APR Showcases EskoArtwork HD Flexo
GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill.—All Printing Resources, Inc. (APR) announced the installation of the new EskoArtwork HD Flexo solution in its newly revamped demonstration room. The EskoArtwork HD Flexo consists of Hi-Resolution optics along with screening technology to take advantage of sharper and more accurate imaging. This technology can be upgraded on all EskoArtwork CDI systems and rivals offset printing in terms of print quality, allowing flexo printers to achieve soft edge fadeouts and clean, bright highlights.
This significant hardware and software digital solution is unique in that it is offered as an upgrade to existing Esko CDI imagers. This enables flexographic printers on tight budgets to embrace a whole new level of quality output.
“Usually when it comes to new technology, it’s out with the old and in with the new,” says Richard Black, APR Director Digital Solutions. “With the EskoArtwork hardware upgrade and screening package, you can maintain your original investment, while capitalizing on the latest technology.”
This digital upgrade is rooted in the expertise EskoArtwork has in security technology, developing specialty laser technology and optics capable of outputting very fine detail for printing financial documents. EskoArtwork has leveraged this high-resolution technology to help flexo printers upgrade from traditional 2400 or 2540 dpi to 4000 dpi or higher.
EskoArtwork HD Flexo provides benefits such as:
• A wide tonal range
• Smooth vignettes—print to zero
• Reduction of correction and retouching of CT images
• Simplified conversion of printing processes
“In the past, it’s been difficult to compete with the print quality of offset,” says Black. “For printers with a compatible EskoArtwork imager, or even those seeking a new imager, the EskoArtwork HD Flexo is definitely the best choice for today’s digital demands.”
“We’re very happy to be able to partner with APR on our EskoArtwork HD Flexo solution,” says Lawrence Foley Vice President In-Direct Sales. “By providing access to this high-resolution flexo technology in a demonstration environment, graphic arts professionals can see the significant benefits first-hand and experience how easy it is to use.”
