FLEXO DAY 2017: CRONACA DI UN SUCCESSO

drawdown e il riconoscimento del cambio di gamut da parte degli osservatori. Lo studio ha rilevato che per gli stampatori i drawdown potrebbero essere utili per valuhybrid screens, surface texture patterns and all the parameters defined during optimization and fingerprint phases. Everything must be verifiable by means of control scales. “The conclusion of the printing system calibration process is therefore represented by characterization data, which are useful for printer and prepress and are indispensable to create a contractual color test able to simulate the expected result. Remember that the quality of your products will never exceed the quality of your measurements”, concluded d’Andrea.

tare la gamma migliore, anche se in base alle risposte dei consumatori la sequenza non viene percepita da tutti osservando l’imballaggio stampato.

FLEXO E CARTONE: L’ACCOPPIATA VINCENTE Gerardo Budetti Responsabile Tecnico di Antonio Sada e figli ha ripercorso lo sviluppo che la flexo ha avuto nell’industria del cartone ondulato attraverso le tappe di crescita della sua azienda che nel 2002 ha deciso di dotarsi di un impianto per la stampa ad alta definizione, dando vita nel 2006 alla nascita della divisione packaging.

THE INK SEQUENCE AND ITS INFLUENCE ON GAMUT EXTENSION Nina Davis, a Clemson University student, South Carolina, invited by Rossini (sponsor of Flexo Day and of a scholarship awarded by FTA US), presented a research on inks sequence and its influence on the extension of the chromatic range. These are the questions that the study aimed to answer: can the model be effectively applied using drawdowns before going to press to predict the best printing sequence? Do consumers notice a color difference when the print sequence is changed? We remind that drawdown is the mixing of an ink sample and the transfer of the same on the support that will be used in the final print, to be compared with the Pantone sample (or other color matching system) to evaluate chromatic fidelity. The project dealt with the practical utility of predicting color gamut verification by measuring only drawdowns and observing the recognition of gamut change by observers. The study found that drawdowns could be useful for printers to evaluate the best range, although based on consumer responses, the sequence is not perceived by everyone observing the printed packaging. FLEXO AND CARDBOARD: A WINNING COMBINATION

Analizzando le commesse prevalentemente composte da diverse grafiche ma in tirature brevi, l’azienda decide di inserire una macchina da stampa postprint. “Per stampare bene sul cartone ondulato bisogna analizzare ogni dettaglio: indispensabile l’aggiornamento tecnologico, investire in R&D e nella formazione tecnica degli operatori. Oggi Antonio Sada e Figli è uno dei for-

nitori leader nel mercato degli imballaggi in cartone ondulato, vincendo anche dei premi al concorso BestInFlexo del 2016, grazie a un perfetto lavoro di squadra che ha coinvolto management e collaboratori”, ha concluso Budetti.

PERCHÉ FLEXO? Chiedere agli stampatori flexo perché la loro tecnologia di riferimento è la migliore scelta di stampa possibile equivale forse a chiedere all’oste se il vino è buono, ma Giuseppe Tripaldi, esperto di stampa e responsabile del ConverDrome di Uteco ha evidenziato tutte le caratteristiche vincenti di questo sistema di stampa.

Gerardo Budetti, Technical Manager at Antonio Sada e Figli has reviewed flexo development in the corrugated cardboard industry through the growth stages of its company which in 2002 decided to equip itself with a high-definition printing system, giving life in 2006 to the packaging division. Analyzing the orders mainly composed of different graphics but in short runs, the company decides to insert a post-print printing machine. “To print well on corrugated cardboard, it is necessary to analyze every detail: technological updating is essential, investing in R & D and technical training of operators. Today Antonio Sada e Figli is one of the leading suppliers in the corrugated packaging market, also winning prizes at the 2016 BestInFlexo competition, thanks to a perfect teamwork that involved management and collaborators”, concluded Budetti. WHY FLEXO? Ask flexo printers because their reference technology is the best print choice is perhaps like ask the innkeeper if the wine is good, but
