DuPont Packaging Graphics (, one of the world’s leading suppliers of flexographic printing systems in digital and conventional formats, grabbed the attention of the printing world recently at the drupa 2012 print media fair in Duesseldorf, Germany, with next-generation DuPont™ Cyrel® plates, equipment and workflow solutions that optimize quality, productivity and sustainability.  

“Advances in the technology for equipment and plates, especially over the course of the last 15 or so years, have resulted in significant improvements to the quality, productivity, and sustainability of flexography,” says Tracy Lunt, global technology manager, DuPont Packaging Graphics.  “DuPont creates solutions that meet these needs simultaneously.  Flexo is now not only globally recognized as a fully competitive printing technology, but is the most popular packaging printing process in several segments around the world. Flexo is no longer an alternative; it’s a solution.”

One of the show highlights was the DuPont press briefing which featured a keynote address, presented by Matthias Heinzel, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics, on “The State of the Package Printing Industry: Global Trends, Market Needs and New Technologies.”

“Flexo technology has seen tremendous improvements to satisfy ever-increasing quality needs, and can now deliver the outstanding print quality that gravure is known for at speeds that comply with the shorter lead times necessary to remain competitive in today’s market,” says Heinzel.  “As part of our approach to constant and inclusive innovation, DuPont Packaging Graphics is continually transforming new sustainability legislation and market-driven changes into technological solutions. Doing so not only helps our customers maintain a competitive edge, but also helps us contribute to our companywide commitment to ensure sustainable growth and reduce the environmental footprint of the supply chains in which we operate.”

DuPont launched 11 new products at drupa, none of which were concepts or prototypes. In response to growing demand for higher solid ink density (SID), DuPont showcased new digital plate technologies - DuPont Cyrel DSP, Cyrel FAST DFP and Cyrel FAST DFR - that achieve higher solid ink density while maintaining high resolution, low dot gain and excellent run length. DuPont also showcased new equipment technologies: DuPont Cyrel FAST 3000 TD system, DuPont Cyrel DigiFlow 2000 EC and an enhanced complete Cyrel FAST round workflow to demonstrate highest-quality precision printing for sleeve processing.

DuPont Packaging Graphics is one of the world’s leading suppliers of flexographic plate-making systems in digital and conventional formats, including the DuPont Cyrel brand of photopolymer plates, Cyrel FAST processing equipment, Cyrel round sleeves, mounting and finishing products.
