Films for analog and digital flexo printers
A rather sizeable portion of the flexographic plate market is still analog. While Fujifilm is able to help any analog printer move toward digital, we are also committed to the long-term manufacture of matte films for the analog flexographic market – for both sheet and liquid; 4 mil and 7 mil. For smaller formats, some flexo printers find that Fujifilm’s non-matte films – with there whisper matte coatings – work wonderfully at a lesser price.
A long standing leader in graphic arts films, Fujifilm will continue to offer matte films while other competitors have chosen to discontinue the product line. Manufactured for all the common image setter wavelengths, Fujifilm matte films will work wonderfully in every common brand of imaging device including AGFA’s Avantra series. Talk to your local Fujifilm representative for more information.
In flexo, it is not really a question of “if” a flexo printer will go digital but “when”. Even though Fuji still makes a full line-up of matte films for the flexographic market, we can help our customers take the required steps toward going digital. Available in a variety of sizes, Fujifilm works has access to a two major brands of CTP devices.
Designed to image, rinse and go directly to press, Fujifilms Flenex technology is the epitome of digital flexo plate imaging: complete 3D dot control will allow sharp process images on the same plate as solid images. The plate does not require “processing” of any sort – no solvents, wicking material or UV bulbs. Just rinse and go with less than 10 minutes of total labor per plate.
