EskoArtwork will showcase its latest range of innovative solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2011 on stand B30 in Hall 5. Taking center stage will be the company’s newest advances in digital flexo technologies including HD Flexo and the Digital Flexo Suite. Savvy visitors looking to streamline their end-to-end workflows should make a bee-line for the EskoArtwork stand to find out why the company has become the worldwide reference for label design, prepress and workflow solutions. Irrespective of whether converters produce labels digitally, in offset, flexo, letterpress, gravure or screen printing, EskoArtwork’s solutions can help them achieve significant productivity gains, reduce costs and deliver higher and more consistent levels of quality. Labelexpo Europe takes place at the Brussels Expo, Belgium from 28 September to 1 October, 2011.
“We see a major trend towards both industrialization and digitalization in the label industry, and it’s one that continues to advance rapidly every day. Through our technological advances, we are proud to be one of the leading parties in this evolution," says Carsten Knudsen, CEO of EskoArtwork. "We are looking forward to coming to Labelexpo Europe again this year to meet with our customers - both existing and new - and to answer all of their questions on how to achieve the best possible results from their label prepress and production.”
Raising the bar yet again in digital flexo plate imaging
Placing the focus on ways to excel in digital flexo production will be EskoArtwork’s live demonstrations of its advanced digital flexo solutions. The highlight will be the latest HD Flexo version, the company's highly acclaimed flexo imaging technology. While the first release enabled label printers to obtain significantly sharper images, smoother tints and a greater color gamut, HD Flexo 2.0 improves the screening even further delivering exceptional printing quality throughout the entire tonal range including highlights with gradients down to zero, stable mid-tones, and higher ink density solids. In addition, the innovative development of creating flat top dots generates sharper definition for outstanding image results. This means end users can have a more striking and visually impressive product with the all-important shelf impact. A wide variety of excellent real-life HD Flexo samples from a wide variety of high level brands both for labels and flexible packaging will be presented on the stand. Installed at more than 250 customer sites, HD Flexo sets the standard for flexo plate quality since its release in 2009. As such, it will be found at work inside most of the flexo presses in action across the show floor at Labelexpo Europe.
EskoArtwork’s Cyrel Digital Imagers (CDI) which will be present on the stand with a state of the art equipped CDI 2530, the most popular digital flexo plate imager for the label industry.
Experience the Digital Flexo Suite
How to streamline and shorten the production of print-ready digital flexo plates will be highlighted by the Digital Flexo Suite. This set of platemaking tools offers quality improvements and cost savings through the automation of the flexo plate production. Digital Flexo Suite for labels works through the combination of using smart software and the EskoArtwork Kongsberg cutting tables. This setup will also be live demonstrated with a Kongsberg table and related software at EskoArtwork’s Labelexpo Europe stand.
