Rotary Screen Labels
Rotary Screen Printing is an ideal process when higher volumes of ink coverage and color strength are required to achieve brilliant, high-grade graphic effects.
Rotary Screen Process
The process consists of an image exposed to a screen material wrapped in a cylindrical form and attached to end-rings. Ink is pressed through the mesh holes of the screen by a squeegee to produce the image on a substrate.
The screen mesh chosen controls the width & height of the image and also the thickness of the deposited ink layer. Having the ability to vary the ink thickness, MPI is able to produce rotary screen labels with increased POP and a tactile feel.
