Agfa's :Sublima XM Screening for Flexo Is Boon for Maryland Prepress Shop


RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ, USA—Agfa reports Joppa, Maryland-based flexographic prepress trade shop Mark/Trèce recently upgraded its capabilities by implementing the manufacturer's :Sublima XM Screening for Flexo. "The move lets Mark/Trèce offer its customers higher resolution imaging without requiring investment in resources on the part of converters," states Agfa.

According to Agfa, the shop utilizes Agfa's :Avantra 44 and :Accuset imagesetters, a :Grand Sherpa 50 for proofing, :Apogee X, and film. "Recently, Mark/Trèce's management decided they wanted to offer their customers something different that would have a big impact on the quality of its output," explains the company. "Mark/Trèce discovered that :Sublima would allow the shop to stand out from the crowd."

Agfa says with Mark/Trèce's installation of :Sublima, investment in systems and equipment is not required on the part of its converter customers in implementing the technology. "A flexo printer can achieve line screens of 154, 170, 188, and 212 lpi without changing anilox rolls, helping create the quality, eye-popping packaging materials their customers demand," adds the manufacturer.

Explains Mark/Trèce corporate product manager Bob Dauses, "With Agfa's :Sublima, we have doubled our customers' screening capabilities, which previously was unheard of; :Sublima gives the corrugated market a tool that far exceeds the current capabilities of direct-to-plate systems."
