DuPont Hosts Moscow
Flexo Printing Conference
DuPont Packaging Graphics recently held its bienni-
al Flexographic Printing and Technical Seminar in
Moscow.The event was organized with 3M Industrial
Tapes and Adhesives Division and Esko Graphics, and
attracted more than 150 attendees from more than
70
companies.
The theme of the seminar this year was
Quality
Worth Examining Closer
and it seemed to have
broad and strong appeal,” said Gerold Zadorov, East-
ern Europe Sales Supervisor, DuPont Packaging
Graphics.
Dupont said interest was especially high in the
choices now available in flexo technology including
the option of engineered surface plates or modified
workflows with new exposure units. Both options
have a fit in already-established workflows and give
qualitative leaps in solid ink densities (SID). In addi-
tion to higher SID, there is a significant reduction in
visual graininess that improves the appearance of the
solids and overall visual contrast of the printed re-
sults.
Pascal Thomas, Digital Flexo Product Manager at
Esko, presented a large range of advanced Flexo solu-
tions that encompass HD Flexo for smooth vignettes
down to zero, clean line work, and improved ink lay
down, as well as Pixel+ for higher solid ink density. In
addition, Thomas outlined the power of full HD-
Flexo, which combines Inline UV2 (digital main ex-
posure inside Cyrel
®
Digital Imager/CDI) and HD
Flexo.
Yaroslav Khodataev,Technical Service Supervisor at
3
M Russia, explained the broad range of performance
mounting tapes by 3M, and presented the new class
of automatic splicer tape. Moreover, he announced,
that the Cushion Mount™ tapes by 3M are now certi-
fied for HD Flexo.
