The surface unevenness of the printing material is compensated by the ideal shore hardness and the resilience characteristics of the AFP-SE/DSE plate. The plate‘s dimensionally stable polyester base sheet compliments the printing quality achiev-able with the AFP-SE/DSE. The wide exposure latitude of the AFP-SE/DSE plate ensures that image elements like tones and isolated lines are optimally anchored even with a relief depth of 3 mm. At the same time, intermediate depths form evenly and the relief is produced with steep shoulders.
Its optimized balance of solid ink density and highlight dot printing produces incomparably good ink coverage with low dot gain in the mid tones and brilliant highlights. This can be achieved at maximum printing speeds. The AFP-SF/DSF plate can be used for most flexographic applications with particular suitability for flexible packaging printing on film and paper with solvent or water based inks. The ASAHI AFP-SF/ DSF elevates printing results to a new level of quality. The superb ink transfer and excellent resolution offer crucial advantages for quality-conscious printers.
The improved mechanical stability and excellent ink transfer behavior in combination with low highlight dot gain, is making the SH/DSH plate most quality printers plate of choice. Steep relief shoulders and good intermediate depths ensure excellent printing results from the very start. The AFP-SH/DSH is primarily used in printing flexible packaging and labels. It’s real strength, however, shows above all with jobs involving difficult tasks to be solved depending which printing application may be required..
