    Flexo Capping Resin Improvement v. Cost

    Right on! Thanks again. My apologies for not clarifying the first go-round. But we still got to the goal of putting my mind at ease. Agreed, getting the process down is better than getting the fancy-schmancy broad brush to make things "better". Once we know our process is correct, then we can...

    Flexo Capping Resin Improvement v. Cost

    Thank you for your responses Gordo. This really puts my mind at ease. This may be. Though I may have some misinformation or may need to read up more. I was told capping plates would widen exposure latitude and give less distortion on the printing surface. Allowing for deeper reliefs and less...

    Flexo Capping Resin Improvement v. Cost

    Good Day, In my facility, we produce 0.112 plates and do 90% linework and 10% screened work @ 55LPI on 300 annilox (depending on graphics, then it can go to 85LPI on 600 annilox). We consistently hold a 4% dot. We can push for 3% if need be. and 99% of our art doesn't call for 2% dot. Capping...

    PressCheck Compare Software

    Good Day, I have a customer that states when we send them a finished product, they compare it in an automated system that checks it against the master, digital copy. The two images are compared and show a 'sort of' negative visual of the inconsistencies in print v. master. I have searched all...

    Epson Surecolor P9000 Bad Print Nozzle

    Thank you for the reply. I did another disassemble and cleaning today and tired flushing the lines a bit. All inks are great except light cyan. looks like I will have to get that new printhead. The good news is, at least I know how to install it myself.

    Epson Surecolor P9000 Bad Print Nozzle

    Good Day, I am reaching the end of my wits. I have an Epson Sure Color P9000 that had a Light Cyan printing poorly. This, in turn, made all my prints come out reddish. I did what I could to try and bypass using this one nozzle since it was the only one that was bad and all other nozzle checks...

    Anilox Question

    Excellent. Thank you so much for this info, Cornishpastythighs. When he told me this, it made sense. It was just after years, I have never been told this info in that way and just wanted to make sure. add to that, that 99.999% of our jobs are on 300 anilox. So I've never really been told that...

    Anilox Question

    Quick question... I work in the world of Flexo. My ink technician tells me if I put PMS371 on a 600 anilox, it will never come out to be a full PMS371 and will always look light no matter how much he tones the ink. He says that we will only be able to use 300 anilox to get darker colors to...

    Prepress Camouflage Pattern

    gordo, Yes, understood. ... I think (99% sure). In my reply, I was talking about screening as in screening the plates during prepress. But as M@ck confirmed, I will not screen the plates. The plates will be a solid and the ink technician will adjust the tones to match the expected outcome.

    Prepress Camouflage Pattern

    M@CK gordo, Yes we mix in house. Okay. please confirm if I am hearing this correctly. I take PMS427 and use that as my base. I then overlay screens of PMS428 and 429 on top. I will have to use my digital preview to get the best estimate for my screens. Then during prepress, I will not perform...

    Prepress Camouflage Pattern

    M@CK, If printed using the PMS colors only, then no, they are not set to be screened. They are 100%. I did do a RIP test preview to see if I knocked back the colors to 80 or 90%, considering dot gain would fill it back to 100% but the preview still gives me a significant stroke, therefore I...

    Prepress Camouflage Pattern

    gordo, I have considered this, but with all three colors being PMS I was fearful of the outcome. I felt one screen overlay would have more control than three. Especially when I considered repeatability. I have proposed this idea to the customer and told them we could run another press test, but...

    Prepress Camouflage Pattern

    I have added images of what I have so far. 1 is a screenshot of the original pattern. 1 is a screenshot of the trapping And 1 is a PDF showing the comparison by the customer. But unfortunately, the comparison is only a screenshot vs. print.

    Prepress Camouflage Pattern

    Good Day, I am a flexo graphics coordinator. 90% of our work is linework and some screenwork. Sometimes we will get process print jobs, but not a whole lot. I have a customer that wants a camouflage pattern on their product. The design sent to me has the pattern in 3 separate GREY PMS colors...

    Print Films on Desktop Printer

    Thanks to all. What I ended up doing was getting 8.5x11 films from Ryonet and purchased a WF-7620. This does exactly what I need. To be able to print small slug-ins for our print production. The prints are dense enough for our exposure unit to produce plates. In the end, turns out my two big...

    Print Films on Desktop Printer

    Scratch that... Looks like what Repro_Pro suggested will fit into our budget. Now I just need to research if this will actually do the job. Thanks all.

    Print Films on Desktop Printer

    Tim-Ellis, This works just fine. for our large films. What I am looking for is a smaller desktop printer that will do the same job on an 8.5x11" film so that we do not have to waste 44" for one small slug-in. Similar to what Repro_Pro suggested. But the machine Repro_Pro mentioned is a bit too...
