Date:2018-11-07 Views:21
Packaging application
Thanks to its unique technical characteristics, flexographic printing has gained the most successful application in various packaging markets. From the perspective of application at home and abroad, it mainly includes the following aspects:

Label printing
Label printing is the fastest growing field of flexible printing. The growth of label printing mainly comes from pressure sensitive labels, which are rapidly replacing die-cutting stacking, direct printing and other technologies. In the field of consumer goods printing, the shift from pressure sensitivity to in-die labeling and thermal shrinkage will promote offset printing, embossing and screen printing to flexo printing, thus promoting the development of the Flexo Printing Machine industry as a whole. When the pressure sensitive trademark is transferred to the trademark, the printing process is correspondingly turned to UV or water-based flexographic printing.

Soft package
About 20%-30% consumer goods in the US market appear in the form of flexible packaging. According to the survey, flexo printing accounted for 75% of the soft packaging market of film materials in the United States in 1996 and 85% in 2000. Flexographic printing has been the preferred choice for flexible packaging in the US printing industry. As flexographic printing is the mainstream in North America's soft packaging industry, the growth in this area means the growth of flexographic printing.
At present, in the domestic market, the applicable products are very wide, including liquid soft drinks, dried foods, etc. Especially dairy products and fruit juice drinks are in great demand, and the packaging requirements are also high: they meet the requirements of environmental protection, pollution-free and recyclable. As a kind of liquid milk packaging, roof bags have increased rapidly in recent years, and will grow at a higher rate in the future.

High grade packaging
Improvement and development of flexo printing technology and supporting technology, such as direct plate making, high quality UV ink, high precision mesh roller, servo motor drive technology, make the original one-stop production, with comprehensive cost-effective advantages of the unit flexo printing machine in the high-end market, plus flexo printing production mode with the improvement of printing quality. Enhanced environmental protection functions, shortened downtime, integration of various printing and processing processes, and increasingly accepted by printing enterprises. At present, many enterprises have become flagship in the fields of cigarette packs, intelligent labels, self-adhesive and composite sheets, leading the development trend of the industry.

Corrugated box preprinting
With the improvement of people's living standard, color corrugated boxes are used more and more widely in commodity packaging. Packaging boxes are not only beautiful, but also environmentally friendly. A printing press in Sichuan has successfully developed corrugated cardboard pre printing technology. The factory mainly uses the 6-color satellite Flexo Printing Machine imported from Italy. The width of the machine is 1200 mm, the maximum length of printing repetition is 1000 mm, the printing speed can reach 250-300 m/min, and the output per shift can be converted into 110,000 cartons per day. The machine is suitable for printing on 70-350 grams of composite materials, such as coated paper, white paper, cardboard and other composite materials. Its water-based ink is the only non-toxic ink approved by the American Drug and Food Association.

China's flexographic printing technology and Flexo Printing Machine is in the ascendant stage of development. We believe that with the rapid development of China's packaging and printing industry, flexo printing technology will become the fastest growing printing mode in packaging and printing industry like Europe and the United States.
