Engraving specifications of volume, cell shape and cell counts for laser engraved ceramic anilox rolls are virtually endless with current engraving technology. Regardless of the market, the majority of printers, converters and box makers continue to use engraving specifications that are over 20 years old.

Do they work? Of course they do. But is there a better way?

Print quality, process efficiency and profitability are all very good reasons to investigate, test and implement alternative engraving specifications, if there is value in doing so.

Key learning outcomes from this webinar:

  • New understanding of the anilox roll for what it is and what it does
  • Vital engraving tolerances and efficiency clarification
  • Why consider changes? Print Quality, Process Efficiency & Profitability
  • Investigation of proper engraving specifications; volume, cell shape and cell count
  • Practical testing of new technology; anilox, ink, plate, mounting tape and substrates
  • Continuous graphic improvement
