Flexo plate for litho press

Postby richflexo » Mon Jul 22, 2013 2:57 pm


A litho company has asked us to do something new which we have never done before and that is make a spot varnish plate for a Speedmaster with a UV station. According to their manufacturer, flexo plates are better at this than metal plates because of the amount of ink transferred from the anilox for some of the newer coatings they are doing in magazines, bookes, etc. We recommended a .045" plate and we would work out the distortions with a test run. Are there any suppliers here who have had any luck with this?
