Flexcel NX plates Polyester backing thickness

Hello everyone I have a question that might sound dumb but I am going to ask it anyway. We are using 1.14mm NX plates and are having problems with distortion. I think the problem is because of the number we are using in the formula for the thickness of the polyester backing of the plate. I have look...

Continuous roll plate making

I am looking for some information on how should I prepare plates for a continuous roll job. I have heard the plate should not be a regular rectangle, but not sure how and at what angle the plate should be cut. Any help is very much appreciated.

Re: Techkon or eXact

Yes we are buying brand new. Techkon is offering a better price compare to eXact. I am just wondering in terms of quality of the device are they equal or if there are any concerns about the workings of any of them.

Thanks

Techkon or eXact

We are looking to buy a spectrophotometer for our press room and I was wondering which one do you guys recommend.
I have narrowed things down to Techkon and eXact. Do any of you have any suggestion on this.

Thanks

digicap and non digicap on the same plate

I was wondering has anyone been able to image a Kodak NX plate with digicap and non-digicap elements on the same plate.
Is it possible to do and if so how?

Re: Printing on Silicone coated paper

the front colors are black and yellow. The back color is just black. Regarding priming it, I think primer will not stick to the silicone coated surface of the paper, so that is not going to work. Using Corona might help but I am not sure, I have to test it when I get a chance. We have thought of pri...

Re: Kodak Staccato NX Advantages

I have done quite a few Staccato NX jobs and it is a very effective screening for getting rid of moire. It also helps with getting very clean highlights and extends the gamut that you can print with. The downside is that your prepress guy should know what he is doing. This screening is very sensitiv...
