DuPont has installed a Cyrel Fast 2000 TD, solvent-free thermal platemaking system at Comexi’s Manel Xifra Boada Technology Center in Girona, Spain.
DuPont claims that the Cyrel Fast system offers superior productivity and performance while helping to reduce processing costs, processing time, and environmental impact compared to existing solvent-based platemaking methods.
Jan Scharfenberg, business leader DuPont Cyrel Solutions East, said: ‘We are excited to see that customers are now able to experience how quick and easy platemaking operations can be performed at Comexi’s Technology center and in their own operations. Cyrel Fast enables a workflow from file to print ready plate in less than an hour.’
Yago Luling, prepress manager and color specialist of Comexi CTec, added: ‘Following with the turnkey service for the integration of prepress that we offer at Comexi CTec, and taking into account that the option of thermal plates is a very attractive technology for our customers, we are very pleased to announce that within the Comexi-DuPont collaboration framework, we can now have a Cyrel Fast thermal technology processor in our Technological Center in Girona, that will help us in the use and visibility of this technology within the environment of Comexi customers.’
The equipment is the result of more than 20 years of evolution and investment into this platform and has more than 1500 installations globally.
