Troubleshooting the Flexographic Process

Diagnosing and solving flexographic print defects in a timely fashion is the responsibility of all production personnel. However, many times it can be confusing and difficult to accomplish.

Join Stefano as he conducts this two-part Membernar focused on troubleshooting common flexographic print defects.

  • Part – 1: The Flexographic Ink Metering System is the core component of the flexographic process. This includes how the anilox roll and doctor blade meter the ink to achieve the desired print quality.
  • Part – 2: Flexographic Inks and the Plate Package is focused on the functionality of flexographic printing plates, plate mounting tape systems, plate carriers (cylinders and sleeves) and substrates.

Register once and attend both sessions.
