DuPont Announces New Flexo Plate Equipment


WILMINGTON, DE | DuPont announces flexographic plate and equipment technologies for the tag and label market. Products include the Cyrel FAST DFUV plate, the Cyrel FAST 1001 TD processor, and the Cyrel FAST DFR plate, all reportedly designed to deliver quality, productivity, and sustainability benefits to printers. 

The new Cyrel FAST DFUV flexographic printing plate is designed specifically for the narrow web printer who needs a high-performance plate for use with UV-curable inks. It is a thermal process plate said to come up to color quickly minimizing start-up waste and printing smooth and dense solids, without compromising dot gain, highlights, and resolutions.

For narrow web printers who want a more efficient and more sustainable solvent-free processor, the new Cyrel FAST 1001 TD is a small-format thermal platemaking system that has been redesigned and streamlined for improved dimensional stability and efficiency. The system uses what is called a unique thermal management system and multiple roller design to improve cleanout, provide more consistent relief depth, and a more uniform floor, especially with thin-gauge (0.045 in.) plates often used for tag and label applications.

Greater productivity also can be achieved using the new Cyrel FAST DFR flexographic printing plate, which company says has shown significant improvements in run lengths without the need to clean or replace the plates. Offering the benefits of thermal processing, this new plate is said to provide good quality print results with a variety of inks.
