General Guide for your Plate Mounting Tape to work right |
These are the 3 important steps :
Yes, You can use just one tape – Some printing plates offer surface patterning. This transfers more ink in the solid areas. Using this technology enables many printers to only work with one plate mounting tape only. In our case the INMOUNT 70/70H is the perfect match. This will support consistent tone values in the high lights and at the same time get enough ink transferred to keep the solid areas and letters closed with no pinholes.
Talking about typical sizes for plate mounting tapes, in our opinion the 457mm is the most common size. But we have log rolls in 1370mm and can slit down to any size needed. The less cut-off waste the better. For example: 685mm or any other size that fits into 1370mm total. Read more about: Best Practices on Managing Plate Mounting Tapes.
For most common tapes, Our INMOUNT 70 and 71 are the most wanted tapes in the portfolio. For label printers it is the INMOUNT 41. They all cover a wide range of print demands and can be used like “allrounders”. Read More: Improving Efficiency with the Right Tape.
