DuPont showcases new innovations at China Print 2017

Beijing 6-13 May, Hall E3 Stand 025

The DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000TD features several cutting-edge tools and technologies that contribute to higher plate quality, easier workflow, and improved machine serviceability

At its stand, DuPont will showcase its complete Cyrel EASY platform and its ability to serve all package printing segments. DuPont will highlight its newest additions to the portfolio—Cyrel EASY ESM and EFM, the built-in flat-top dot digital plates developed especially for paper printing application. Cyrel EASY ESM and EFM are for use in solvent and the Cyrel FAST thermal processing, respectively. These new products have been designed to achieve the highest quality image reproduction on various paper substrates with a single plate offering, simplifying operations in both the plate room and press room. Since its introduction in 2015, Cyrel EASY technology has proven its ability to deliver higher ink transfer, excellent fade-to-zero highlights, as well as improved productivity for both trade shops and converters globally, especially in flexible packaging and the tag and label segment.

“Customer testing of our new EASY plates for paper applications has demonstrated excellent results: improved solid ink density and reduced mottling, as well as printing durability. Trade shops will also benefit from a simplified workflow and exceptional exposure latitude,” said Si Ming Luo, regional marketing manager – Asia Pacific, DuPont Advanced Printing. “DuPont has continued to develop next-generation DuPont Cyrel plates to achieve consistent print quality through both solvent and FAST/thermal workflows. These efforts have resulted in revolutionary improvements to the plate polymer and platemaking workflow.”

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.
