Precision Plate Cutting and Mounting
Precision proofing and plate imaging is just the beginning in our production of perfect flexographic plates. CTI is leader in utilizing the most advance technologies available in our production lines.
Starting with advanced CAD software instructions each plate panel is bevel cut to specification on our state-of-the-art Kronsberg Digtal Cutting Table to ensure the best possible adhesion for all plate backer substrates used. It also provides faster turn around on all jobs.
For corrugated packaging projects a custom die is created specifically designed for the press the plates will run on. Each press is unique and has a range of variables that need to be planned for in advance. Partnering with CTI provides the needed expertise and material knowledge to ensure that your projects meet your needs and expectations. No matter how complex the requirement our advanced process control ensures the absolute best results to save you time and material costs.
Mounting is done for a variety of backing materials depending on the press requirement. Plate mounting with pin point accuracy is assured using our advanced Heaford plate mounting flatbed tables.
Equipped with enhanced digital vision systems that optically read register marks the system can place precise positioning marks on the backer material . Using advanced CTI developed software the mounter is fed job layout instructions based on prepress information that accounts for plate characteristics, press requirements and other critical job aspects.
