Increase the Speed!

By Pamarco

In order to understand what is necessary to improve press speed, it is helpful to step back and remember the big picture. If you look at print growth over the years, the real issue with press speed has simply been a lack of technology. As knowledge and machinery abilities have increased, so has press speed. The machines coming out now are not as gear-driven as the presses that came out in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.

Tools of the Trade: Plate QC

By Catherine Green, All Printing Resources

Plates are an essential part of the flexographic printing process. The plate delivers a precise amount of ink to the substrate exactly where it is needed. Such a critical piece of the printing process must be measured and controlled to deliver consistent results. Selecting the correct plate measurement tool and implementing plate QC is essential to success in the pressroom. Let’s take a look into what tools are needed for accurate platemaking:

Better Medicine Labels: Get It Right The First Time

By Michael De Bari, Technical Account Manager, Schawk, Australia

With the global pharmaceutical space undergoing drastic change, current and new healthcare brands will need to achieve both accuracy and efficiency with the new labelling changes. Brands owners who embrace these changes will benefit from the mandated transparency to help ensure consumer safety and patient compliance – patients who understand timing and dosage will ultimately take their prescribed treatments.

A Revolutionary Reinvention of Anilox Ink Transfer

By Jeanine Graat, Apex International

In flexographic printing, the anilox surface where ink meets plate has always been one of the prime limiting factors in print quality, press speed, and workflow. “Apex has met that challenge head-on by reinventing the very concept of ink-to-plate transfer”, says Nick Harvey, Technical Applications Director at Apex, describing the continual improvement and growing success of GTT since its introduction in 2007.

The condition of the anilox roll can also play a role in chamber leaks. If the roll lacks a dead band, ink will build up there and contribute to end seal failure. Chips on the ends of the anilox rolls can also create ink buildup and compromise the integrity of the end seals.
Mind Your Graphics: Labeling Requirements & Regulations for Package Printing (Part 2:2)

by Catherine Haynes, All Printing Resources

In the first part of this article, I talked about the first layer of defense everyone should use when opening an art file – preflighting. Some solutions are very intuitive and act as a guide allowing the user to move through the file and correct elements as needed. But preflight is really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to most graphic related regulations. I now would like to discuss using dynamic content to build things like intelligent barcodes and nutritional panels.
The paper reels used in the manufacture of corrugated board exist in a dry state. During production, moisture is added by the application of starch glue. That moisture needs to be removed, because the finished product needs to also be dry. But while it may seem like a simple thing to get the glue on the paper, both the doctor roll and glue roll can heavily influence the manufacturing process.
