Live DuPont Cyrel Easy & Cyrel FAST workflow at Labelexpo

DuPont at Labelexpo India in Greater Noida – Stand E10 A


DuPont Advanced Printing will highlight its newest enhancements to the flexographic printing workflow process and showcase its pre-press offerings at Labelexpo India 2018 in Greater Noida, India, from 22-25 November. DuPont will showcase the Cyrel FAST 2000 TD thermal processor, Cyrel FAST 1000 ECLF exposure, light finisher and post exposure unit and DuPont Cyrel EASY flexographic printing plate technology. At stand E10 A in Hall 3, customers will get to see live prepress workflow for flexo platemaking.

DuPont’s stand will be next to Esko’s which is E10B, and demonstrations will show the entire process from packaging design to the workflow driving the Crystal XPS 4835 digital flexo imager and the processing on the latest DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000 TD and the Cyrel FAST 1000 ECLF exposure, light finisher and post exposure unit. The entire flexo platemaking process will be demonstrated using the DuPont Cyrel EASY flexo plates.

The latest addition to the DuPont portfolio, the Cyrel FAST 2000 TD is a thermal, solvent-free flexographic plate processor which provides outstanding quality and productivity in a mid-size (42” x 60”) format for both flexible packaging as well as tag and label applications. The new ergonomic and compact design features several cutting-edge tools and technologies that contribute to higher plate quality, easier workflow and improved machine serviceability.

Cyrel EASY plates are based on a new polymer that produces higher ink transfer and higher resolution. Customer testing has shown significantly improved higher solid ink densities in shadow areas without compromising on highlights. The new Cyrel EASY technology platform simplifies the prepress process by building the flat top digital dot directly into the plate, resulting in increased productivity and consistency. This simplifies the plate making workflow, with fewer steps and higher consistency without the need to invest in a nitrogen exposure unit, LED technology or lamination equipment to get flat top dots. Cyrel EASY plates are available for FAST/thermal and solvent processing and in engineered and smooth surfaces.

DuPont Cyrel 1000 ECLF can expose, post-expose and finish high quality photopolymer plates up to a format of 900 x 1,200 mm (36” x 48”). Unique to this exposure unit is the anodized temperature controlled bed, closed loop system that controls the exposure bed temperature, which translates into predictable and consistent exposures. The unit is fitted with a light integrator that compensates for the decrease in light output as the tubes age. To meet the demanding needs of high quality plates, the user can easily customize the 24 basic exposure set-ups.


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.
