LUMINITE PRODUCTS CORPORATION’S FLEXO PRINTING GEAR CALCULATORS
Which Calculator Is For You:
Understanding the exact gear, cylinder, and art repeats needed for your prints is crucial to success in your project. Working with inexact measurements throughout the manufacturing process leads to distortion in the final print, and necessitates frequent restepping or redistorting. At Luminite, we want to help you avoid these costly and time consuming errors.
We have produced 4 calculators for the most common gears.
