Full High Definition
Our company, Flexoplates Papadopoulos, introduces Full High Definition technology and solves the printing problems of flexography. From 2015 until today, we remain the only company in Greece with the internationally acclaimed Full HD quality certification.
The new Full HD Engraving technology differs significantly compared to previous cliché-making methods in terms of end-product quality. The simultaneous lighting system is powered by LED (not UV) lamps, creating flat top dots. Stability is achieved across the surface of the cliché in terms of not only the dots but also the hardness and repeatability of the cliché.
With the flat top dot scheme, the print is excellent, as the structure and size allow for perfect erasures, distinct details and vivid contrasts.
In addition, there is a choice of many different microcells that until recently were not feasible. Full HD microcells deliver noticeably better spots with good coverage and up to 30% longer. Printing companies can save costs using anilox with less ink transfer.
The combination of intense blobs and smooth gradients with the same cliche is now feasible in flexography making it even more economical and competitive compared to other printing methods.
By constantly monitoring and investing in new technologies according to future packaging standards, we help make flexography even more productive, efficient and high-quality printing. In 2018 we managed to complete our new investment, Crystal XPS.
This is the latest innovation of Esko that won the FTA and Red dot award in late 2017. The Crystal XPS is a modern simultaneous illumination unit (front and rear) with LEDs for clichés up to 1270mm x 2032mm.
Consistently, quality and austerity, the extra benefits of Crystal Plates add one more step to flexographic printing.
• The human error factor is eliminated, as it is at one stage producing simultaneous lighting (front and back to the photopolymer plate).
• The stiffness of the cliché is uniform throughout its surface as well as its strength.
• A perfect dot shape is achieved with proper support at its base but also with absolute stability even in the smallest dots.
• We have consistent and repetitive quality cliches.
• We can provide cliché once in the desired dimension, especially for the carton industry, where requirements tend to be large.
We ensure the printing of our customers clearly higher intensity and coverage on spotted surfaces (using microcells), excellent print of positive and negative elements and extremely gradients. Printing gets vivid, with the appropriate tensions, contrasts and erasures at 0%. We establish our position at the top, supporting with the best quality of market clichés and always developing our benefits.
