Graphic Republik and Flexolaser partner to showcase the latest in Prepress production solutions

London (England), August 29th, 2009 – Visitors to Label Expo in Brussels will be able to see the latest in Prepress production technology at the Flexolaser stand, Hall 11, Stand Q95.
Front end file preparation, from colour editing through to high end trapping and final layout step and repeat will be demonstrated using the MaxPro suite of applications whilst a range of Flexolaser digital imagers for both Flexo and Letterpress plate production will be on show.

The MaxPro suite provides an alternative solution for the entire label pre-production process. MaxPro provides editing, colour correction and high-end trapping, which includes transparency trapping tools unavailable in other applications to ensure fast and efficient preparation of label designs. MaxStep, used as an automated CAD-based workflow, a manual layout facility or an auto step & repeat function creates stepped, final plate layouts, quickly and efficiently. Some of the new features within MaxPro to be shown at Label Expo include a contone trapping function, composite/separation postscript export, full ppd functionality, monitor profile and CFF2 CAD file format support.

Flexolaser, a leading innovative manufacturer of laser engraving machines for flexographic photopolymer plates with global expertise, will present their small format laser system – the ‘piccolino’. The ‘piccolino’ is the perfect machine for label printers with in-house plate production whilst for flexo-trade shops, the piccolino can be easily implemented as an additional device. The vacuum drum is designed for plates sizes up to 635 x 500 mm with exposure taking only 12 minutes at a resolution of 2540 dpi.

User-friendly features such as sliders for easy adjustment of vacuum surface and plate clamping systems will also be on show. For digital production of letterpress plates, the piccolino is provided with a magnetic vacuum drum. Well known for always being one step ahead in the market, Flexolaser will reveal a novelty at Brussels: a big sensation coming along in a handy format. Flexolaser’s novelty will convince you not only because of its intuitive handling but also because of its outstanding cost-effectiveness.
