Contact Originators Invests In Esko Technology

Flexographic plates producer, Contact Originators, Dukinfield, England, has invested in a third Esko CDI Crystal XPS imager and exposure solution to support its move into the flexible packaging and label markets.

The purchase takes Contact’s investment in its 32,500-square-feet site in Dukinfield to more than £5m since moving to the facility in March 2021. 

The CDI Crystal XPS will be installed shortly in a dedicated production hall for flexible packaging and label plates. It is expected to be fully operational before the end of April, and provides the company with three inline flexo workflows for efficient, integrated and automated platemaking.
