What are the characteristics of the narrow-width flexographic printing technology of the carton?
Dec 18, 2018

         Currently, folding carton printing is a hot spot for flexo and offset printing to compete for market share. In the past, flexo printing was generally only suitable for flexible packaging and corrugated box printing because it was not as good as offset printing, and was excluded from the folding carton printing market. However, with the improvement of equipment and the advancement of technology, the quality of flexographic printing has been greatly improved. For small/medium folding cartons, narrow and medium format flexo presses are gaining a stable market share. Currently, 90% to 95% of offset printed jobs on the market may be converted to flexographic printing in the future.

         Flexo printing has the following features on a printed folding carton:

         (1) Flexo printing allows multiple processes to be operated online. The printing, die-cutting, slitting, laminating, forming and other processes can be combined to realize the input of the roll material in the foreground and the finished product packaging box in the background.

         (2) Flexo printing requires less surface smoothness of the substrate. People can use a cheap recycled paper or cardboard to print the folding carton, which can save 20% ~ 40% of raw material costs.

         (3) The water-based ink used in flexo printing is non-toxic and non-polluting, which is conducive to environmental protection.

         (4) Reduce the probability of occurrence of waste sheets. Some people have done the same, the probability of bad film in flexo printing and folding carton is 8% lower than other printing processes.
