The screens are designed to optimize ink laydown in high-volume printing, typically seen when printing a white undercoat, or solid areas with spot colors. They contain a suite of screens that have shown to improve solid printing at volumes of 4.0 bcm and greater. There are five screens in total: two screens designed for customers without the HD Pixel+ imaging capability and three screens designed to take full advantage of HD Pixel+ imaging.
“We are excited to launch our new Cyrel EASY BRITE Screens. A brighter white is not just about opacity – we believe high opacity alone doesn’t make a good print. You need a combination of opacity, low mottle and low graininess to have a good white. Cyrel EASY BRITE Screens will deliver not only high opacity, but also improved mottle and improved graininess on inks that use a high volume anilox. The EASY BRITE Index is a multidimensional measurement that combines opacity, mottle and graininess into a single number,” said Shyamal Desai, marketing manager, Americas, DuPont Advanced Printing.
According to DuPont, the combination of Cyrel EASY Plates and the EASY BRITE Screens deliver:
- Better overall consistency and more consistent print of large solid areas
- Higher print quality
- Uniform ink layer
- Elimination of trail edge void
- Improved appearance of final print
- Improved opacity, reduced graininess and reduced mottle
- Flexibility, as they allow printers to go to higher quality levels using their existing setup
