A highly productive scanner for converting film into a digital workflow. Produce an exact replica of the original media by copying it dot-for-dot, without introducing moiré or artifacts.

Our Purup-Eskofot Escoscan 2636 copy dot scanner will allow you to scan reflective art, litho film or line work and digitize the files to be DCS 2.0 or Tiffs. Originals up to 26”x35”.

Kodak Flexcel NX Flexographic Plates

The NX plate is the most unique plate on the market today! Press crews swear by its reliability, consistency and longevity. Great looking fades and better ink densities while actually using less ink! Customers are enjoying better looking product, greater shelf impact and fantastic blends. The absence of oxygen and engraving the surface of the dot is resulting in some unbelievable printing.

Flexcel NX Plate Dots Vs LAMS Plate Dots

Benefits of Flat Dot Structure
  • Wider impression latitude
  • Faster make ready
  • Reduced plate wear resulting in longer life
  • Increased process printing, less spot colors
Issues with the traditional flexo plates:
  • Compressed tonal range
  • Compressed color gamut
  • Bump curves required
  • Separating tone work from solid and line work
  • Square pixel to round laser beam
  • Oxygen inhibition
  • Rounded dot structure
  • Difficulty in color matching
  • Shortened plate life
  • Using more than minimum number of plates
  • Confusing sustainability messages
Image Quality
Traditional CTP, cannot retain highlight dots without image correction. Also, the overall image looks posterized with shadow tones plugging up. With dot correction, resulting image will clip or will be flat due to limited tonal range.

Flexcel Plates Image Output Quality
With Splash’s expertise and Kodak Flexcel NX plates, you will be able to print with the richness that the designer had intended.
Image Transfer

Splash can help make dramatic quality improvements in the flexo pressroom:

  • Can use all 256 gray levels up to 300 lpi
  • Expanded tone range
  • Expanded color gamut
  • FM screening is practical for flexo

Flexcel Plates Image Transfer from file to plate

Offset CTP Services up to 58" x 80"

Computer to Plate: Image plates up to 58” x 80” directly from files.

We have been providing offset plate making services since 1996. We act as back up plate supplier to many high volume shops as well as primary supplier for many operations that have multiple locations.

Our services reach from coast to coast.

Proofing

Proofing G7 certified proofs at multiple locations simultaneously allows all people involved in the approval process to attend the same “virtual” meeting. Eliminating time consuming variables in the process such as shipping significantly expedites time to market/press. Regional and national brands have found remote proofing to be of immense value.

Additionally our Fuji Final proof allows contract dot proofing on virtually any substrate with great PMS and metallic color matching capabilities. For clear substrates we have the ability to lay down opaque whites providing an excellent representation of the printing process.

Digital Asset Management

The traditional methods used to manage graphic arts workflows have changed drastically as a result of the introduction of digital asset management. This technology now lets authorized users at any location anywhere in the world, work on a project for design, production, management, graphic editing etc. in real time. It is not just an archiving tool but it is a vital part of the workflow.

  • Centralized Data Solutions
  • Final page files distributed to stakeholders anywhere with internet access.
  • Consistency (most updated version at all times)
  • Flexibility; 24/7 access
  • Efficiency – quick retrieval
