Flexo Quality Consortium (FQC)
The Flexo Quality Consortium (FQC), acting as a select standing committee of the Foundation of Flexographic Technical Association (FFTA), aims to provide the industry with a better understanding of the factors controlling the quality of a flexographic image.
FQC projects can run for months or years and investigate selected printing variables in flexographic printing technology. FQC actively participates in the global graphic standards committees and associations in researching and representing the flexographic printing process and Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances (FIRST).
Volunteer members on the FQC hail from all walks of the flexographic industry—material, prepress and equipment suppliers, academics, converters and CPC representatives. Meetings are held monthly online and occasionally on-site at FTA events like Forum, or other industry events.
