DuPont Packaging Graphics has installed its 500th Cyrel® Digital Imager 4835 at Carl Ostermann in Germany. Carl Ostermann is a tradeshop with a very well-established reputation for high quality and consistent plate production targeted to Tag & Label and Flexible Packaging industry markets.

“We’re proud to have installed the 500th CDI,” said Andreas Segelken, managing director at Carl Ostermann. “Thanks to our fourth DuPont™ Cyrel® CDI and four DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST systems installed on our premises, we’re able to deliver to our customers plates with enhanced output quality and consistency. We believe to own all the technology needed to be a real innovative and market oriented tradeshop in flexographic printing.”

Since 1995, DuPont Packaging Graphics and Carl Ostermann have worked to deliver plates for letterpress, silk screen and flexo plates to labeling and flexible packaging printers.

The DuPont™ Cyrel® Digital Imager (CDI) Spark 4835 is the best-selling unit in the CDI portfolio and addresses the small and medium volume label and folding carton flexo plate makers and converters. The solution was introduced in 2002 to compliment the DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST TD 1000 system to digitally image Cyrel® flexo plates sized up to 48” x 35” (1200 x 900 mm).

The DuPont™ Cyrel® Digital Imager images directly on the flexo plate avoiding the use of any analogue or digital film. In fact, the digital flexo plate has a mask layer – sensitized to the CDI’s laser light – on top of its surface. After imaging, this layer takes the function of the traditional film negative. Through the integration of the image carrier, a digital flexo plate has sharper image definition and steeper relief shoulders than conventional plates produced with film. Image deterioration by UV light absorption and scattering in the traditional contacting through vacuum sheet and film is totally eliminated.

The CDI 4835 installed at Carl Ostermann is equipped with a high-resolution optic to meet the increasing demand for higher and consistent quality in packaging.
