In order to have a good printing quality we must take into account different factors: the influence of the support, the perfect maintenance of the press "giver,Anilox, Inking system", ink and printing plates.
The printing plates are an essential part in the quality of the image transferred, and any damage or deformation provoque an error in this image.
Every day new sets of cliches enter to your company, this represents an annual rotation of 70.000-280.000 € in cliches.
Thus,they need a proper maintenance to keep their properties during the largest amount of printings.
