Abstract

As part of an on going study of the process physics of flexographic printing, a comprehensive study has been undertaken of the effect of ink viscosity, engagement, line ruling and anilox volume on the ink transfer to paper. The viscosity of the ink was varied in two manners, one by dilution with sol...
