Home » Mark Andy, DuPont Partner to Present Video Plate Mounter, Cyrel Thermal Processor at Labelexpo Americas
Mark Andy Print Products and DuPont Advanced Printing will present advanced platemaking, plate mounting and processing equipment, as well as offer the opportunity to talk with technical experts, during Labelexpo Americas, set for Sept. 25-27 in Rosemont, Illinois.
Technology showcased at Booth 749 will include the Mark Andy VPM400 video plate mounter, the DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000 TD thermal processor and Esko’s CDI Crystal 4835 XPS system.
The VPM400 is a standalone unit with adjustable table, plate cylinder mounting rails and laser pointers. The plate mounter provides fast and accurate plate mounting to complement workflow. Live on-demand demonstrations of the VPM400 will be available throughout the show and will support live label production at Booth 319.
Additionally, attendees can see the benefits of DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000 TD, a thermal solvent-free flexographic plate processor. The equipment is environmentally friendly with no solvents to handle, store or recycle and no drying time is required, enabling businesses to create high-quality Cyrel FAST press-ready pates in less than an hour.
The Esko CDI Crystal 4835 XPS, created to combine flexo plate imaging and exposure, will also be on hand. Given there are five manual steps in the traditional platemaking process, this system streamlines the process to one simple step. The advanced solution boosts repeatable consistent plate quality and eliminates uncertainty at plate quality control.
"At Labelexpo 2018, we are showcasing the comprehensive solution that DuPont offers to the label market,” says Shyamal Desai, Americas marketing manager, DuPont Advanced Printing. “These offerings include DuPont Cyrel EASY plates and DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000 TD, which highlights an efficient workflow using the newest thermal processing technology. We will also be showcasing products from DuPont Tyvek.”
