Flexographic printing is a method of direct rotary printing using molded printing dies (or plates) made of rubber or photopolymer. In a typical flexo printer design, there are multiple wheels that work in unison to pick up ink from an ink well, deliver the ink to a printing die, and roll the ink onto the product being marked.
Flexo printers are easy to install on any production line. They can be friction driven, where the print wheel only turns when it is in contact with the material being printed, or power driven to maintain the exact speed of the production line whether the printer is on- or off-line.
Advantages of Flexo Printing
- Excellent quality reproduction of logos and text, adding value to your product
- Simple and economical to maintain compared to ink jet printers
- Printing dies are easily changed for different production runs
- Use specialized inks for printing porous or non-porous surfaces: metals, rubber, plastics, textiles, paper, and more
