Asahi Photoproducts has launched a premium digital photopolymer flexo-plate technology with a special pinning top dot that enables a wide color space, vibrant color reproductions, soft tonal shades and improved productivity. A feature of both Asahi’s solvent-washable TOP and water-washable AWP plates, the company’s pinning top dot technology (PDT), enables a clean ink transfer and prevents ink accumulating on the plate surfaces and shoulders in screen areas. This leads to fewer cleaning intervals and reduced downtime, as well as significant quality improvements. The PDT allows a kiss-touch printing pressure setting. It makes use of low plate surface tension, made possible by a specially engineered Asahi polymer chemistry, to inhibit liquid flow.
