Print geeks, dot worshippers, nerds... call us what you will, but APR's Technical Solutions Group (TSG) is asking questions and finding answers to bring new ideas to current flexo processes. You'll see some our recent blog posts are centered around these research projects.
During the week of June 5th, the TSG gathered at APR's Glendale Heights headquarters to discuss and carry out testing on a few common (and a few not-so-common) flexo questions...
- What happens if digital flexo plates are main exposed under water?
- What is the dimensional effect of excessive dryer heat on flexo plates?
- How does exposure bed temperature effect plate polymerization?
- How does excessive heat effect UVA lamp light output?
