The Power of Digitally Printed Packaging

The Power of Digitally Printed Packaging

Digital Printing and more specifically inkjet printing technology has made vast advances over the past two decades. We can comfortably say almost everyone in today’s world uses inkjet technology or comes across an inkjet printed product. It has made serious inroads into various printing applications, at times revolutionising the applications themselves staying true to its disruptive nature. Paper printing for home or office use, Graphics, Coding & Marking, Ceramics, Textile, Glass are some applications/industries where inkjet is competing with conventional process’s or has replaced the conventional process. Digital printing is becoming increasingly important as business’s are changing their strategies from mass production to mass customisation. However, digital print is only just beginning to infiltrate the packaging market and demonstrate its true potential for seamless and personalised advertising, both on and offline.

Getting the Best Results from Your LED Exposure System

Getting the Best Results from Your LED Exposure System

Once you understand the output characteristics of your exposure unit and the peak absorption of the stencil system you wish to use, you can better gauge its compatibility. Figure 9 shows the typical absorption curves for the three types of stencil systems (Red: Acrylate sensitizer – Combined with diazo in dual cure emulsions; Blue: Diazo – Alone in single cure emulsions; Green: SBQ – Photopolymer emulsions.) Provided that an exposure system generates sufficient energy at the wavelengths where the stencil systems are reactive, the crosslinking necessary to harden the stencil will take place.
