The rise of flexo printing Flexo printing has a global growth rate of four to five per cent, and it is even higher in some regions. Improved print quality, based on mature pre-press and press technology, plays a key role. “We have a cutting-edge and extensive portfolio especially for our customers active in the growing packaging market. Together with our partners in the industry and our product range, I am certain that I will be able to win over many customers with this technology,” says Carina Shia. Moreover, it is a key advantage that flexo

printing inks contain a lot less solvents than gravure especially seeing as environmental protection is slowly gathering speed in many regions. This is an important factor not just for the environment, but also for the press operators.
