The advantages of PremiumSetter and Direct Flexo

Two-step process

The direct laser engraving of a ready-to-print elastomer flexographic printing form takes place in a single step. The high-energy fiber laser creates the three-dimensional relief in just one work step and is easy to operate, even for non-experts, after a short briefing. After engraving, the cleaning system uses a soap solution and a brush system to remove the remaining rubber dust and other dirt particles from the plate and then dries it with warm air.
