Ink Control Technology
The ink is controlled in the flexographic printing process by the inking unit. The inking unit can be either of the below:
Fountain Roll System
The fountain roll system is a simple old system yet if there is too much or too little ink this system would likely not control in a good way.
Doctor Blade System
The doctor blade inside the anilox roller uses cell geometry and distribution. These blades insure that the cells are filled with enough ink.
At Holoflex Limited we use the doctor blade system on our flexographic unit to achieve superior print quality.
