CI Flexo Printing

Flexographic printing machines, commonly known as flexo presses, engage in a printing technique that employs a pliable relief plate to transfer ink onto the desired substrate. Each printing task necessitates a unique set of dedicated plates. It has a central impression cylinder that transfer ink onto various substrates and enables multi-color printing in a continuous, uninterrupted manner. The central impression cylinder plays a crucial role in maintaining precise registration and consistent print quality throughout the process.

Advantages of CI Flexo Printing

CI flexo printing offers several advantages that make it a preferred choice for both small-scale and large-scale printing operations. Some key benefits include:

  1. High Print Quality: CI flexo printing ensures sharp and vibrant prints, even on challenging substrates, resulting in visually appealing packaging and labels.
  2. Versatility: It can accommodate a wide range of materials, including flexible films, paper, cardboard, and non-absorbent materials like metalized films and foils.
  3. Fast Production Speed: CI flexo printing machines can achieve high production speeds, reducing lead times and increasing efficiency.
  4. Cost-effective: With optimized ink consumption and minimal waste generation, CI flexo printing offers cost-effective printing solutions for businesses.
  5. Ability to Handle Complex Designs: CI flexo printing machines excel in reproducing intricate designs, fine details, and vibrant colors, making them suitable for branding and marketing applications.

CI flexo printing process

Flexographic printing presses utilize photopolymer printing plates that feature a reflective relief image of the desired print. The elevated portions of the plate receive ink through an anilox roller, which subsequently transfers it onto the substrate. The key steps involved in the printing process including:

  • Ink Delivery System: The ink delivery system consists of the ink reservoir, pump, and pipes that transport ink to the anilox rolls. It ensures a steady supply of ink and maintains consistent ink flow throughout the printing process.
  • Plate Cylinder: The plate cylinder holds the printing plates and rotates in sync with the anilox rolls. As the substrate passes through the press, the plate cylinder transfers the inked image onto the substrate.
  • Print Unit: The print unit comprises the anilox rolls, doctor blades, printing plates, and impression cylinder. These components work together to apply the desired amount of ink onto the substrate and create high-quality prints.
  • Web Tension Control: Web tension control systems ensure proper tension and alignment of the substrate throughout the printing process. They prevent issues like wrinkling, stretching, or misalignment, which can affect print quality.
