Solve the Ink Equation by Slaying the Three-Headed Monster of Inefficient Print

Join Adam Bland of Quantum Ink Co as he opens our eyes to the “Three-Headed Monster of Inefficient Print” and how we can use ink as a tool to slay the beast.

Adam will dive into what he has deemed the “Ink Equation.” This is a simple way to connect the dots and variables of flexographic printing to the ink formulator for optimal assistance in the overall process of printing quality and efficiently.

He will cover in depth the unique specifics of ink, such as polymeric structure, pigment selection, additives and how each component contributes to overall performance. During the explanation of ink components, he will take a close look at the on-press variables related to ink that matter most. These include drying speed, color accuracy and re-wettability, along with end product requirements tying all this together to the Ink Equation.

Lastly, Adam will conclude by connecting all things to what has been deemed the Exponential Theory of 98/2, your numbers and how they are directly affected by ink performance.
