New 8+1 water color printing machine

Plastika Mesojedec s.p. implemented a NEW compact press at the beginning of 2023, with all the advantages offered by the Uteco-Onyx xs range of technologies, specifically tailored to optimise the printing of short runs for flexible packaging.

Water-based inks are a popular choice for flexo printing as they have several advantages over other ink types. Some of the advantages of using water-based inks are outlined below:

Environmentally friendly: Water-based inks do not contain harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making them a more environmentally friendly option compared to solvent-based inks.

Improved safety: Water-based paints are generally safer to handle and use compared to solvent-based paints, which can be flammable and emit harmful fumes.

Vibrant colours: Water-based inks can produce vibrant colours and excellent colour saturation, resulting in high-quality prints.

Cost-effective: Water-based dyes are generally cheaper than solvent-based dyes, which can help reduce production costs over time.

Versatile: Water-based inks can be used on a variety of substrates including paper, cardboard and plastic films. They are also compatible with a variety of printing techniques, including flexo printing.

Less odour: Water-based inks are virtually odourless, making them a good choice for print jobs where a low level of odour is required.

Water-based inks for flexo printing can help reduce the carbon footprint of the printing process compared to traditional solvent-based inks.

Lower greenhouse gas emissions: water-based inks emit fewer greenhouse gases compared to solvent-based inks, as they do not contain harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that contribute to air pollution.

Less energy consumption: Water-based inks require less energy to produce compared to solvent-based inks, which can help reduce the carbon footprint of the ink production process.

Less waste: Water-based inks are easier to clean and dispose of than solvent-based inks, which can help reduce the amount of waste generated during the printing process.

Sustainable sourcing: Many manufacturers of water-based inks use sustainable sourcing practices to reduce their environmental impact, such as using renewable energy and minimising water consumption.
