AVCE direct engraving material is specifically designed for state-of-the-art laser engraving systems, like those manufactured by Stork Prints. Processing plates and sleeves digitally eliminate the need for film processing, exposing, traditional solvent wash and long drying times. Added benefits include better quality re- production over longer runs, simple changeover, reduced errors, fast turnaround, more economical and more environmentally-friendly plate production. AVCE is a true polymer material so preexposure (required with photopolymer) is not required. This amazing new material is immediately ready for engraving. AVCE lets you control the engraving parameters that affect dot shape and support, producing precise results which can be changed to match printing requirements. The ability to directly engrave AVCE impacts all three dimensions of the image being reproduced into the printing plate. Plate relief becomes more shallow and stable since AVCE can be engraved precisely in the third dimension with up to 12-bit digital resolution. The parameters of total relief depth and dot sup- port within the plate are not fixed as with UV-exposure. They are operator controlled and adjustable to the density in the design. At the same time, AVCE direct engrav- ing material provides optimum reverse depth in the image without the need to adjust overall plate relief. The Benefits of Direct Laser Engraving are Extraordinary theDiffe rence!
