FLEXO Magazine : April 2012
PDF Editor Enfocus PitStop users worldwide will benefit from significantly more accurate and flexible PDF preflight and correction when Enfocus releases PitStop Pro and PitStop Server 11 in Hall 8B, Stand A-23. PitStop Pro 11 will give its customers the ability to use smart values to check and correct a PDF; while PitStop Server 11 users can enjoy a completely hands-off, new level of automation. In the latter case, PitStop Server pre- flight settings and values can be driven by job-specific information such as JDF or XML job tickets. PitStop 11 also brings smarter text editing. For instance a handy “Find and Replace” text tool allows PitStop Pro users to quickly find text and immediately replace it while maintaining the PDF’s existing format. Text is also automatically re-merged on a single line, if needed. This will significantly improve ease of use and editing capabilities. Press Portfolio HP will demonstrate several new presses at drupa as part of a full portfolio of packaging solutions. The new port- folio, shown in Hall 4, Stand D 60-9 , features an HP Indigo WS6600 Digital Press compatible with a broader range of synthetic substrates, as well as HP Scitex FB7500 and FB7600 Industrial Presses that have a new white ink option for corrugated packaging. Scheduled for commercial availability in late 2013, yet shown at drupa, the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press is a roll-to- roll digital press designed primarily for flexible packaging. It features 30-in,/762-mm media width and 44-in./1,100-mm re- peat length to accommodate most flexible packaging format sizes. With up to seven-color printing, including white ink, and printing quality that matches gravure production, the press can meet brands’ stringent color and quality require- ments. The HP Indigo 20000 runs at 88.6 linear feet/27 linear meters in five-color mode (full process color plus white) and at 147.6 linear feet /45 linear meters per minute when run- ning in Enhanced Productivity Mode. An in-line priming unit on the press helps to ensure compatibility with nearly any standard flexible packaging substrate from 10 to 250 microns thick. Materials printed on the press are compatible with dry lamination and comply with food packaging regulations when used with good manufacturing practices. The sheet-fed HP Indigo 30000 Digital Press offers a 29.5 x 20.9-in./750 x 530-mm format size compatible with existing offset printing presses used for mainstream folding carton applications. Scheduled for commercial availability in late 2013, the press offers proven HP Indigo print quality with up to seven-color printing on carton stocks up to 600 microns thick. The press can run up to 4,600 sheets per hour in Enhanced Productivity Mode and 3,450 sheets per hour in regular four-color process printing. Food Packaging Press The new Crystal 808, which will be launched at drupa, is the latest central drum flexo press version, designed by Uteco to meet the needs of the flexible packaging world. The Crystal is designed for short runs and with fast changeover. Importantly, the changeover operations can be carried out while the press is running with the complete safety of the operator in mind. In addition, the patented Kiss & Go automatic printing pressure makes the Crystal a modern and high perfor- mance flexo press. The demo model, on display in Hall 3, Stand E-20, will include that technology, as well as the Click & Drag registration setting. This means no waste with the new, efficient on-press technology. Uteco will be holding live print demonstra- tions of the new Crystal Press twice a day throughout drupa. Also showcased will be Uteco’s SmartMatch color proofing system. 58 FLEXO april 2012 www.flexography.org UTECO SmartMatch® Genetic Innovation in Converting www.uteco.com REFEREN CE COLO R FI RST PRINTED RESU LT SPECTROPHOTOMETER SmartKitch® D ATA TRANSFER INK FORMULATION FINAL PRINTED RESULT: M ATCH COLOR
