The new engraving is specially designed to reproduce the tactile effect of rotary screen. Now printers can achieve a two-dimensional feel to the package without the use of embossing or expensive tooling. This engraving technology offers the highest release of lacquers and varnishes available in flexo printing, the company says.
Cheshire is also demonstrating its full range of engraving technology, including MaxFlo+ specially developed for UV inks. This is a channel engraving that offers higher transfer of ink at finer line counts, which radically improves image definition, as well as solving UV spitting as its channel structure improves the ink flow within the anilox. This eliminates the pressure build-up of ink in the cells when doctored, which can result in spitting.
