From October 05 to 07, DuPont Image Solutions (DuPont) will participate at the Virtual Fall Conference 2020 organized by FTA (Flexography Technical Association).
The event is a virtual replacement for the in-person version and the focus of this edition is to prove that the collaboration between customers, printers and suppliers is essential to deliver the perfect package — the perfect vision — to shelf. “During the event it will be possible to see how design, combined to prepress best practices, color management, plates and pressroom technologies collaborate to achieve that perfect vision”, explains Gabriela Kim, Americas Marketing Manager.
DuPont will participate both in the virtual exhibition, with a booth, and with a presentation at the Virtual Conference. In the session ‘Evaluation, optimization, control: the complete plate making package’, Allie Ayers, Technical Application Specialist for DuPont™ Cyrel® NA, will present ‘Problem solving in the flexographic plate room’. “Often, issues occur in the plate room that later relate to issues in the pressroom. This can cause down time or over-correction on press, resulting in a loss of money and time. Identifying and understanding some of the common problems can help eliminate issues before the plates even go to press”, states Allie. She will also present several common plate-related problems, give insights of its possible main causes and share corrective actions to avoid them.
In the booth, visitors can make video conferencing — on-demand or with a scheduled appointment — with DuPont experts and learn more about the complete portfolio of plates and solutions with emphasis on:
• Cyrel® EASY BRITE screens that deliver the right combination of high opacity, reduced mottle and reduced graininess in flexo applications, for head-turning whites and precise spot color reproduction.
• Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow, an innovative, highly productive plate processing technology that uses solvent-free thermal processing to produce a press-ready finished plate in one hour or less.
As a platinum sponsor of Virtual Fall Conference 2020, DuPont recognizes the opportunity to reach FTA’s audience—a demographic of technically minded, innovative flexographers, at a time when collaboration and connection are incredibly important, yet extremely difficult to achieve. “Sponsors play a key role in building and executing a fully realized FTA conference,” says Mark Cisternino, FTA president. “Now, more than ever, we are grateful for DuPont´s support in delivering a rewarding Virtual Fall Conference 2020 to our attendees and exhibitors.”
