback.

“Since the awarding of the EskoArtwork Certification, HD Flexo has become the benchmark of flexo printing quality in our company," states Marco Calcagni, sales director ay Omet. “When we print on one of our combination presses, we see that their potential is enhanced by the use of HD flexo. On the other side, our R&D and printing department are engaged in the creation of the most compelling HD works to test, with the aim, of course, to improve our machines performance. Matching HD to flexo takes flexography beyond standards and represents the most immediate alternative to offset and gravure. The gap between offset and flexo quality is finally cancelled; a gravure-comparable quality level is achieved through greater cost-efficiency and environmental-friendly choices."
