New Standard in Flexo Plate Making
More than 70 years of experience in machine construction and in the graphic industry have been brought into the design XPose! FlexLine. Precision engineering combined with state of the art laser technology with fiber-coupled laser diodes stands for the highest reliability in plate making and lowest cost in maintenance and operation of the equipment.
- fleXtreme! optic for multiple resolutions up to 5080 dpi
- Highest output standard in industrial applications with up to 4-5m2/h (43.1 - 53.8 ft2/h)*
- No loss of speed with any plate thickness up to 6.35 mm
- Easy loading and unloading
- Not depending on particular formats
- Fully automatic calibration during exposure
- Also suitable for letterpress / dry offset plates
*depending on plate material used
Easiest Handling and Highest Productivity
The unique patented combination of inside and outside drum technology allows easy and quick operating. There is no need for tension rails or time-consuming taping of the plates onto the drum since the plates in any size or thickness are static. Even printing plates of 50 x 80 inches can easily be loaded or unloaded by the operator.
XPose! FlexLine guarantees the highest productivity. The output speed is constant, regardless of whether you expose 1.14 mm (0.045 inches) or 6.35mm (0.250 inches) plates and regardless of the resolution, be it 2540dpi or Full HD 5080 dpi.
Full HD Flexo Included
The standard equipment includes a dual optic system. XPose! FlexLine enables the user to make exposures in full HD with 5080 dpi or with standard resolution 2540 dpi by a simple click of a button - XPose! FlexLine makes things easy for you. Other resolutions are available upon special request, i.e. 2400/4800 dpi as dual optic or 4000 dpi as single optic are optionally available without extra charge.
X!Mask for Outstanding Quality
The X!Mask Software developed by Lüscher Technologies AG automatically recognizes surfaces or small dots or lines. It fully automatically generates structures or microcells on the surfaces and thus allows higher density values in solid prints. The operator is free to configure both the shape and size of the microcells. Highlight dots as well as fine lines can be identified by the software and are automatically assigned broad shoulders. The software is independent of the RIP and runs fully automatically on the output computer.
Fully Automatic and Continuous Calibration
XPose! FlexLine includes the unique Continuous Calibration Technology (CCT). During the exposure, the performance of every laser is monitored and automatically adjusted if necessary. Costly inappropriate exposures can thus be eliminated.
Fiber-coupled Laser Diodes
XPose! FlexLine is equipped with fiber-coupled infrared laser diodes with extremely long service life. They guarantee up to 15’000 exposure hours and provide the highest production reliability. The performance of the laser diodes is permanently monitored and the user is automatically notified, should there be any drop in performance. If a laser diode fails, it can be replaced very easily.
fleXtreme! Optic for multiple resolutions
The fleXtreme! optic is an in-house development by Lüscher and allows the selection of any desired resolution. The changeover is fully automatic and tailored to requirements. This means that every job could be exposed to any resolution.
