Launched at FTA Forum and INFOFLEX 2023

DuPont's stall design for Infoflex 2023

DuPont Cyrel Solutions has announced the newest member of the Cyrel Lightning plate family that is being launched at the FTA Forum & INFOFLEX 2023. The new Cyrel Lightning LFH plate is said to deliver quick access times, consistent printing results, and a reduced environmental footprint.

The Cyrel Lightning LFH plate was built on the technology of the award-winning Cyrel Lightning plates, which received the FTA Technical Innovation Award in 2022. 

“This new plate is optimized for the latest UV-LED exposure technology, such as the Esko XPS Crystal, and was designed for the sustainable thermal Cyrel FAST process. Combining the unique stability of LED exposure with the quick, easy and solvent-free platemaking of Cyrel FAST helps our customers produce high-end printing plates quickly and efficiently,” explains Tucker Norton, Global Business leader, DuPont Cyrel Solutions.

The new plate allows for the use of the latest screening technologies for enhanced print quality, making it ideal for tradeshops and converters seeking to produce high-quality plates. The workflow is simple to use and results in outstanding prints.

“We are confident that converters that are thinking about running platemaking operations in-house as well as other flexographic plate providers will appreciate the ease of use and the high quality printforms that this workflow provides. Combining UV-LED exposure and thermal Cyrel FAST processing offers repeatable and sustainable platemaking combined with a small operational footprint” adds Norton.

In conclusion, Cyrel Lightning LFH offers a quick, sustainable, and efficient solution to significant platemaking challenges. The new Cyrel Lightning LFH is available in 1.14 mm and 1.7mm (0.045’’ and 0.067’’) thicknesses.

“We are proud to keep innovating for our customers for improved print quality and productivity using our sustainable Cyrel FAST process. The Forum and INFOFLEX show provide a great opportunity to meet people, learn and share experiences, explore new technologies, and find innovative solutions. As a long-time sponsor of this show, DuPont values the contribution of these events to the flexography industry, which is aligned with our commitment to developing innovative solutions for our customers to thrive,” concludes Norton.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
