Flexographic Plate Mounting and Printing

  • You know how important the right tools are: flexographic print quality is hugely influenced by how plates are mounted, from softer mounting tapes for halftone work and crisp lines to firm tapes for solid ink. 3M offers not only a variety of flexo printing tapes but the widest range of density options for halftone, process and solid printing, all with tight caliper tolerances to help you keep tight registration. Efficiency is another important consideration, so 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tapes offer quick positioning and adhesion, reduced edge lifting and easy removal, all of which also reduce the incidence of damaged plates. We also have tools to help with surface preparation, plate mounting and plate removal, as well as zero-speed splices, flying splices and V- and W-pattern splices.

    You have unique printing needs. Let us help you optimize workflows and keep your presses running.
