Flexographic printing is a high-speed printing process that uses flexible printing plates made of rubber or photopolymer to transfer ink onto a wide variety of substrates such as paper, plastic, and metal. The process is commonly used for printing packaging materials such as bags, labels, cartons, and corrugated boxes.
In the flexographic printing process, the image to be printed is etched into the printing plate, which is then mounted onto a cylinder. As the substrate passes through the printing press, ink is transferred from the plate onto the substrate using a series of rollers.
Flexographic printing can produce high-quality printed materials with crisp and vibrant colors, sharp images, and excellent registration. It is ideal for printing large volumes of materials quickly and economically.
Flexographic printing is a widely used printing method in the packaging industry due to its versatility, reliability, and ability to print on a variety of materials. It is also an environmentally friendly printing method as it uses water-based inks and produces less waste compared to other printing processes.
