With the CDI Crystal 5080 XPS, making flexo plates finally becomes a coordinated, linear process.
REMOVING COMPLEXITY THROUGH AUTOMATION
The flexo plate making process consists of many complex and manual steps. This not only takes time, it also offers ample opportunity for human errors.
WINNER OF FTA AND RED DOT AWARDS
The XPS Crystal exposing unit won the prestigious FTA award. The CDI Crystal 5080 XPS was the winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017!
FLEXO PLATE MAKING REDEFINED FROM SCRATCH
The integration and automation of digital imaging and LED UV exposure improves consistency and overall ease of use. This solution not only frees up valuable operator time but also reduces maintenance and the footprint of your flexo equipment.
> Reduce manual steps by 50%
> Reduce errors by 50% – less plate waste
> Reduce operator time by 73%
The CDI Crystal 5080 XPS combines plate imaging and exposing into a single operation.
-CDI Crystal 5080
The CDI Crystal 5080 is a new digital flexo plate imager, based on the current industry leading CDI technology.
-XPS Crystal 5080
The XPS Crystal 5080 combines UV main and back exposure in a single exposure device.
The Esko CDI Crystal 5080 is the basis for an impressive reduction of complexity in the plate room. The new imager works with Crystal Technology, and is designed to connect seamlessly with the XPS Crystal digital UV exposure device. Combining high resolution fiber laser imaging from the CDI Crystal with the patented back and front UV LED exposure from the XPS Crystal is producing digital flexo plates with unique reproducibility and quality. The Esko CDI Crystal 5080 produces the perfect plate for all the flexo print applications that require high print output and stability on press.
The innovative XPS Crystal optimally combines UV main and back exposure. Unlike UV frames using lightbulbs fluctuating in output the XPS Crystal uses UV LEDs which don’t need warm-up time and always emit consistent radiation. A simultaneous and optimally controlled UV main and back exposure produces highly consistent digital flexo plates – for every digital flexo plate type at every time of your production day.
A full-sized flexo imager able to produce larger format price-effective plates for corrugated converters. Loading and unloading of large, thick plates is assisted by an air-supported loading table that makes it easy to move plates in place - securing them in place is just as easy with the Esko EasyClamp III pneumatic clamp. The CDI Spark 5080 Semi offers automated plate loading and semi automated unloading. The option guarantees safe and simple loading of the thickest plates without operator intervention.
