Zircon Technologies India Ltd., one of India’s largest printers for high quality labels, has installed the DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST 2000 TD processor workflow solution for use with DuPont™ Cyrel® EASY flexo plates. With manufacturing units located in North, South and West India, Zircon owns an in-house plate-making facility.
Solvent handling was one of the pain areas for Zircon and DuPont Advanced Printing worked with the customer to address their need to achieve high quality printing in quick turn-around time without the solvent. DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow is 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.
With nearly two decades of knowhow, Cyrel® FAST 2000TD is a state-of- the-art plate-making system that uses dry, thermal technology to process high quality photopolymer plates, thus eliminating all solvents and aqueous solutions from the plate room. This process does not require the time consuming drying steps of the solvent workflow, enabling rapid processing, cost savings, sustainability and improved press performance.
With its new ergonomic and compact design, the Cyrel® FAST 2000 TD features several cutting-edge tools and technologies that contribute to higher plate quality, easier workflow and improved machine serviceability. Plates processed in the 2000 TD processor have better cleanout and relief depth uniformity while providing excellent fine line and dot holding. For Zircon, it’s a perfect fit with the Cyrel® EASY plate portfolio.
