Cellaxy and HelioKlischograph – a duet in perfect harmony
von Ansgar Wessendorf,
When used together, the C500 works optimally with the K500 enhancing the opportunities offered by high-performance electromechanical cylinder engraving with the features of an extremely high-performance direct laser.
Some things are simply made for each other like a duet in perfect harmony. Striking examples for this are the Cellaxy C500 (direct laser engraving) and the HelioKlischograph K500 (electromechanical engraving).
When used together, the C500 works optimally with the K500 and even the K5 Smart, enhancing the opportunities offered by electromechanical cylinder engraving with the features of a direct laser. Benefits include finest HD Gravure quality for linework and contone and an overall installation that is simple to operate and delivers high process stability.
In dual operation, Cellaxy and HelioKlischograph engrave together for one color set. The assignment of linework cylinders and halftone cylinders to the machines is completely freely selectable. This means that the processes complement each other perfectly in terms of their possibilities.
Direct laser engraving
Cellaxy engraved cylinders impress with an excellent linework quality and very fine tonal gradations in the halftone. The features of direct laser engraving with Cellaxy are:
Universal laser platform with high investment security, e.g. HelioPearl ready
HelioKlischographs oﬀer a process that has been successfully established for many years. Due to the half-autotypical reproduction, the halftone reproduction is of brilliant quality. However, the linework and text quality of other processes is not achieved.
The features of HelioKlischographs are:
Fixed cell geometries
Fixed halfautotypical screen structure
