Digital Flexographic Printing Plates Offer Key Advantages

For OUTBOUND home page, go to

Packaging converters get better print quality, more precise color gradation and a wider tonal range with Repro Center's digital plates.

Repro Center, pre-press division of Lebanon-based Unipak sal, has upgraded both equipment and software to produce improved digital flexographic printing plates, also known as clichés. Converters use these plates to produce high-quality, printed flexible and corrugated packaging.

Size & Print Quality

Digital printing plate size has increased from 42 x 60 inches (106.7 x 152.4 cm) to 50 x 80 inches (127 x 203 cm), enabling Repro Center to service larger printing machines, such as pre-print machines that reach 200 cm of repeats with one plate. Repro Center is the only house in Lebanon and the Middle East region that can supply plates of this size.

With Sambaflex screening, customers can achieve fine gradients fading to zero, sophisticated picture highlights with no dot limits and more contrast.

Higher Productivity

Repro Center has increased its capacity of imaging from 2.5 m2 / hour to reach 4.0 m2 / hour.

Reduced Film & Trim Waste

Repro Center produces less waste in digital plate production, as no film is used and the large raw material sheet size generates less trim waste.

Interested parties may request a quotation online for flexo digital printing plates.
