CRON-ECRM to Introduce Blackwood UV Plate
September 6, 2017 By PrintAction Staff
CRON-ECRM at PRINT 17 will debut and demonstrate the Blackwood Digital-UV plate. In addition, CRON-ECRM will be producing all of the offset plates being run on the RMGT 9 Series 8-up press on an adjacent booth.
The CRON Blackwood Emerald-UV low chemistry plate, explains the company, is designed to minimize the consumption of chemicals and water for UV exposed plates. With a wash-out bath, CRON explains the plates are press ready in a matter of seconds, with dot reproduction from 1-98% for either stochastic screening (20 micron) or conventional screening up to 200 lpi. Run length is rated for up to 50,000.
For UV ink printing, Blackwood offers UV double coating plate, HUV whose run length is over 50,000 and dot reproduction 1-98% at 350 lpi. For normal ink printing, HU-PXX the run length can go up to 100,000 and dot reproduction 1-98% at 350 lpi.
At PRINT 17, CRON-ECRM will also be running the CRON UVP4664G+X+ UV CTP solution, which is geared to commercial printers who have a half-size or a full 8-up press. This fully automated system will feature a Multi Cassette loader. With CRON’s magnetic linear drive platform, integrated online punch and dynamic drum balance the registration accuracy is up to 0.01mm and the tonal range is 1-99% in either conventional or stochastic screening.
The CRON HDI-600S Flexo CTP will also be on display, an imager designed for label printing running digital photopolymer plates, ablative films, and polyester-based letterpress plates.
