Indian printer Zircon Technologies has installed the DuPont Cyrel Fast 2000 TD processor workflow with DuPont Cyrel Easy flexo plates at its platemaking facility in Dehradun.
Prasenjit Das, sales manager for South Asia at DuPont Advanced Printing, said: ‘Solvent handling was one of the pain areas for Zircon and DuPont Advanced Printing worked with the customer to address the need to achieve high quality printing in quick turnaround time without the solvent. DuPont Cyrel Fast thermal workflow uses solvent-free thermal processing to produce a press ready finished plate in one hour or less.’
The Cyrel Fast 2000TD platemaking system uses dry, thermal technology to process high quality photopolymer plates, thus eliminating all solvents and aqueous solutions from the plate room. This process does not require the time consuming drying steps of the solvent workflow, enabling rapid processing, cost savings, sustainability and improved press performance.
Das added: ‘The Cyrel Fast 2000 TD contributes towards developing higher plate quality, easier workflow and improved machine serviceability. Plates processed in the 2000 TD processor have better cleanout and relief depth uniformity while providing excellent fine line and dot holding. For Zircon, it’s a perfect fit with the Cyrel EASY plate portfolio.’
