Added earlier this year, the system permits OEC to produce seamless photopolymer printing sleeves directly from computer data. OEC president Jack Schloesser says, "For several years we have searched for a system that would produce photopolymer plates without the typical problems of light scatter and emulsion shift associated with film. We analyzed every system available and determined that digilas offered us greater flexibility along with the cost and time- saving advantages of automatic balancing." The digilas system is distributed in North America by NAPP Systems (San Marcos, CA).
Oskosh, WI-based OEC Graphics is reported to be the first in the U.S. to install the digilas® computer-to-plate system made by Schepers of Germany.
