Marshall Hinds congratulates DuPont Advanced Printing for the installation of its 1500th DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST thermal flexographic plate processing system.

Twenty years of continuous thermal processing improvements allow newest generation of Cyrel® FAST processor to achieve even lower VOCs

WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 3, 2019 – DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) is celebrating the installation of its 1500th DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST thermal flexographic plate processing system.

“Nearly 20 years ago DuPont revolutionized flexible packaging with the introduction of the first thermal flexographic plate and processing system, named FAST because of how quickly a plate could be processed and ready for press,” said Sam Ponzo, Global Business Director, DuPont Advanced Printing. “Since that time, DuPont has been at the forefront of developing successive generations of equipment that provide better plate processing, higher reliability and even lower emissions. This 1500th installation is testament to the quality and value our systems bring to printers and trade shops worldwide.”

The current generation of Cyrel® FAST systems have reduced VOCs by more than 98 percent versus solvent-based systems as well as greater uptime, thanks to lower maintenance requirements and remote diagnostic capabilities not available on previous generations.About DuPont Electronics & Imaging.
