Flexo Ink usage Calculator

Postby FlexoInkman » Fri Oct 08, 2010 4:46 pm

When customers ask me about how much ink to use for jobs, I ussully lead them to the calculators at Flexo exchange. My problem is some guys I supply do not have internet access at their computers in the plant. They want a formulation to use. Does anyone have that formulation available in a simple format making it easy to use?

Hi FlexoInkman,

I'm going to send you a calculator in MS Excel that you can give to your customers.

In addition, I recently created a video that I hope to upload to YouTube soon. In it, I describe what a BCM is, how it looks, how to calculate wet theoretical ink film thickness and how to calculate ink consumption. I'll let you folks know when I upload the videos.

Frank

04/21/2012: Here are the videos, folks!
