FTA Europe is inviting flexo printers to be part of its project on developing a standardised test form which checks the quality of flexo printing presses.

A statement from the association said, ‘We would like flexo machine operators to complete a short survey, that takes no longer than five minutes to complete, answering questions related to their machinery and the checks they currently perform. The results of this survey will help the project team to pin down the most important aspects for a new standardised, European test form.’

A standardised test form for printers will help to compare the quality of different presses, evaluating technical features, detecting defects, and verifying output quality.

The association concluded, ‘Our team of experts includes all the key machine suppliers in Europe, as well as printers and flexo experts. We need the input from printers across Europe in order to design a test form that best suits their needs.’
