Flexographic Printing Sleeves


Flexographic printing sleeves

Compared to gravure printing, flexographic printing strengthens its position in the market thanks to its rapidly increasing print quality, operability, and lower costs. Sleeve technology has brought an increase in pace, simplification, and a reduction of costs. When using sleeves, laminate sleeves are provided with an elastomer or polymer layer on which a printed pattern is engraved. The finished sleeves are put on the air cores of the flexographic printing machine.
