Inci.Flex automates its flexo platemaking with the help of Esko
Italian company Inci.Flex has become the first repro house to automate its flexo platemaking process with Esko’s new CDI Crystal 5080 XPS.
Esko launched the CDI Crystal 5080 XPS flexo platemaking system at drupa for flexo platemaking by simultaneously exposing both sides of a flexo plate using UV LED heads. It also combines imaging and exposing. This results in 50% fewer manual steps, 30% faster access to plates and 73% less required operator time.
This is not the first Esko equippment Inci.Flex has invested in. They already run two CDI Spark 5080s with Full HD Flexo, a Kongsberg XN 22 cutting table with the Digital Flexo Suite, as well as PackEdge, Artpro, Plato, DeskPack, Studio, Automation Engine, Imaging Engine and Color Engine.
