Helios

The HELIOS Direct Laser Engraving system is a proven solution for producing high quality printing forms for various applications. Different materials can be imaged, like polymer, elastomer, POM,… regardless of its colour. Like every direct laser engraving system of SPGPrints, it uses database driven active 3D RIP system for relief printing forms in order to produce the optimal shoulders of the image. This results in excellent quality without special software tricks. The HELIOS allows a complete digital process with just one step. No solvent processing, no chemicals to be handled and stored. Dry offset and label printers can now produce the highest quality print with a shorter, simpler process with much less chance for errors. Overall response time is reduced for increased flexibility in meeting customer demands with no compromise in quality. Our laser systems are renowned for their stability and excellent reproducibility.
