PLATE IMAGER

March 13, 2013

Esko has announced a new addition to its CDI flexo plate images with the introduction of the CDI Spark 2420. It is designed specifically for narrow web label converters; it accommodates plate sizes up to 609 mm x 508 mm, and can also handle a wider range of plate materials. These include digital flexo plates, chemistry-free film, digital foil-based letterpress plates, digital metal-based letterpress plates and digital silk screens. Operation is aided by EasyClamp, which holds flexo plates of any thickness securely in place on the vacuum drum. Esko provides an imaging resolution upgrade path on the CDI Spark 2420. Customers can choose the standard 2000ppi to 2540ppi or upgrade to High Res 2540ppi to 4000ppi or HD Flexo 4000ppi in combination with high definition screening. In addition, the CDI Spark 2420 comes with the choice of Optics 7.5, Optics 10 or Optics 15.
