Plate cylinders provide the basis for high-quality flexo printing
MECA Solutions provides flexo printers with consistent plate cylinders
By: MECA Solutions
Plate cylinders are crucial to the flexographic printing process as the base component for consistent web performance. Plates attached to the plate cylinders transfer inked images directly to the substrate.
"We manufacture different configurations of flexo plate cylinders to meet a variety of customer needs," explains Tim Olson, sales manager at MECA. "The bottom line is these must meet tight tolerances in order to produce the consistently high-quality printing our customers expect."
Types of flexo plate cylinders
MECA Solutions offers different configurations of flexo plate cylinders, each of which can be swapped out for cylinders of varying diameters depending on the application. The attached plate is inked by an anilox roller and transfers images directly to a substrate passing between the plate cylinder and the impression cylinder.
