DuPont shows Cyrel FAST 2000TD

Next generation plate processing technology

The DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000TD system is on display at drupa

DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) has launched the DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000TD system, which provides outstanding quality and productivity in a mid-size format for flexible packaging and tag and label applications. The new technology is being featured at the upcoming drupa. “DuPont leveraged its extensive knowledge of thermal processing in developing this next-generation system,” said Jan Scharfenberg, technical manager, DuPont Advanced Printing. “In terms of plate quality and machine performance, this is truly a change for the industry and we look forward to implementing the technology with our customers.”

The Cyrel FAST 2000TD features several cutting-edge tools and technologies that contribute to higher plate quality, easier workflow, and improved machine serviceability. FAST 2000TD is the next-generation technology to DuPont’s existing FAST processor
portfolio. The 2000TD processor works with DuPont FAST thermal workflow – an innovative, highly productive plate processing technology that uses solvent-free thermal processing to produce a press-ready finished plate in one hour or less. Compared to traditional plate processing solutions that require the use of solvents and require long plate drying times, FAST technology is not only solvent-free, but also dramatically improves productivity because it eliminates the drying steps.

During drupa, print samples, demonstrations, tours and featured speakers will reveal how DuPont works across the package printing industry value chain to address technology needs and help customers achieve desired results consistent with their brand-building initiatives. Additional technologies featured at the show will include DuPontCyrel EASY flexographic printing plates; DuPont Artistri digital inks; DuPont Tyvek packaging technology; and DuPont Izon anti-counterfeit technology.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
