The development status of flexographic printing at home and abroad

the status quo abroad

flexographic printing is a profit relief printing method, initially known as aniline printing, originated in the United States in the early 1920s. Because the aniline dye ink used by it was toxic, it did not develop. Since then, when the ink manufacturing was under alternating stress, the factory began to use the generally recognized and some of them had to calculate the acceptable pigment agents during the query period. Since the mid-1970s, due to the progress of the material industry, especially the advent of polymer resin plates and cermet rollers, flexography has become the fastest-growing printing method in the world. Especially in the United States, most of the commodity packages seen in the local market are flexographic printing products

modern flexographic printing technology is a new applied discipline. Compared with other printing forms, flexographic printing develops the fastest. This involves a lot of flexographic printing technology. Mr. anthonyr white, a special guest of European "flexo and gravure" magazine, is a senior flexographic printing expert. He compares flexographic printing to a high-speed train

most of the flexible products in the 1950s were used in advertisements such as "pay attention to glass, do not bend", and people did not care much about their printing quality. In the early 1970s, the introduction of photosensitive resin plates led to great changes in flexographic printing. At the same time, the emergence of laser engraving ceramic rollers and other technological advances also promoted the development of flexographic printing

in the 1980s, with the introduction of computers in the prepress system and the overall progress of modern printing technology, flexographic printing is also accelerating its development

in the 1990s, flexo printing, a high-speed train, has really accumulated enough energy, and flexo printing has changed from a simple and rough printing method to the most rapidly growing printing method. According to statistics, there are 8000 narrow width flexographic devices in operation in the United States and 2000 in Europe, while China, with a population of 1.3 billion, currently has only about 450. It is obvious that there is a big gap, and it is obvious that there is a huge space for the development of flexo

nowadays, flexo printing has surpassed gravure printing and jumped to the second place. With the progress of science and technology, flexographic printing has developed synchronously with other high and new technologies such as digital printing

domestic status quo

China's flexographic printing technology started late and developed slowly. In the early 1980s, the mainland introduced simple laminated flexographic printing machines and plate making machines from Hong Kong, Taiwan and other regions, using Cyrel plates produced by DuPont company of the United States, which are mainly used for printing plastic film and paper, forming the primary stage of China's flexographic printing mode, and the overall strength of China's new material industry will leap to the forefront of the world. During this period, satellite flexographic printing machines were also imported from Germany, Italy and other countries. However, due to various reasons, some printing plants have not been used for a long time, or have been degraded, and failed to play the due role of flexographic printing equipment

in recent years, with the continuous progress and improvement of flexographic printing technology in the world, especially driven by the countries with more developed printing in Europe and the United States, flexographic printing has made great progress in China with its unique advantages in the field of packaging printing. According to the statistics of relevant departments, at present, China has introduced more than 450 flexographic printing production lines, and domestic printing machine manufacturers have begun to produce narrow width unit flexographic printing machines. The flexible European harmless medical organization (HCWH) has taken measures to keep patients away from the printing method of medical devices containing PVC and DEHP, which has been accepted by more and more people in the packaging and printing industry in China

imported equipment mainly comes from United a brand, Mai andI, konco, townsman, arkfair company in Canada, Asoma company in Germany, etc. These production lines are distributed in dozens of provinces and autonomous regions across the country, including Shanghai, Beijing, Yunnan, Shaanxi, Guangdong and other places. These machines are mainly used for printing trademarks, labels, folding cartons, cigarette boxes, wine boxes, corrugated cartons, paper cups, liquid packaging boxes, business forms, etc

China's GDP has maintained a high-speed and stable growth, and the printing industry, as an urban industry, has also developed rapidly, with an average growth rate of nearly 20%, and the total amount of equipment procurement has increased by an average of more than 20% a year. For example, more than 670 sheet fed offset presses were imported in 2002, and more than 780 in 2003. However, like the current situation of China's entire national economy, the development of the printing industry also has an unreasonable structure, which is very serious. Sheet fed offset printing occupies an absolutely dominant position, while other printing methods are only a limited supplement, and the development is very uneven. This is in line with the insufficient market competition in the Chinese market, the backward management of the printing industry, the relatively low labor force, and the extensive adaptability of the sheet fed offset press. However, with the increasingly fierce market competition and the continuous improvement of people's living standards, the industrial structure will inevitably change in a more reasonable direction

flexographic printing is becoming more and more popular because of its short plate making cycle, wide printing matrix, low equipment investment, high economic efficiency, and the use of water-based ink printing (green printing) that does not pollute the environment. Its development prospect is immeasurable
