The UV flexo printing is a type of relief printing originally
called flexographic printing.
It originated in the United States in the early 1920s
and was not developed because of
the toxicity of the aniline dye ink used.
Since then, ink manufacturers have begun to use
acceptable colorants, and in 1952 at the 14th
packaging seminar in the United States was
renamed the Flexographic Process. In the 1970s,
with the advancement of the materials
industry, especially the advent of polymer resin
plates and cermet anilox rolls, the
development of flexographic printing has
made a qualitative leap. It has become
the fastest growing printing method in the world,
especially in the United States,
and both the manufacturing technology of
printing presses and the application
technology of flexo printing represent the
highest level of flexographic printing.
At present, the flexo printing machine with
UV ink curing system installed abroad is
increasing, and the existing flexo printing
machine is constantly modifying the
UV ink curing system. The replacement of
water-based inks and solvent-based inks
with UV flexo inks has become a trend,
and has been widely used in wide-format and
narrow-width flexo presses. Undoubtedly,
the development prospect of UV
flexo printing technology is very good.
The promotion and application of domestic
UV flexo printing technology needs to be based
on our national conditions and product needs,
as well as the perfection of domestic equipment
and equipment. With the increasingly strict
environmental protection requirements and quality
requirements, it is believed that in the
near future, domestic UV flexo printing technology
will more and more development in China.
