GTT Anilox Engravings Proven to Reduce Ink Usage and Deliver Higher Opacity & Quality

“If your white ink isn’t opaque enough, just add more of it, right?” Not so fast!

A recent comprehensive flexo print trial reveals surprising results about the importance of anilox engravings in achieving target white ink opacity. Not only do some engraving geometries deliver better-formed ink lay-down, but they can achieve higher opacity with less ink volume. A look at the science of opaque white ink printing shows open-channel engravings can deliver better-quality results, faster turnaround, and reduced ink costs.
