Identifying & Overcoming Common Print Problems at Forum 2019
Despite flexographers’ best laid plans and adherence to process control, problems still occur. And in a nod to that familiar mantra, “time is money,” it is critical to get back to running the press quickly. Whether these problems are derived from incorrect inputs into the process, or stem from the operation of the press, flexographers must be able to quickly identify and correct.
In Forum 2019’s “The Defectives,” a group of experts in ink, plates, color and production will demonstrate commonly occurring defects such as: incorrect color, incorrect dot gain, poor solids and dirty print. The Defectives will walk through the process of measuring, analyzing, identifying and ultimately correcting the real root cause of each of these defects. Samples demonstrating these four common print issues will be distributed during the Monday morning session.
“The Defectives” will be a single, unified presentation, with speakers applying their expertise to the example defect analysis. Press operators, quality managers and print managers will benefit from hearing from each expert and learning how to “rule out” each potential root cause and determine the real culprit of each defect.
