CRON-ECRM to Launch Digital-UV Plate

NORTH ANDOVER, MA | CRON-ECRM will debut the Blackwood Digital-UV plate at the upcoming PRINT 17 Sept. 10–14, at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Company says the plate is designed to streamline the production process—with a simple ‘wash-out’ bath, plates are pressready in seconds and exhibit perfect dot reproduction, from 1%-98% for either stochastic screening (20 micron) or conventional screening to 200 lpi. Run length is to 50,000. 

The plate reportedly also benefits from eco-friendly platesetting, due to the non-ablative process and the use of a low-chemistry, non-toxic washout solution. This reduces the impact on the environment, as well as delivering significant financial savings on plate chemistry and controlled waste removal. The better contrast of the imaged plate enables the press operators to identify any pre-press errors helping to minimize waste in man hours, ink, and paper. The prepress wash-out also extends the life of fountain solution.

For UV ink printing, Blackwood offers UV double coating plate, HUV whose run length is over 50,000 and dot reproduction 1%-98% at 350 lpi. For normal ink printing, HU-PXX is said to offer the highest value in terms of price performance. Run length can go to 100,000 and dot reproduction 1%–98% at 350 lpi.

The HDI-600S Flexo CTP will also be on display, said to be the ideal imager for label printing, providing fault-free imaging experience and ensuring precision printing from all digital photopolymer plates, ablative films, and polyester-based letterpress plates.
