Here at Focus, we’re absolutely dedicated to innovation. It’s one of the reasons that we’re sponsors of the 2018 Flexo Tech Innovations Awards, and is also one of the reasons that we pursue partnerships with some of the most dynamic tech firms in the world. In one of our most exciting recent developments, we’ve teamed up with Phoseon, a US-based UV LED manufacturing company. The result has revolutionised flexography. Here’s an introduction to the future.
We live in a landscape augmented with transposed colour. Whether for labels, or fabrics, or posters, or logos, printing has become a central communication enabler in our society. As such, more companies than ever before are learning that continuous printing is not only useful, but central to their needs. And the competition is tightening.
In recent decades, the digital age has had a large influence on the printing industry and instrumental in improving & regulating industry standards. From management software controlling stock, quoting jobs, Production control to graphics production there has never been a more exciting time for the industry. What was only available to large corporations is now within the realms of most small to medium size companies.
2018 has been a hectic and interesting year for our textile printing equipment business. Whilst the majority of new installations have been in Asia, we have seen trends developing that has seen a recovery in production requirements in Europe, especially in labelling for household & soft furnishings. There are changes, often in surprising directions. The long heralded decline of traditional printing methods for ribbons & narrow textiles has not only failed to materialise, but the opposite has in fact occurred. Letterflex/Flexographic/Silk Screen methodologies and technologies are still going strong – the latest design machines offering unparalleled flexibility and productivity to enterprising businesses.
One reason for the comparatively slow growth of digital printing on textiles may be related to the extreme demands of the textile applications and the wide selection of types of textiles used in the industry. Fabric has always been inherently more difficult to print due to its flexible nature. The level of flexibility varies from warp to weft and with each degree around the bias, so guiding the fabric precisely through a digital printing press has proven to be very difficult, not forgetting the challenges of softness, fading, rub and wash resistance.
