Many may not know it, but flexography or flexographic printing—commonly referred to as flexo—plays a very important role in the market of goods and products manufactured and distributed to stores worldwide. Flexography, or flexo, is a form of a printing process that uses a modern version of a letterpress, called a flexible relief plate. Flexo allows for printing on almost any type of substrate surfaces, including plastic, metallic films, cellophane, and paper. It is widely used for printing for various types of food and goods packaging, as well as printing large areas of solid color.
The process of flexography, though, could not be done without the proper equipment, and for those in the flexo industry, you all know that, in order to produce clean, good print-outs which will no longer require back jobs, the equipment and machinery used must be well-maintained, clean, and regularly checked. Of course, over time, newer, faster, and more efficient motors and parts are being produced, in order to make the machines and equipment work and perform better. One such machinery very useful in flexographic printing is converting machinery. Converting machinery, or converters, work by taking continuous rolls of thin, flat materials—known as webs—and then threads them through processing machines (such as printing, laminating, coating, or slitting machines), in this case, through the flexographic printing processing machine. Converting machinery, like other equipment, would have to be maintained properly, a good output is to be expected. It, and the other equipment used in flexographic printing, would also have to be regularly checked for upgrades, in order to maintain steady printing production.
Machinery and equipment, as long as properly maintained, thoroughly cleaned, and regularly checked and upgraded, could actually work for years—some may even work longer than its intended lifespan. Even if you are just using surplus equipment in your flexo business, regular and proper maintenance will allow you to save up on repairs and replacements on machines and equipment.
