Phototype Installs Duel CTP Devices for Flexo Platemaking
CINCINNATI, Ohio—Phototype, a leader in packaging lifecycle management for many of the world’s most recognized brands, announces the installation of two Esko-Graphics Advance flexo plate setters. The CDI Advance 5080 has a large exposure size (50in. x 80in.), and features advanced multi-beam fiber laser optics with a record imaging speed of up to 8.0 m2/hr., effectively matching the fastest plate processing equipment in the industry.
The enhanced quality and increased productivity of these bigger, faster plate setters will allow Phototype to respond to an uptake in print tool sales to converters and manufacturers of consumer packaged goods. Bill Hounshell, Phototype’s VP of printing services said, “The marketplace requires us to produce larger volumes of plate materials for very specialized packaging in much shorter timeframes. These devices will help our team better meet those challenges.”
Phototype President and CEO Stephen Olberding added, “Demand for our NuDot screening technology has driven a substantial amount of new work into our business. This, coupled with strong growth from our Converting clients, requires us to greatly increase our throughput. We’re excited to put these two state-of-the-art machines to work.”
