how would this formula work for a cyrel flexo plate? would the length of the blanket include the bars which means the plate length includes the area that goes under the clamps? also for the b variable, do you add the mylar thickness, that goes under the flexo plate, to the plate thickness? and finally the diameter of the cylinder can't be considered as a true diameter since the plate doesn't extend from one end all the way to the other like in flexo, as in offset you have the clamps... can someone please explain how this is done?
