Italian-based prepress services company, Digital Flex, has installed three Esko CDI Spark 5080 HD Flexo systems. The Esko CDI Spark 5080 HD combines high optical resolution (4000 ppi) with high-definition screening to produce digital flexography plates that deliver outstanding quality and stability. The system offers many benefits including wide tonal range and colour gamut; rich, dense solids; smooth transitions; and a simplified overall print conversion process.
Andrea Vergnano, Production Manager of Digital Flex, said, Flexography has always aimed at matching the output quality of offset and gravure. Thanks to Esko’s HD Flexo technology, our customers are now getting consistently outstanding results at a very competitive flexographic price.
Esko CDI HD Flexo systems are designed to provide quality to match their flexibility. The software also supports workflows for flat dots, including DigiFlow, LUX and NExT. Each plate supplier can individually customise various parametres to obtain the best result for their plates. Esko’s goal with these innovations was to overcome the differences between flat and round dots and minimise that effect on print quality to create the best possible combination of dot structures on a single plate.
