Digital MAF Plate Drastically Reduces Fluting
Atlanta, Georgia, USA – MacDermid Printing Solutions announced today the commercial introduction of a new digital flexo printing plate designed specifically for corrugated printing. Digital MAF, MacDermid’s new “”Anti-Fluting” plate has a dot profile that is optimized for post print corrugated, resulting in dramatically reduced fluting – without the use of additional platemaking techniques or exposure systems.
Digital MAF is the latest in a series of recent product introductions from MacDermid that leverage the company’s expertise in dot shape engineering. This unique expertise in flat-top dots allows MacDermid to optimize each plate’s dot shape to match the particular print application. In this instance, the Digital MAF dot shape is designed to minimize the variations in dot compression that arise from the valleys and peaks of the fluted corrugated board structure.
“The corrugated printing market has been crying out for a solution to the fluting problem for quite some time, and we’re happy to deliver a solution that is not only simple, but extraordinarily effective,” said Timothy Gotsick, Ph.D., vice president and general manager at MacDermid. He continued, “Customers who use Digital MAF for their post print corrugated applications will see a dramatic reduction in fluting with the added benefit of being able to produce higher quality print at even faster press speeds than before.”
Digital MAF is commercially available in thicknesses of 0.112 (2.84mm) up to .250 (6.35mm) and in format sizes up to 50 x 80 inches (1,270mm x 2,032mm). For additional information, customers can contact MacDermid Printing Solutions at +1.404.696.4565 or printing.macdermid.com.
