Proven UV technology for streak-free printing
Easyflo has been specially developed to enhance the print quality when using UV inks.
In today’s narrow web environment UV spitting is often experienced. UV ink transfers differently on the press from water- and solvent-based inks. UV inks can have a viscosity of up to five times the viscosity of water and solvent based inks. Due to the fact that UV ink is thicker it creates a build up of pressure behind the doctor. With conventional 60° screens the only way to release this pressure was an involuntary lift of the doctor blade resulting in spitting. Easyflo is a channelled engraving at 30° which improves the ink lay down allowing the ink to flow from cell to cell as the roller is spinning, reducing this pressure and therefore eliminating the spitting. We have been using this screen to eliminate UV spitting for more than 12 years and it works, if you are experiencing spitting try easyflo, it will eradicate it completely.
In addition to this, its open structure improves the ink release from the cell, transferring 10% more than conventional 60° engravings
