Staff member
CRON-ECRM announces its entry into digital flexo CtP with the CRON-ECRM HDI-900 Flexo.

With a compact footprint, this flexographic platesetter images at resolutions up to 9600 dpi. Targeted to label, packaging, carton and corrugated printers, the company claims to have a price/value advantage over the competition.

ECRM HDI family also produces letterpress and flexographic plates, as well as ablative films. By utilizing individual fiber-coupled diodes, the company claims that users benefit from redundancy, eliminating production downtime in the event of laser failure.

The new platesetter will be running live at Label Expo-2016, Booth #5325–with both solvent and water wash plates–imaging up to 9600 dpi with a maximum plate size of 920x730mm & as small as 100x160mm.

The company is also seeking new distribution with established dealers in NA.

Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
