Platemaking with built-in flat top dotsDuPont launches Cyrel Easy Plate technologyDuPont Packaging Graphics has recently launched a new flexographic printing plate technology platform – DuPont Cyrel Easy. This new technology platform simplifies the prepress process by building the flat top digital dot directly into the plate, resulting in increased productivity and consistency. This is part of an ongoing effort by DuPont to drive progress in the flexographic printing industry by improving quality, sustainability and productivity.For flexographic printers, converters and trade shops looking for increased productivity, DuPont Cyrel FAST thermal and solvent platemaking system’s efficiency and consistency is increased by removing the flat top dot processing step and its associated cost“DuPont is excited to bring forward yet another key innovation to advance flexography,” said John Chrosniak, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics. “By building flat top dot capability directly into Cyrel Easy plates, we’re making it fast and simple to enhance productivity, while delivering world-class print quality.”

For flexographic printers, converters and trade shops looking for increased productivity, DuPont Cyrel FAST thermal and solvent platemaking system’s efficiency and consistency is increased by removing the flat top dot processing step and its associated cost. The result is a technology platform that offers customers the choice of both smooth and engineered surface plates that deliver high ink transfer and color saturation, regardless of the existing workflow. Cyrel Easy technology is currently being tested at select DuPont customers around the world, and commercial sales of the first generation of printing plates from the Cyrel Easy platform are scheduled for the third quarter of 2015.
