The flexographic printing machine has developed rapidly, not only the technical breakthrough in the plate and ink, its own characteristics are the important reasons to attract users.
1. The machine structure is simple, so it is easy to operate and easy to maintain. The price of the same functional flexographic press is about 30-50% of the offset printing press or the gravure press.
2. The material adaptability is strong, from the plastic film of 0.22mm to the corrugated board with 10mm thick can obtain the satisfactory printing effect.
3. Small print force, about 19.6-39.2 N/cm2, especially printing with corrugated paper, which cannot withstand excessive pressure.
4. The cost of printing is low, mainly due to the low cost of the machine, low cost of the printing process, low cost of the printing process, and 30-50% of the production cost.
Good printing quality. The ink – roll ink – roll system can not only simplify the structure of ink – losing system, but also realize the quantitative control of film thickness. The breakthrough of the technology of the photosensitive resin plate has greatly improved the resolution of the printing plate and the reproducibility of the nodes (which can reach 1-95%). Flexo printing can achieve 300DPI color level manuscript printing, printing effect can be compared with offset printing and gravure.
Now we designed new satellite flexo printing machine for better and frequently use. The main advantages of satellite flexo printing is the high accuracy and high speed of registration.
After use of ceramic anilox roll to control the amount of ink accurately, Color saturation condition is observed per square meter is only about 1.2g ink. Gravure printing requires 3g/m2 or even higher. The article data show that 4~6g/m2, so the cost will much expensive than flexo type. Another advantage is to make users use less electric energy. Usually
a 8 color flexo type, under the premise of speed 300m/min, the power used by the electric heating method is not more than 80KW/Hour. But other printing type usually require more than 150kw/ hours of energy consumption, or even higher.
On the other hand, there are more demand of soft packaging, Flexo printing applications expanded rapidly, film / mold labels, /RFID labels, film flexible packaging, high-grade cigarette and cosmetics paper packaging, color corrugated cardboard boxes, lifestyle paper products.
