The published articles are meant to primarily educate the students in printing to supplement their knowledge in the field of Printing. These are not simple Glossary of printing terms, but to the extent possible every term has been explained in brief so that it can be of some use to the students who appear in some sort of examinations and interviews.
I served the Printing Industry for over 40 years
in various capacities, a major part in an Security Printing Organization. In order not to waste the printing and paper related knowledge which I gained over years, I decided to keep them in public domain for the reason stated in prepara. Most of the illustrations - over 90% - have been generated by me to explain the terms suitably.
While I am not sure to what extent the published content will help, if the content is going to be of use to some one in some manner, I will be greatly satisfied.
Your views may be sent to me ( for my record and correction wherever needed.

New Development Series- 1

Recent Development in Printing --  Series- 1
( N.R. Jayaraman)

Recently I read a new development in printing. Read below to gain knowledge:-

One of the recent development in the field of printing has been from a firm called Apex Machine Company which has developed an Offset machine under Trade name 'FLEXAPEX' which utilizes modified flexographic inking technologies and UV (ultraviolet) cured inks in combination with Dry Offset Printing process.

The process uses solvent free UV cured liquid inks and it is increasingly replacing solvent based ink technologies such as pad printing and gravure as well as providing a low cost alternative to silkscreen printing for high volume products.
According to the firm  the technique has capability of transferring large volumes of ink for the printing of dense artworks and solids, thus offering great potential for improved quality of solids and for the printing of light colored inks onto dark substrates on higher speeds. A further benefit of the FlexApex process is highly predictable quality and density repeatability on re-runs. 

Further the firm claims that Flexapex can also be combined with conventional dry offset printing in the same machine thus offering the best of both worlds.For more information  visit the following site :
