platemaking

At Alpine, we strive to remain at the forefront of digital platemaking technology, utilizing our Cyrel Digital Imager with HD Printing Plates and the Cyrel Fast® platemaking system by Dupont.

Developed by DuPont, a global leader in flexographic technology, Cyrel Fast® empowers Alpine to meet its mission by offering our customers timely and cost effective results while maintaining superior quality control.

Since its inception, Cyrel Fast® has allowed flexographic printing to compete head-to-head with traditional offset and gravure printing.  Because plate processing time is reduced by up to 300%, this Dupont Graphics system provides productive, economic, and quality advantages in label, poly bag, and flexible package printing.  With its dry thermal technology for plate development, Alpine’s platemaking process eliminates the need for solvents and aqueous washouts.
