Flexo Control Universal
From Mask / Film to Print - all under Control!

The Flexo Control Universal is designed for quality control of screen areas, individual printing dots, lines, and barcodes on finished flexo plates, imaged LAMS flexo plates, steel-backed letterpress plates, offset plates, and elastomer flexo plates.

Flexo Control Universal measures AM screens from 23 to 85/cm on flexo and offset plates as well as FM screens with at least 20 µm dots.

The system achieves less than ±0.5% repeatability in all modes.

The instrument additionally measures the dots and coverage values of color prints with AM, FM, or hybrid screens on paper, carton, and film.
