All4Labels Hamburg Boosts Productivity with Automated Platemaking to deliver a highly efficient and sustainable mount-ready flexo plate for the packaging industry.

CrystalCleanConnect was installed in October 2023 at the German label converter to replace a manual platemaking process. At this time, the focus of the prepress department was on flexibility in production and high output through all our different presses as the manual process often resulted in ‘errors and scheduling problems,’ according to Mirco Wilke, head of prepress, flexo printing, at All4Labels Hamburg.
