GERMANY • DuPont Advanced Printing launched the DuPont Cyrel Fast 2000TD system, which provides quality and productivity in a mid-size format for flexible packaging and tag and label applications, the company said. The machine has features tools and technologies that contribute to easier workflow, and improved machine serviceability.
It works with DuPont Fast thermal workflow that uses solvent-free thermal processing to produce a finished plate in one hour or less, according to the company. Compared to traditional plate processing solutions that require the use of solvents and require long plate drying times, it is much faster because it eliminates the drying steps.
DuPont also had its Cyrel Easy flexographic printing plates on display and said it was working on plates for the corrugated, beverage and folding carton markets, which should be available later this year. The company celebrated a milestone in its plate technology, saying that more than 100 global customers use the plates. The plates are available globally for thermal and solvent processing in engineered and smooth surfaces.
