Diversified Labeling Solutions Expands Capabilities with New HD Flexo Plate Maker

Share Article

Diversified Labeling Solutions, Inc. (DLS), a leading converter of pressure sensitive labels, has announced the addition of its new HD Flexo Plate Maker by Esko.

DLS offers HD Flexographic Printing Plates

"With our in-house HD flexographic digital plate making capabilities, press check approvals go smoothly and client's jobs are in and out of the shop sooner because we're up to color quickly," said James.

Diversified regularly searches out technologies that streamline processes and reduce costs. The company actively investigates and tests each new advancement as it presents itself. James Cirigliano, Director of Marketing, Diversified Labeling Solutions, “We work hard to maintain our industry leading results. One of the newer technologies we had been watching had to do with flexographic printing. It hadn’t seen much change in a long time, but when Diversified learned about an HD flexographic plate maker we immediately started our investigation.” A purchase decision was made as part of the company’s continuing efforts to offer their customers the latest in both technology and exceptional print quality.

Esko’s HD Flexo Plate Maker is raising the standards of flexographic printing and closing the gap between gravure and offset printing by combining unique print screening technologies with 4000 dpi optics to achieve a sharper, more accurate image. With the higher resolution, the optics also deliver more clearly defined, better shaped round screen dots with a higher pixel count. The rounder dot shape keeps them more stable on press, resulting in longer print run yields from a single printing plate—even more so than standard digital flexographic plates. “The plate's super textured surface results in better ink density and color control. With our in-house HD flexographic digital plate making capabilities, press check approvals go smoothly and client’s jobs are in and out of the shop sooner because we're up to color quickly,” said James.

In keeping with DLS's green philosophy, the company determined that HD plate making improved sustainability. Longer runs means less plate washing and water waste. With longer lasting plates, the company also has reduced their plate waste. Diversified’s management team is an active member of the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) and is working with the plate recycling task force to determine the best method of recycling HD plates.

The new HD Flexo Plate Maker was installed in April, 2015. After a short start-up period, it is now providing Diversified’s distributors, and their customers, exceptionally high quality printed labels.
