Folding Cartons

Folding Cartons

Traditionally, the folding carton industry relies on offset printing and this will go on, supported by the high degree of offset standardization and the trend to shorter runs and fast plate-making. This is the arena with often special requirements in terms of CTP solutions including plates for UV applications that do not require baking, the latest plate production technology, color management, and screening. Agfa Graphics' offerings play on all these requirements.

Metal Cans

Metal Cans

A can is a sealed container, composed of thin metal (tin-coated steel or aluminium) for the distribution and/or storage of goods such as foods, beverages, oils, aerosols, paints and coatings. It can be printed directly on the metal or on a separate label. Direct on metal offset printing can be done with UV-curing or thermal inks.

Flexible Packaging

Flexible Packaging

Printing on a wide diversity of flexible substrates is really the playing field of flexo and gravure printing. Over the last couple of years, the flexo print technology has gained considerable ground in comparison with gravure, mainly in terms of print quality and reliability in higher print runs, and also offset printing is getting into this ball game, thanks to its lower operational costs and fast press-ready time.

The trend to more packaging diversity and shorter runs requires fast plate-making and standardization. Offset printing on flexible substrates is the ideal technology to meet such needs. This is where Agfa Graphics will deploy its offset prepress technology and expertise, joining forces with Comexi, a leading supplier in flexible packaging presses.

Corrugated Cartons

Corrugated Cartons

Achieving high printing quality on corrugated boxes is not an easy thing. One way to achieve this is to preprint a liner board in full color offset before laminating it with the required flute structure. Or you can apply a XM -Cross modulation screening technology onto Flexo plates, to achieve higher color quality and image detail while printing directly on the corrugated substrates. Whichever way you go, Agfa Graphics has expertise and can help you with preproduction solutions.

Labels

Labels

The label printing sector has high demands in the number of printing technologies used, the number of substrates to print on, the level of sophistication in both colors and embellishing techniques, not to mention the finishing aspects. Today, label printing customers all over the world use Agfa Graphics' preproduction solutions.
