FLEXO Magazine : August 2011
Certainly, today’s printing press manufacturers are clearly aware that the payback periods of their presses get shorter and shorter. Collectively, all their efforts contribute to optimizing UV-flexo quality, to compete with offset and gravure, which is precisely the interest of their clients who want to expand their activities within affordable conditions. Proverbial as it may sound, brand owners and label printers/converters alike are reporting that even the smallest screen-dot can be maintained by their presses during the UV flexo printing process. They are achieving bold colors, held in tight register, across a variety of applications and strengthening brand image and identification every step of the way! n About the Author: Denny McGee is president, MPS LLC, Brookfield, WI.
