Presstek – Benefits of waterless offset printing

The chemistry-free waterless Presstek Zahara offset plates

USA • The provider of printing solutions demonstrated the Zahara offset plates live at Labelexpo Americas 2016. They are suitable for the production of labels, packaging, and plastic cards. These chemistry-free waterless plates have been being imaged on Presstek’s Dimension Pro2 CTP system and operated on Codimag’s Viva340 evolution offset press. The live demonstrations provided an opportunity to see how this solution provides a chemistry-free production process for label and packaging converters. Being printed live on the Viva340 was a real customer jobs, an initiative that Codimag has branded AnifloLive. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own PDF files to the booth for imaging Zahara plates and set up the job for production there and then.

The six-color, roll-to-toll Viva340 evolution label press utilizes Codimag’s Aniflo print technology, a keyless anilox offset unit that ensures the printing process is stable and predictable. It is an intermittent press that enables converters to benefit from the simplicity of a flexo solution, the quality of an offset system and the flexibility of a digital press.
