The video demonstrates the consistent ink transfer achieved over the entire printing plate at low printing pressures using the "Adless" flexo cylinder.. The plate is moved into 1 thou (25µm) engagement and achieves an even print across the whole width and length of the print. The reproduction of the print elements is even both in the of print and across the web, as shown by measurement of printed fine lines (work which is being prepared for publication). This new concept of flexo image carrying based on coating the plate cylinder, grinding and directly engraving was developed by Asahi Photoproducts as part of TSB (UK government) funded "Accuflex" project led by Timson Ltd. The quality of reproduction can also be attributed to the accuracy of the run out achieved between the mechanical components.
