Esko has announced the addition of the new CDI Spark 2420 to its family of CDI flexo plate imagers. The compact system, which has been designed for narrow web label converters, combines a different image size with better plate material flexibility.
Esko Digital Flexo senior product manager Jan Buchweitz said the CDI Spark 2420 fits into the company’s portfolio that includes the CDI Sparks 1712, 2120 and 2530.
"It provides a more cost-effective solution that better fits plates for those customers that would previously have considered the larger CDI 2530 as the most suitable option," Buchweitz said.
Designed to image plate sizes up to 609mm x 508mm, the system handles a wider range of plate materials, to address the tag and label market’s increasing demand for quality flexo and a diversity of printing applications.
The materials include digital flexo plates, chemistry free film, digital foil-based letterpress plates, digital metal-based letterpress plates and digital silk screens.
The CDI Spark 2420 is also available with the choice of Optics 7.5, Optics 10 or Optics 15.
