FLEX³PRO is an affordable, easy to use Flexo Plate reader that can help you to immediately see, manage and interpret any changes to the parameters and thus achieve a superior quality output.
The state of the art illumination, pickup optics and camera technology of the FLEX³PRO flexo plate reader delivers extremely sharp images. The shoulder portion of the dot is clearly separated from the surface of the dot. Dot printing surfaces with sharp corners that are not artificially rounded due to overexposing can be measured accurately.
The FLEX³PRO software FLEYE³ offers a function to directly compare images, enabling you to see directly the impact of any changes of process parameters. Images captured with any FLEX³PRO device can be loaded and then resized with a resolution of 12700DPI, rotated, corrected in brightness and finally overlaid.
The minimum dot of the flexo plate making process defines the range of values and the perceived resolution of the printed product. But what is the minimum dot? What should the minimum dot look like? How can it be defined and how can it be consistently maintained from one plate to the next, from one day to the next? Looking at the dot shape lets us understand immediately that the dots are not the same, even though the view from top would lead us to think that was the case. The dots differ in shape whilst having an almost identical printing surface. The FLEX³PRO is used to capture the top view and the 3D image by a simple click of the mouse, without the need to re-position the plate.
The mechanical dot size, the contour (shape of the flexo dot) and the ink coverage across the dot itself will often lead to changes in the printed colour.
The FLEX³PRO is a precision device designed to measure and monitor the changes in colour due to mechanical problems of plate, press or ink.
