Production Capabilities - Print and Pre-Press
Our pre-press facilities are impressive and include an artwork studio who manage the client sign-off process with precision and offer full colour Cromalin proofs in order to achieve near perfect colour representation for the approval process. The recent investment of £300k+ in a fully digital workflow including the DuPont™ Cromalin® blue digital proofer, the revolutionary DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST solvent-less plate-making system. Coupled with a new Kodak Thermoflex Mid Platesetter with Hyperflex Resolution Enhancement Software and Kodak Prinergy Evo Powerpack Workflow Software has paid dividends to the pre-production aspect of the process.
Environmentally smart (solvent free) flexographic plates are being produced every 12 minutes improving productivity, durability and image quality. The advanced screening techniques have resulted in huge benefits for our customers. The definition and quality of images are consistently created using Resolution Enhancement Technology. This has enabled us to achieve excellent halftones and vignettes, resulting in the ability to reproduce far more complex designs. Repro Director Robin Barker states "Our aim is to push the boundaries of flexographic print."
Six 8 colour UV Flexographic printing presses run 24 hours a day 5 days a week and can print on 400mm width substrates. All with dedicated finishing/inspection units the multi-skilled production staff are trained to interchange between equipment in order to achieve true flexibility. Two blank label presses complete the production list. The type of work varies from straightforward spot and/or 4 colour process with half-tones and options to add metallic, hot/cold foil, lam de-lam and holographic stamps.
