UK based prepress company Hamillroad Software has announced that DuPont Cyrel EASY Plates have been approved for use with its Bellissima Digitally Modulated Screening (DMS).
Hamillroad CEO, Andy Cave says: “During the R&D phase for Bellissima DMS, we involved a number of suppliers within the flexographic printing industry. During this process, we were able to test their technologies and find the best solution partners to take Bellissima DMS to market.”
Using Bellissima, high-quality prints equivalent to 350-450 lpi are produced with unrivalled image reproduction and no colour shifts on mis-registration. By utilising fixed palette inks the screening delivers smooth flat tints and moiré free prints. Vignettes fade smoothly to nothing enabled by printed highlight dots as low as 1.0% and shadow dots up to 99.5%.
Cave continues: “Working with the team at DuPont, we were able to achieve excellent results on press. We have been able to fine-tune the solution to ensure the best possible results for the printer, and in addition to this, we have also been able to reduce machine issues, including: bounce, barring, and slur, in some cases eliminating them completely. We believe the technology solution is transformative and will enable flexographic printers to push the envelope of what is currently possible in flexo.”
Bellissima DMS is distributed by Apex International, a global anilox and metering solutions provider.
