High-quality and reliable printing CTP (Computer To Plate)

Engraving and pre-press for industrial and label printing solutions

Fibre Diode lasers are used to image the printing form by ablating a black mask or by UV-curing directly (with the use of UV-lasers) a photosensitive lacquer.

 

FLEXO market: Flexo plate

Flexo plates

Flexo plate printing forms, commonly used for packaging materials (foil, paper and labels, tissues) can be imaged with the variLEX CTP according to the CTP = LAM principle + UV exposure or with the DLE HELIOS or KRONOS machines.

FLEXO market: Flexo sleeves

Flexo sleeves

Flexo sleeve printing forms are commonly used for printing of packaging materials (foil, paper and labels, tissues) can be used with the DLE devices HELIOS or KRONOS.

Dry offset market

Dry offset

In the dry offset industry (indirect printing (wet in wet) of seamless containers like cans, cups, tubes and aerosol cans) SPGPrints is a market and technology leader in prepress, especially for 2 piece beverage cans. To produce the printing plates either the DLE (direct laser engraving) system “Helios” or the CtP system “variLEX” can be used.

Letterpress market

Letterpress

Letterpress is a printing technique which seems to disappear and is now only seldom used for printing narrow web and labels. Letterpress Plates are thin plates that either have a foil back or metal back. As the metal back plates are the same plates that are used for dry offset printing, the terms letterpress and dry offset are often mixed up. Plates for letterpress can be either engraved with DLE (HELIOS) or imaged using our CTP (VARILEX) devices. 

Rota screen printing market | Rotaplate®

Rotaplate

Rotary screen printing is commonly used with label and narrow web printing used in order to do opaque white, special effects, embellishments and refining. The RotaPlate can be used for this application (plate material that is sealed to an in-the-round printing sleeve after exposing). For imaging and exposing RotaPlate a variLEX or a rotaLEN unit can be used.

Rota screen printing market | Rotamesh®

Rotamesh

A welded in-the-round screen is used by RotaMesh. For imaging and engraving RotaMesh the rotaLEN unit can be used.

Intaglio market

Intaglio

Intaglio is a printing form where the image is deeper as the non-printing part of the printing form. Intaglio printing forms can be imaged using a CTP-device (variLEX) or a DLE (HELIOS/KRONOS) system. Typically intaglio is used for security printing (banknotes, stams, cheques, passports etc.)

Security printing_2
Pad printing market

Pad printing

Pad-printing is used for printing on uneven surfaces indirect printing over pads (works like a cushion), is a market that found its digitalization with DLE and, mostly, the variLEX. Pad printing is used for imaging all kinds of products (toys, remote controls, car industry, promotional articles like lighters, pens, etc.). 

Pad Printing
Digital (Dry Film) market

Digital Film

As there are still applications where the printing form cannot be imaged digitally (DLE or CTP), digital film is used a lot. Digital film is basically a mask layer on top of a transparent foil. The mask layer can be imaged with a CTP device. After the imaging the film is directly ready to use (no washing / developing / drying).

Embossing (plates & cylinder) market

Embossing

For embossing effects in (mainly) paper, hard ‘printing’ plates, sleeves or rollers are used. For sleeves and roller a DLE system is needed. Plates can be imaged with a CTP-device but only a DLE system offers the possibility to do special 3D- effects. Known products where embossing is used are book-covers and posters but also beverage cans can be embossed. 

Options for industrial and label printing applications

State of the art Laser Engraving and Laser Exposing technology

SPGPrints offers simplified, automated, digital and conventional pre-press workflows for flexo, rotary screens, dry-offset and letterpress processes. Digital Pre-press greatly improves throughput: not only are imaging cycles complete within fast time-frames; it is also possible to image multiple plates or screens at once. This means greatly improved handling and logistical efficiencies in your workflow.
