Graphic educational center Broby Grafiska and the Swedish Flexography Association (SweFlex) regularly host joint trainings and seminars for the printing industry. This year’s spring meeting was completely dedicated to flat top dot technology. More than 150 participants from 10 countries came to Sunne, western Sweden, to look at the results of the print trials.
Five large repro houses, which use the different flat top dot technologies of diverse printing plate manufactures, had been invited for the print trials. All participants had to reproduce the same test form with four different images, which have been printed on the school’s Fischer & Krecke printing press.
For all print jobs, Flint Group’s water-based Premo Screen HD printing ink was used; thereby, the artwork submitted by the multinational prepress company, Miller Graphics, achieved excellent results. Miller Graphics utilized Flint Group’s new nyloflex ACE Digital printing plate and nyloflex NExT exposure technology. The results of this print trial again showed the outstanding printing quality that can be achieved with the nyloflex NExT technology. The finest highlights and smoother vignettes, as well as a perfect ink lay-down due to the possibility to apply a HD surface screening, convinced the jury.
