Imaging digital flexo plates and sleeves on the CDI

The digital flexo plate has a mask layer – sensitized to the CDI’s laser light – on top of its surface. After imaging, this mask takes the function of the traditional film negative. Through the integration of the image carrier, a digital flexo plate has sharper image definition and steeper relief shoulders than conventional plates produced with film. Image deterioration by UV light absorption and scattering in the traditional contacting through vacuum sheet and film is totally eliminated. The CDI technology provides a major breakthrough in enhanced output quality and consistency, with reduced overall process cost.
