Recent major advances in flexographic printing have made this technology the ideal solution for areas in which other systems previously had the upper hand. These include printing on fabrics and mesh, especially glass fibre plastering meshes, materials which make high quality printing especially challenging.
The standout features of flexographic printing on mesh materials include high speed production, which is fully automated once the system has been set up, and is effectively maintenance free. This feature, combined with the option to use a variety of types of ink – including eco-friendly water-based inks – also results in considerably lower printing costs.
Another advantage of flexographic printing is its versatility, since it is quick to install on existing production lines, with a large range of customisations and enormous versatility in adapting to changing printing requirements.
