The exposure technology for producing Flat Top Dots and surface screening, nyloflex NExT, enables an optimized ink lay down on press exploiting the potential to improve the highlights and fine vignettes. In flexible packaging, printing plates exposed with this technology allow excellent ink transfer, particularly in solids. In corrugated printing, fluting will considerably be reduced. nyloflex NExT provides significantly improved reproduction quality and long-term stability.
The new nyloprint NExT exposure technology for a precise reproduction of finest relief elements and gradations is targeted to the high-end segment of labels, tubes, cups and can printing as well as the security and banknote printing.
