Improving Color Across Suppliers

By Shoshana Burgett, Director of Corporate Strategy for X-Rite Pantone

 
The process of bringing a product to market is complicated. Like most things in life, the world of our imagination is broader and brighter than what reality will allow.

Ink Transfer Technology — Dot gain and ink film thickness

By Daetwyler

 
Whether it’s the most complicated printing job or the simplest line work, controlling the Ink Film Thickness is very critical when it comes to providing a high quality in a repeatable print job.

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.

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.
