Micro-flute Printing

Typical micro-flute applications include product and transport packaging. Advantages over solid board include the fact that less raw material is required to achieve a given level of stability. Micro-flute packaging also has better stacking and flexural strength and weighs less. Its superior insulating properties also make it ideal for deep-freeze fast-food packaging.

Short-grain material must be used for micro-flute printing. The flutes then lie in the direction of travel, offering greater stability. The blanket is the key parameter for micro-flute printing since it must be able to ensure good ink transfer even at low pressures. Therefore, inks that transfer well, even at the lowest of pressures, should be selected.
