An adjustor mechanism for added efficiency
Plate mounting tapes in flexible packaging printing applications.
Ever more challenging customer requirements and complex printing jobs are placing high demands on flexible packaging printing. Businesses have to optimise their processes again and again simply to remain competitive. As a result, choosing the correct plate mounting tapes is the important 'adjustor mechanism'.
At Lohmann, added efficiency and process stability are our speciality. We know that businesses are seeking solutions that guarantee straightforward mounting, removal and setting of printing pressure while providing excellent printing results, even at high printing speeds.
DuploFLEX® from Lohmann is a global standard in compressible printing plate mounting.
Our DuploFLEX® 5 range of adhesive tapes has been specially developed for 0.55 flexo printing and offers you all the benefits demanded from flexible packaging printing. Thanks to a wide range of adhesive tapes with varying foam hardnesses and adhesive properties, you can always call on the perfect product to meet any flexo printing task. You benefit from perfect printing results that give you a decisive advantage over the competition.
Improved quality from double-sided flexible film
In contrast to conventional foam adhesive tapes with a laminated PET film, our DuploFLEX® 5 range features a double-sided flexible PE film layer. This is a key design feature that ensures optimum printing results. It sees that the forces applied to the compressible foam are cushioned, resulting in no uncontrolled dot gain and an excellent printed image, even at high printing speeds.
A perfect printed image down to the last detail
Fine runs, brilliant half-tones, perfect areas or clean lettering; no matter the printed image, the DuploFLEX® 5 range promises excellent results. Use the table below to see what adhesive tapes we recommended for each application.
With four different foam hardnesses and three different sets of adhesive properties, the DuploFLEX® 5 range truly gives you the freedom to always make the best choice for each printing job. Storage considerations are also accounted for with individual colour-coding on each set of packaging, allowing easy product identification. In addition, all DuploFLEX® packaging is fully recyclable. You can save not only the environment, but your own disposal costs too. Call us today and let our experts answer any questions you may have.
DuploFLEX® HP 5
Are you looking to utilise every last percentage point and push the boundaries of what is physically possible? Do you want to print an even more natural skin tone onto a shopping bag? Or should unusually long and high-speed printing jobs be completed with consistent levels of quality? Then DuploFLEX® HP 5 (High Performance) is the answer - a milestone in compressible printing plate mounting.
Quality leap 1: flexible film layer on both sides
In contrast to conventional foam adhesive tapes with a laminated PET film, the DuploFLEX® HP 5 range features the same double-sided flexible PE film layer common across all products from the DuploFLEX® 5 range. This has the effect of perfectly cushioning the forces acting on the compressible foam. Consequently, uncontrolled dot gain is prevented and an excellent printed image is achieved, even at high speeds.
Quality leap 2: high quality polymer foam for ultimate stability
High quality polymer foam with incredibly uniform cell structures and relatively small cell sizes is what truly distinguishes DuploFLEX® HP 5 from other printing plate tapes. As a result, HP 5 is equipped with the qualities needed to leave conventional foams far behind. The high quality polymer foam from Lohmann has no match when it comes to stability and its ability to regain its original form, while effectively counteracting machine vibrations. It is especially suited to long and demanding printing jobs.
DuploFLEX® HP 5 - perfect for perfectionists
Do you believe that only the best will do? And do you strive for optimum colour transfer even at low dot densities? Then DuploFLEX® HP 5 from Lohmann is exactly what you're looking for. Use the table below to see which HP solution we recommended for each application.
Storage considerations are also accounted for with individual colour-coding on each set of packaging, allowing easy product identification. In addition, all DuploFLEX® packaging is fully recyclable.
