UK industry leaders adopt HD Flexo

Cheshire Anilox Technology is the latest operation in the UK and Ireland to recognise the business winning potential of Esko’s HD Flexo technology and achieve certification.
The manufacturer of superior laser engraved ceramic and chrome-plated Anilox rolls was established in 1992 and it is its high-end Proflo engraving that has been awarded the prestigious certification for achieving exceptional print quality.

“Proflo is a high precision engraving specially designed to work with new HD plate technology,” says marketing director Sonia Arcos. “We are delighted the high quality possible has been recognised. It features a new improved cell profile for a more consistent ink lay down while also eliminating the chance of uncontrolled dot gain. This high release cell offers as much as 15% additional ink compared to conventional engravings enabling the printer to produce high resolution images with outstanding depth of colour for greater shelf impact.”
“Specific standards need to be met to achieve a higher quality result and this is where HD Flexo adds real value,” explains Paul Bates, Esko business manager UK & Eire. “The process requires a great deal of commitment from both suppliers and Esko but the result is consistency and predictability that delivers the right print, every time. This vendor, partner and customer standardisation provides a new horizon in flexo quality.”
