Everybody knows that research and development is at the heart of a successful organisation. That is certainly true of Focus, which is one of the reasons that we are the proud sponsors of the 2018 Flexo Tech International Print and Innovations Awards.
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.
By 2022, the global label industry is forecast to be worth £35.4 billion, and flexography as a whole over £106 billion. Although digital and hybrid machining is now an important part of this market, it is relatively small & flexographic printing machines will remain at the heart of the industry. This is partly because flexographic machines have a long service life, and the majority run lengths are still high volume for our consumer & retail markets.
