HD FLEXO & FULL HD FLEXO

How does it work?

A new standard for flexo plates

The Full HD Flexo technology combines high resolution imaging at 4000ppi (HD Flexo imaging and screening technology) with digitally controlled main exposure inside the CDI. The digital Inline UV2 main exposure through a LED-array delivers a UV power density high enough to gain full control over the polymerization process during main exposure.

The Inline UV2 digital main exposure now makes flexo platemaking fully digital. Human errors are reduced and the plate consistency is boosted enormously.

Controlling the dot shape

The unique Full HD Flexo platemaking process can digitally control the dot shape: Full HD Flexo plates and sleeves now combine the highlight capability of HD Flexo and the solid ink lay down capability and print stability of ‘flat top’ flexo plates.

A new standard for flexo plates

Full HD Flexo and HD Flexo are the next steps in high quality flexo printing.

Full HD Flexo is a new process for making digital flexographic (flexo) plates. The improved plates are higher quality and print more consistently than standard digital flexo plates. Full HD Flexo may be implemented without scrapping existing equipment and working methods.

Full HD Flexo is adding perfect ink laydown with the right solid density, vibrant brand colors, supreme platemaking consistency and the only fully digitally controlled platemaking workflow available in industry.

Finally, a valid alternative for offset and gravure

The quality of offset and gravure printing has always been somewhat of a Holy Grail for flexo. But, with HD Flexo and Full HD Flexo, the gap is closed. Bringing consistency, vibrant colors and increased print quality, Full HD Flexo raises the industry standard in flexo printing.

Flexo printing can now compete with offset for quality labels and with gravure printing for flexible packaging. In addition, digital plate exposure ensures greater consistency in plate production and in printing.


Full HD Flexo Benefits

  • Smoother, sharper images with an expanded tonal range
  • Bright impactful solids and a wider color gamut
  • Improved results achievable with existing printing equipment
  • Industry standard quality supported by all major plate vendors
  • Suitable for labels and tags, flexible packaging, corrugated and carton print
  • Full HD Flexo extends the boundaries of flexo printing for flexible packaging. Depending on the screen ruling used, Full HD Flexo has different capabilities and benefits.

    When printing with screen rulings between 110 -130 ppi, Full HD Flexo improves the quality of solids and whites, print consistency, press speed, and job changeover. Existing presses and anilox rollers can be used.

    When using screen rulings of 130 – 150 lpi, Full HD Flexo enables the conversion of gravure work to flexo printing. Good image details and contrasts, highlights to zero and smooth vignettes can be achieved. Spot colors can be produced with higher vignette quality. Full HD Flexo combined with screen rulings between 150 lpi and 250 lpi is the perfect solution to move gravure work to flexo. The print quality is stellar: excellent details, brilliant colors and smooth transitions to zero.
