Launched at drupa 2016, this will be the first time that an HDI Flexo 1600 unit has been exhibited outside of China. CRON’s Thermal CTP: TP4648G will also be on display at the booth, representing CRON’s wide range of precision imaging systems. Designed with CRON’s philosophy of reducing waste, while striving for ‘perfect print’, the HDI Flexo CTP units are available in three size formats: 600 and 900mm for label applications, and 1600mm for general packaging work, and three options to enable users to fine tune production to their print requirements. “S” variants have a maximum resolution of 5080 dpi, while “H” variants have a maximum resolution of 9600 dpi. The exposure platform, based on CRON’s magnetic linear drive system, has gained much praise in the offset CTP market for its ability to image accurate and high quality dots from 1-99%, easily competing with offset quality when printed. All HDI Flexo variants are compatible with all digital photopolymer plates, ablative films and polyester-based letterpress plate. CRON’s TP46 Series of Thermal plate setters also offer optimum flexibility of use. With a maximum plate size of 1160 × 940mm, CRON TP46 products cover the full spectrum of print jobs from B1 to A3+, with full flexibility of plate format down to the minimum of 450 × 370mm. The TP46 models allow users to tune production to their individual resolution and throughput requirements.
