Controlling the variables in the Pre-press of the flexo process, helps to eliminate variations and printing defects. Direct CTP uses a simple graphic workflow, to process a 1 bit tiff into a 3 dimensional relief image ready for laser imaging into the finished printing form. This ensures no process or operator influenced variation of the digital image through the pre-press process, resulting in exact reproduction of the client image on the finished print form.
CONTROL THE PRE-PRESS WORKFLOW & PLATE-MAKING PROCESS = CONTROL THE PRINTING
So what are the factors which cause changes in the pre-press process and subsequently cause defects in the printing process such as Mis-register & Gear marks
Factors in Pre-press, which can lead to defects and problems during printing
Selection of in-correct plate type or thickness for printing job
In-correct distortion factor of plate
In-correct Dot gain curve
Variations in the multi-stage photopolymer plate making process, leading to deviations in surface finish or thickness of the printing form
In-correct layout of the image
Out-of balance effects of the design
Imaging flexo printing forms using Direct Laser engraving using the FlexoStar laser, eliminates many of these variables and provides FLEXOPERFECT pre-press solution.
