The Less Drama the Better

“Stop the presses!” is great drama, but it’s a productivity killer. Productivity is about balance: you constantly readjust to that changing sweet spot where you can run smoothly at the highest possible speed without defects popping up. Your experience tells you how your press should look and feel when it’s running right, so you notice when something is a little off and hunt it down. You also need to maximize productivity in the plate mounting room to keep jobs moving and after the run to get plates and cylinders stored away or ready for the next run.

Our expertise can help. At 3M we know adhesives and we deliver flexographic tapes that provide both strong hold to prevent plate lift on sleeves and cylinders and the 3M™ Comply™ Adhesive System to help reduce air bubbles. Both features cut down on time spent remounting plates. After the press run our tapes allow plates to be demounted with less force to reduce worker fatigue and plate damage.
