KB Labels Group has invested in a modern Screen PlateRite FX1524 platesetter, the perfect solution for the Group’s future growth. The company has been a leader of the pack for four decades, with a reputation that has been built on service, quality and excellence. A glance at the Gold Pack Awards adorning the walls of its smart reception are ample proof of its success.
‘We investigated various CtP options and chose the Screen platesetter, from Kemtek Print Solutions, because of its quality, speed and efficiency,’ said general manager, Ricky Maconi. ‘The professional after-sales support and service that we’ve come to expect from Kemtek was also another deciding factor. Once the platesetter was installed, Kemtek’s technician ensured our prepress staff members were competent and confident in its operation.’
The Screen PlateRite FX1524 streamlines processing and improves print quality for labels and various other flexographic printing applications, including flexible packages, cartons and corrugated cardboard packages.
It’s equipped with an innovative, high-output exposure head that handles flexo plates, letterpress plates and thermal ablative film up to 106cm x 152cm and has an easy-loading mechanism that securely mounts large-size flexo plates, for increased prepress efficiency and productivity.
Other features include a 64-channel laser imaging head and newly-developed screening technology that gives a maximum imaging resolution of 4 800 dpi and a maximum plate output of 4sqm/hour.
Additionally, Flexo Dot Hi-Res Hybrid Screening, Screens halftone dots developed especially for flexo and letterpress printing, creates enhanced highlights for platemaking and printing.
‘Because the FX1524 handles finite print details with ease, we’re able to produce the highest-quality high-end label ranges, which has really impressed our customers,’ said Maconi. ‘The system complements our current platemaking facility perfectly. The single-phase process saves energy and because of the FX1524’s high plate output we can get jobs out quicker than expected. Overall, it’s a perfect maintenance-free plug and play prepress solution!’
