Asahi displays AWP flexographic plates @ Labelexpo Americas
At Labelexpo Americas 2018 (September 25-27, 2018, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois), Asahi Photoproducts, a pioneer in flexographic photopolymer plate development, showcased its AWP family of water-washable flexographic plate solutions featuring Clean Transfer Technology, including its new AWP -DEW plate with washout speeds 2.5 times faster than previous plates, making it ideal for on-demand platemaking and a more efficient flexographic operation in even the busiest plants.
Asahi’s AWP Clean Transfer technology provides a viable alternative to conventional flexo printing plates. Its water washable printing plate technology does not require high temperatures or VOC-based solvents. It provides high register accuracy, making it particularly suitable for printing with a fixed color palette and enabling odorless production. In addition to saving time and money and reducing waste, it also supports energy savings, while assuring exceptional quality and brilliant prints with significant improvement in overall equipment efficiency (OEE) as compared to traditional flexo plates. All of this delivers the most efficient flexographic printing plates in balance with the environment resulting high quality printed materials.
