Improved Plate Quality for Improved Print Quality

About this event

There’s little debate that the quality of the flexographic plate is the most critical variable related to the quality of the flexographic print. Add to this the growing realization that plate exposure is considered the most critical variable related to flexographic plate quality, and it’s plain to see the potential for significant improvements in flexographic print quality.

Aimed at premedia companies and converters, this webinar will address the following topics:

  • Common Flexographic Print Defects
  • The Latest in Screening Technology
  • LED vs Bank Light Plate Exposure
  • Relief Height Variation on Plate
  • Dot Size Variation on Plate (Min Dots and Larger Dots)
  • Real World Print Results

Mark Samworth and Julian Fernandez will kick off the webinar with an in-depth look at the technology. We’ll follow that with a recording from a live town hall meeting in May 2021 featuring four of North America’s top premedia companies. Asked to describe the technology that has been most critical to their business in the last 5 years, the premedia professionals did not hold back. Join us to hear their unsolicited responses.
