Gallus Screeny digital - imaging by ablation
Screeny digital screen printing plates are coated with an ablation layer (LAMS layer), which is laminated onto the photopolymer. The ablation layer is applied digitally by a point laser. The screen is then exposed, washed out and assembled in the conventional manner. The printing processes remain the same. The aim is to integrate Screeny digital into the existing digital flexographic workflow. The CDI imager from Esko Graphics is typically used for Screeny Digital imaging. Screeny Digital makes it possible to begin CtP with rotary screen printing without the process uncertainties involved in changeover. This removes the need for an analogue film.
