I would like to ask some insight to flexo guys in PR.
Are there anyone tried to use Kodak RIP and imager as CDI for flexo plate making?
The reason why I'm interested in is because, Kodak Maxtone CX with Hyperflex dots looks very similar to Esko HD screening. But Esko HD Screening, only work for 4000dpi. Also, Esko takes one hell of price for upgrade optic and software, if you decide it so. So, if any flexo plate makers who decided to stop upgrading Esko's workflow and stuck in 2540dpi and Esko software like version 10, like me..., I think it would be good alternative for the latest flexo solutions like surface patterning(SID), and good highlight dots. AFAIK, there is one important condition which is flat top dot capability. Let's assume that the first dot value in 175lpi is 1.2%.
What do you think?
