Denmark’s reprocentret A/S invests in Esko flexo plate making solution

The company is a long term Esko user

Esko CDI Crystal 5080 XPS

Danish trade shop reprocentret A/S has invested in a fully integrated flexo plate making solution from Esko. reprocentret A/S is a specialist in plate making for mid and wide web flexible packaging, labels and brand owner services. It has installed an Esko CDI Crystal 5080 XPS, the fourth such machine at its facility in Vejle, Denmark.

reprocentret is one of the largest independent trade shops in Scandinavia,” said James Mason, Esko regional business director, EMEA North. “Having enjoyed a successful relationship for many years, we’re delighted to further extend our relationship with the installation of a new CDI Crystal XPS. The flexo imager and integrated exposure unit really complements the company’s existing set up, which now includes a completely integrated workflow featuring the full Esko portfolio for editing, workflow rip, collaboration and imaging.”

As per Mason, reprocentret will benefit from significant quality and efficiency gains from the CDI Crystal XPS, as it uses LEDs that require no warm-up time and emit even light to deliver highly consistent plate exposure. “The integrated unit also reduces manual steps by 50%, operator input time is slashed by more than 70%, and errors are reduced by up to 50%, meaning a significant decrease in plate material, and importantly time, being wasted.”

Thomas Christensen, CEO of reprocentret, said this consistency was one of the key drivers behind the latest investment. “The combination of the Esko CDI Crystal 5080 with the XPS UV LED exposure unit provides the highest levels of consistency and quality on the market,” he said. “This helps us not only achieve our goals in terms of delivering results of the highest standard, but also underlines our position in leading the way in using the latest technology in Denmark. Indeed, we are proud to be the first company in the country with this integrated setup.”

The sale was completed by Artwork Systems Nordic A/S, a Danish channel partner of Esko.
