Charlotte, N.C. -- Bill Poulson, Northeast Technical Graphics Advisor at Harper GraphicSolutions, presented a dynamic presentation on press optimization during the Flexographic Technical Association's (FTA) annual INFO*FLEX show at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Entitled "Press Optimization Sets the Stage for Consistency," Poulson's presentation detailed the four key tenets press rooms can exercise in order to obtain the best results from each and every press run:
1. Optimize the press condition
2. Certify the existing anilox roller inventory
3. Employ excellent care & maintenance procedures on a day-to-day basis
4. Enable the ink room to match color in the lab with a Phantom Hand Proofer
Poulson summarized by discussing the time savings benefits press rooms realize when they minimize downtime for color matching.
In addition, at the Harper Corporation of America booth, Tony Donato, Product Development Engineer, greeted visitors and demonstrated a truly unique display: an anilox sleeve with three different families of laser engraving.
The sleeve includes XLT 60 Degree engravings, which are excellent for solid, continuous color or background printing; XLT 30 Degree channel engravings that are terrific for whites and high viscosity inks; XDI Extreme Digital Image engravings, which are excellent for patterns, product "images" and/or one- and two-color printing; and LaserKote engravings for overcoats in varnish and UV.
