DuPont Packaging Graphics Unveils First Cyrel® DigiCorr System
DuPont Packaging Graphics recently introduced the first DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiCorr System in China. The system was installed in the DuPont Customer Technology Center in Shanghai China to welcome its first group of visitors.
A total of three groups including 30 customers from converters and printers visited the DuPont Customer Technology Center (CTC) to experience and view the demonstration of the newly installed DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiCorr System that was conducted by DuPont Packaging Graphics. During the visit, customers were most interested in the key advantages of the economic workflow and new digital plate making technology, producing a unique hybrid-fat topped dot, to enhance print performance while reducing fluting on images, as well as increasing print contrast overall quality.
“When comparing samples printed by DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiCorr with conventional technology, the printing quality is obviously superior in terms of reduction of fluting and smoother vignettes,” said Qiu Dong, general manager -- Dongguan Yihua Flexo Technology Co. Ltd. “I believe that converters will definitely benefit from this new technology and feel more confident on conversion from offset to flexo printing.”
“We are glad to see this new technology has been introduced to China,” said Joyce Qi, packaging manager -- Black & Decker (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. “Consumers will enjoy a better looking corrugated package than ever.”
Besides the Cyrel® Digicorr system, the Cyrel® 2000ECLF Exposure system, Cyrel® 4260 FAST processor, Cyrel® Smart 2000P and 2000 Dryer as well as a Digital flexo suite for plate pre-mounting application from Esko Artwork also have been installed in Shanghai CTC for the purpose of training and technology development.
The DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiCorr System from DuPont Packaging Graphics produces uniquely shaped hybrid digital dots that print with minimal “fluting” or “washboarding,” the condition that results when the printing process reveals the corrugated flutes that provide the structural strength specific to corrugated shipping containers and store displays. In addition, the increased dot support with optimal shoulder angle results in a longer plate run length.
Last year, the DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiCorr system received the 2010 Technological Innovator of the Year Award from the Flexographic Pre-Press Platemakers Association (FPPA). To date, there have been 20 installations of DuPont™ Cyrel® Systems worldwide. Corrugated packages printed by the DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiCorr system will soon appear in the China market.
DuPont Packaging Graphics is the world’s leading supplier of flexographic plate-making systems in digital and conventional formats, including DuPont™ Cyrel® brand photopolymer plates, Cyrel® FAST processing equipment, Cyrel® round sleeves, mounting and finishing products.
