Processing Equipment Flint Group has filed a patent application for this innovative tech- nology, a combined exposure with UV LEDs and conventional exposure with UV tubes. To benefit from this new technology two types of nyloflex® NExT Exposure units are available. nyloflex® NExT technology – Products Compared with round shape dots, from traditionally imaged digital plates, flat top dots, with precisely reproduced surfaces, provide all the benefits linked to this geometry: • Tremendous improvement of ink transfer and laydown in solids, up to 25 % • Extended gamut due to the reproduction of finer highlights • Low dot gain tolerances – “ Flat Top Dots” are less impression sensitive • Virtually 1:1 image transfer Why flat top dots and surface screening? Printing Plates All nyloflex® Digital plates can be used with the nyloflex® NExT technology. First print evaluations with nyloflex® ACE Digital, nyloflex® FAB Digital and nyloflex® FAC Digital plates demonstrate excellent results. • nyloflex® NExT Exposure F III Mid size exposure unit Format 920 x 1200 mm (47.2 x 36.2") • nyloflex® NExT Exposure F V Large size exposure unit Format 1320 x 2032 mm (52 x 80") • nyloflex® printing plates High quality solid photopolymer plates for all flexographic applications Available in thicknesses from 0.76 mm (0.030") to 6.35 mm (0.250") and formats up to 1270 x 2032 mm (50 x 80") In addition to the general benefits of using flat top dots, the nyloflex® NExT technology offers significant advantages: • nyloflex® NExT can easily be implemented in an existing digital workflow, with no additional processing steps (such as film lamination) necessary • No additional consumables required (no inert gas, no film), thus avoiding all risks and extra costs • Compatible with every standard prepress software and HD Flexo • High level of UV emission improves reproduction of finest relief elements • Excellent repeatability because of constant UV output, even over a long lifetime • Suitable for all standard digital plates in all plate formats and all plate thicknesses • nyloflex® NExT for In-The-Round (ITR) photopolymer sleeve processing in planning Why nyloflex® NExT technology? 2011-09 nyloflex® NExT April 28–MAy 1 | MArriott MArquis & MArinA | sAn Diego, CA Are you Going to “The FTA” This Year? www.flexography.org pA rti CipAtionAwArDsnetwork ing e DuCAtionACColADesbusiness
