Hamillroad Software, specialists in prepress solutions for the printing industry, have today announced that MacDermid Graphics Solutions’, flat-top dot experts specializing in photopolymer printing plates for the flexo industry, LUX® ITP™ 60 digital plates have been approved for use with Bellissima Digitally Modulated Screening (DMS).
Andy Cave, Hamillroad CEO comments: "Bellissima DMS underwent various pre-release tests with a number of suppliers within the flexographic printing industry to find the best strategic partners for Bellissima DMS to go to market. The results we have seen with Bellissima in conjunction with MacDermid’s ITP™ plates have been fantastic! In addition to the print quality, the machine issues such as bounce, barring and slur have been reduced significantly and in many cases eliminated.”
Andy Beesley, MacDermid’s Sales Director EMEAR comments: "We are pleased to announce that LUX® ITP™ 60 has been approved for use with Bellissima DMS. Taking advantage of the unique dot profile from the 1:1 mask-to-plate plate imaging process of ITP, Bellissima DMS delivers a level of quality usually associated with offset and gravure, while retaining the cost efficiencies of flexo. The result is a level of print reproduction on both Narrow and Wide Web that is unparalleled in the industry.”
Beesley concludes: "We believe the combination of these ‘best in class’ solutions will bring about a transformational change in the industry.”
