Printing the incredible diversity of flexible packages is really the playing field of flexo and gravure printing. Over the last couple of years, not only the flexo print technology has gained considerable ground in comparison with gravure, mainly in terms of print quality and reliability in higher print runs, but digital printing as well is gaining ground as run lengths drop. From best-in-class matt film for flexo plate production all the way to workflow software and consulting knowledge, Agfa Graphics' portfolio serves thousands of customers.
Traditionally, the folding carton industry typically relies on offset printing, although for some applications flexo is used. For short and medium runs, digital solutions are economically attractive too. This is the arena with often special requirements in terms of CTP solutions including plates for UV applications that do not require baking, the latest plate production technology, color management, and screening. Agfa Graphics' latest offerings play on all these requirements.
Achieving higher quality in corrugated boxes is not an easy thing. You can either preprint the liner board in full color offset before laminating it with the required flute structure. Or you can apply the latest XM -Cross modulation screening technology that actually provides higher color quality and image detail than ever before while printing directly on the finished corrugated substrates. Whichever way you go, Agfa Graphics has expertise and can help you with preproduction solutions. Or even with the latest developments in terms of digital printing.
