How to Choose a Flexographic Printing Plate ?
October 5, 2018 | Dr. Dieter Niederstadt

This week KYMC invited AsahiKasei to share about the factors to consider when choosing a flexographic printing plate. To draw a case study demonstrating that choosing the right plate could impact the production efficiencies in terms of printing speed and machine downtime significantly: as much as 53% in overall equipment efficiency(OEE).

During printing as air travels back into the after the ink transfer onto the printing plate, if the blade pressure to anilox roller is too high, this will prevent the air and ink from reentering into the chamber. This will cause an imbalance of air and ink flow, leading to foam generation and buildup at the back blade.
The adoption of Industry 4.0 projects could lead to a 30% to 50 % reduction machine downtime.
