NORTH ANDOVER, MA – March 16, 2018 — CRON-ECRM, a global leader in CTP imaging solutions, announces that they will be exhibiting at ExpoPrint Latin America 2018, to be held March 20-24, 2018 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HDI Flexo CTP for packaging printers
“This event serves as the Latin American introduction of our newest HDI Flexo CTP,” said Marshall Hogenson, VP Americas Flexo Business Unit. “The HDI 920 with  the new dual clamping mechanism eliminates the need for tape when mounting the plate, even for the smallest partial plate running at the fastest possible speed” he continued. “We and our resellers believe HDI 920 will be a massive success in the narrow web market segment in Latin America.” ExpoPrint will focus on innovations in the package printing and converting market, and CRON-ECRM will be promoting their HDI Flexo CTP product line in the Alephgrapics and Prepress / Lingraf stands.

The new CRON HDI Flexo imager features the latest in state-of-the-art technology including SMFO (Semi-conductor Multiple Fiber Array and Optical Imaging) which allows for perfect imaging at resolutions up to 9600 dpi.
