It is often thought that the skill of a printing press operator is linked to his ability to solve problems. It’s actually more important to make sure these problems don’t happen. And this is achieved with an in-depth knowledge of the variables and components that interact in the printing process.I covered this in the article […]
How the new CTV method for colour tone value measurement works and what are its advantages in the flexo process.Read my article that was published on Converting magazine.
Natural Plate Compensation (NPC) curves are a new and simplified method designed to determine and apply plate compensation curves within any flexographic workflow. This method provides smooth transitions and equidistant tone values directly within the compensation curves by making best use of measurements according to ISO 20654:2017 – Graphic technology – Measurement and calculation of
Measurement is the basis of process control. The measurement of dot area coverage or dot percentage is fundamental to define the characteristics of our printing system, to calculate compensations of tonal values for plate making and, finally, to control the production.In 2017, a new method for the calculation of dot area percentage was introduced. ISO
What are the correct units of measure to describe the engraving specifications of anilox rolls?I hope this short video serves to clarify this aspect with correct terminology.
A short video on the reasons why in flexography it is necessary to use specific angles for the halftone screens.
