Surmounting challenges with precisely engineered plates.
From liquid to digitally imaged sheet photopolymer, Printron offers a range of flexographic printing plates each designed for specific printing conditions. And, we provide the services to ensure plates are mounted accurately for excellent press registration.
Quantum Digital FMD Sheet Photopolymer
Printron’s proprietary Quantum plate features a Flat Memory Dot (FMD) Printing Plate with foam cushion between the plate material and the polyester substrate. The cushion between the plate material and the substrate allows the plate to conform to irregular surfaces (corrugated fluting or press bounce) and also reduces print gain.
Digital FMD Sheet Photopolymer
Printron’s Flat Memory Dot (FMD) Printing Plate uses inert gas in the manufacturing process to build dots that have a unique top and sidewall construction that gives greater support and results in cleaner, sharper print.
Liquid Masked Photopolymer
Printron’s Liquid Masked Photopolymer plate is imaged or cured only in areas that have print copy. Since less photopolymer is used, the plates are lighter and easier to handle.
Printron’s liquid photopolymer plates are a cost effective alternative for simplistic color or brown box printing. When properly cared for, they offer a long life span with excellent print results. The low tack plates provide cleaner print with less cleaning and less press downtime.
Printron offers plate mounting options to support a variety of print expectations. Accurately mounting individual flexographic plates onto a carrier sheet is achieved through the use of Esko’s Digital Flexo Suite and an AV Flexologic Opti-Mount 3500. After the plate file is created, a mounting file and (2) digital HD cameras (magnification up to 170x) are used to mount the plate pieces with mounting marks, providing very high registration accuracy and repeatability. This allows plate mounting to any repeat size and up to 138″ wide.
