The CRON HDI Flexo 1600 sets an astonishing new price point for large format Flexo imagers, whilst delivering the same high-quality imaging as all CRON devices. Its unique yet simple design allows minimum handling of the plate material, minimising waste without any compromise in quality. The HDI 1600 covers an extensive range of wide-format applications such as flexible packaging, corrugated and folding carton printing, supporting the common large plate size of 1524 x 1067mm, nevertheless maintaining a convenient compact footprint.

The HDI Flexo 1600 comes with a built-in plate loading platform, automated plate loading further simplifies machine operation. The easy and automated operation avoids plate damage or deflection, while the drum automatically sets clamp positioning for optimum drum balance while supporting thermal film, digital polyester-back flexo and letterpress plates. The HDI Flexo 1600 is an excellent solution for low-cost but high quality plate production.

As with all CRON HDI devices, it is available in three variants with resolutions from 4000 to 9600 dpi and an exposure speed of 1.3 to 3.2 square metres per hour, depending on the options chosen.
