BRYAN, OH | Anderson & Vreeland is now offering AVCE, a new high-performance direct engraving material specifically designed for laser engraving systems manufactured by Stork Prints and other leading companies. AVCE is imaged by direct laser ablation in a one-step process said to deliver impressive results, including excellent ink transfer, dimensional stability, and durability; approximately 30% faster processing; and plate resolution to 200 lpi for flexo and 250 lpi for letterpress.
AVCE lets users control the engraving parameters that affect dot shape and support, producing precise results that can be formulated to match printing requirements. The ability to directly engrave AVCE impacts the three dimensions of an image reproduced onto the printing plate. Plate relief becomes shallower and more stable since AVCE can be engraved precisely in the third dimension with up to 12-bit digital resolution.
