DuPont Cyrel Solutions is one of the participants of the 31st edition of EskoWorld, a hybrid event that will bring together over 500 professionals, from both suppliers and brand owners, on 7-9 June at Gaylord Texan Resort (Dallas area).

This annual event gathers Esko users from around the globe to collaborate on accomplishments, discuss shared obstacles, enhance their knowledge of Esko solutions, and share industry best practices. Attendees can see and hear industry trends, be able to influence Esko solution roadmaps, and will have networking opportunities.

Presentation will also be focusing on DuPont’s lightning plates

On 8 June, Bradley Gasque, Flexo Application Consultant for DuPont, presented ‘Cyrel Lightning Plates – Achieving the balance between platemaking productivity and print quality when using Esko’s XPS exposure’. The presentation focused on the most recent launch of DuPont Cyrel Solutions, the Lightning plates that were optimized for LED exposure to address the challenges between productivity and quality. During this session, Brad will also explain why optimizing plates when using the XPS compared to conventional bank exposure units is important and share some of the success cases seen globally, highlighting the benefits in the different types of applications.

“We are honored to present at EskoWorld the winning technology of the FTA Innovation Award 2022. The Cyrel Lightning plate family is optimized for UV-LED exposure units to use this system’s capabilities fully. The benefits of the plates include a further optimized match between access time and plate performance while not compromising the print quality. Previously, exposure settings on UV-LED units often had to be adjusted for either higher quality or shorter access time. The Cyrel Lightning plates challenge this as they were formulated from the ground up with UV-LED exposure characteristics in mind. The Cyrel LSH is the first photopolymer plate of the Lightning family. It is solvent processable and currently available in 045 and 067 thicknesses”, explains Gasque.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
