FLEXO Magazine : December 2013
FLEXOGRAPHY: + The ARTof the corrugated printer The SCIENCE of the flexo rollers It takes more than ink on a press to deliver the impact and emotion designed into today's packaging. The artists of flexographic printing know that variation in temperature, humidity, substrates and a host of other conditions will affect the quality of their work. They have an eye for consistency and the insight to know that the cleanliness of lines, the accuracy of colors and the softness of feathered shades can make or break a press run. When these elements are addressed and the presses are finely tuned, the craftsmen running them can create masterworks. To stay profitable, you know your flexographic presses need consistent uptime and higher speeds. The anilox rollers and other components that keep the substrate flowing through your presses are only as good as the science behind them -- the science of precision: Balanced and matched rollers, an absolute necessity. Cell geometries engineered to make the most of ink using precise volumes and line counts. And all produced by skilled technicians who build to exacting OEM dimensional and TIR specifications. When the rollers are right, there's nothing that can stop your presses. When the artistry of printing and the science of rollers find balance, the result is a beautiful and profitable outcome.
