Flexo printing

Flexo printing is a rotary letterpress technique. This technique uses a flexible printing form (also called cliché) and liquid UV low migration ink.

Flexo printing is called a relief printing technique because the image is higher on the printing form. The ink is absorbed by the anilox roll and then transferred to the roll on which the photopolymer plate is attached. The excess ink is scraped off the anilox roll with the squeegees.

Flexo printing can be used in various ways. For example, different flexible packaging can be printed on substrates such as: paper, foil, plastic, etc. The possibilities are therefore very diverse.

There are also many possibilities to refine the materials. For example, it is possible to paint prints with various types of (spot) varnish and to use various types of cold foil. This is to give the print a luxurious appearance. Lamination of the printing is also possible. This can be done fully in-line with both matt and glossy laminates of different thicknesses. In this way, the print is completely enclosed.

Flexo printing is known for its flexibility and the fact that it has no registration differences. Different colours are applied separately to the material that is stretched around the central counter-pressure cylinder, so that it always fits well.
