Alternative to imagesetting filmNovadot SureJet: No Process Clear Inkjet CtP Polyester Film for colour separations for Offset, Screen and Flexo applications. SureJet is a high density polyester-based clear inkjet film for computer-to-film digital imaging using recommended inkjet printers. It is ideal for pleasing fullcolour & screen positives in any size, with unbeatable value-for-money. SureJet film is designed to produce high-resolution instant-drying fourcolour plate-ready positives in 2, 4 and 8 page formats, with UV density matching silver-based films. SureJet can also be used for generating negatives. However, the ink consumption is significantly higher than that for making positives. When imaged on high-resolution pigment-based inkjet printers (e.g. Epson Stylus Pro 800 / Epson new generation large format printers , 4450 / 7450 / 9450 / 4880 / 7880 / 9880 series), the patented ink-receiving layer ensures excellent reproduction of 2 98% dots at 2880 dpi, micro-fine lines and perfect solids. SureJet offers the lowest cost computer-to-film solution, ideally suited for commercial printers, newspapers, book & magazine publishers, screen printers, flexo printers and several other applications currently using expensive silver- based films.

HD Flexo:HD Flexo is a new process for making digital flexo plates. The improved plates are higher quality and print more consistently than standard digital flexo plates. HD Flexo may be implemented without scrapping existing equipment and working methods. The quality of offset and gravure printing has always been somewhat of a Holy Grail for flexo. But, with HD Flexo, the gap is closed. Bringing consistency, vibrant colours and increased print quality, HD Flexo raises the industry standard for flexo printing. Flexo printing can now compete with offset for quality labels and with gravure printing for flexible packaging. In addition, digital plate exposure ensures greater consistency in plate pro...
