Analysis on the adaptability of flexographic printing in packaging design it has been several years since the introduction of desk printing machine, and flexographic printing, a new printing method, has gradually been accepted by packaging customers. Therefore, how to design the packaging of products for flexo printing. It has gradually attracted the attention of customers, design companies, plate making companies and printing manufacturers. What should we pay attention to when designing flexographic printing, and how to give full play to the advantages of flexographic printing and avoid the disadvantages of flexographic printing? The following is a brief introduction based on our work experience

in terms of design, the biggest advantage of flexo printing is that there are many color groups in the printing machine, and a variety of spot colors can be selected to complete the design scheme, which is unmatched by offset printing and gravure printing

first, spot color can be used to achieve color stability. What should we do if the impact tester of packaging products breaks down? A lot of trademark printing will be involved, and the color used by many enterprises' trademarks is not one of the primary colors of printing ink yellow, magenta, cyan and black, which often needs to be superimposed with two or more primary colors to achieve, while the use of spot color can be simpler and more stable, because the stability of multi-color overprint effect depends on the stability of each color superimposed. For example, the full page red background color in Xianglian cigarette bag, if you don't use spot color, it will inevitably need to be superimposed with three primary colors to complete, which can't be guaranteed at all in mass printing Affirmation of fatigue life: to prove the consistency of colors under given failure conditions, and cause great difficulties to overprint. By using spot color in flexo printing, we can ensure the consistency of printing effect and eliminate the difficulty of overprint by using spot color ink, fixing the number of roller lines and other means

secondly, spot colors can be used to expand the color gamut space of printed matter and make the picture more colorful. For four-color printing, many colors in nature cannot be printed. The main reason is that the color gamut space is too small. If you want to expand the color gamut space, you can only rely on adding spot colors, and the multi-color group of flexo printing machine is just suitable for this need

finally, the use of spot color can solve many difficult problems, such as small anti white words and thin lines. Anti white words are widely used in all kinds of packaging products, but small anti white words bring great difficulty to overprint. After using spot color, this problem is solved, and there is no overprint problem. For another example, large areas are flat, especially the colors close to neutral gray, such as blue gray, gray green, gray brown, etc., overprint with primary color ink often has a series of problems such as ink bars, color deviation, etc., and the use of spot color printing can well solve similar problems. In short, when designing flexo packaging, the correct use of spot color is a very key aspect

flexo printing has another advantage for packaging design. Its thin line printing effect is very clear, and the ink color is full. In addition to a large number of spot colors, the design of packaging also has a feature that it requires a large number of thin lines and small characters. On the one hand, it can provide users with necessary information, such as origin, date, description, etc., on the other hand, it plays a good decorative role. The thin lines of flexo printing can be printed thinner than the alignment line, and small characters can be printed with words below 4PT font size, and the strokes are clear. For example, the neck label of Maijia beer (original large picture) has many thin lines, complex structure and high definition requirements. When offset printing is used, such small words and lines are easy to break, and the ink color is not thick enough, which can be avoided by flexo printing, which fully shows the advantages of thin lines and fully meets the requirements of gb16491 (1) 996 for the experimental machine

the traditional view is that flexo printing has certain defects in the level performance, which is not suitable for printing manuscripts with rich levels, but this is not absolute. In flexo printing, the dot enlargement rate is larger than offset printing, and the performance in the bright tone part is not satisfactory, but the ink layer thickness is much fuller and more stable than other printing methods. Therefore, as long as a special hanging method is used, the dot enlargement problem can be well solved. Please refer to the above figure. The still life and animals in the figure are not only colorful, but also rich in layers, especially the dark part, which is unmatched by offset printing. This shows that flexographic printing line draft is not only possible, but also has its unique advantages

flexographic printing, like other printing methods, has its own advantages and disadvantages. How to develop its advantages and avoid its disadvantages is what we need to do in each process of design, production and printing. In this way, the gauge held by the extensometer is the reality of the original gauge of the sample in its free state. We need to work together to solve these problems, so as to give better play to the advantages of flexographic printing and make flexographic printing produce more and more exquisite flexographic products
