The application of Digicap NX Screening to the entire image area allows printers to produce digital flexographic plates that improve print quality throughout the full tonal range and expand the achievable color gamut. Users can now enjoy stronger colors and outstanding visual appearance in solid areas, in addition to the fine highlight detail and print consistency. This new feature uses the unique high resolution capabilities and 1:1 reproduction capabilities to create micro-texturization of the printing surface. This, in turn, improves ink transfer to deliver enhanced print quality, as well as production efficiencies, allowing flexo platemakers to more easily mix areas of solids and halftones on the same plate. Additionally, the new feature helps to reduce set-up time on press with plates that come to color more quickly.
