CTP can reduce make-ready and waste, reducing raw material, labor and resources to create the same job vs. film and imagesetters.
Bryan, OH (PRWEB) March 19, 2015
A new white paper on “The State of Computer-to-Plate Technologies for Flexography” produced by Anderson & Vreeland, Inc., leading manufacturer and distributor of flexographic plate processing equipment and materials, explains why investment in CTP technology continues to be beneficial.
“CTP can reduce make-ready and waste, reducing raw material, labor and resources to create the same job vs. film and imagesetters,” explains Lee Zerfass,
Digital Business Manager for Anderson & Vreeland. “When you add a workflow, we improve the consistency and speed of how jobs are prepped for press. For higher volume environments, a workflow expedites the time to press, regardless of the operator’s experience level as all jobs are treated the same. Then, by adding the benefit of High Resolution Imaging for instance, at 5080 dpi, the quality of the dots or overall job is improved creating a distinction from the competition,” added Zerfass.
More brand owners are demanding CTP as part of their requirements to capture their business. By having a CTP offering, converters have the confidence plates going to the pressroom are predictable and repeatable, certainly more so then film-produced plates. In contrast, film imagesetters are becoming less relevant to flexographic platemaking.
The white paper explains the added benefits of CTP technologies and, once the decision is made to go CTP or expand the CTP offering, how to proceed. To download the entire white paper for free, visit http://andersonvreeland.com/white-papers.
