Francklow predicts the surge in rotary print demand will continue

The company has experienced a spike in demand in the label and packaging sectors and says its rotary screen range – which includes Kocher & Beck technology – is “seeing a new lease of life”.

Creation supplies high-definition, pre-coated Kocher & Beck rotary screens which are comprised of a nickel-plated stainless-steel material and coated with photopolymer. The screens cover a number of substrates, machine unit types and screen unit widths.

For Mark Francklow, managing director of Creation, the increase in demand for rotary screens isn’t a surprise. He says: “The format has been gathering pace for some time as printers invest in more diverse print technologies.

Rotary screen printing is hitting all the right notes for printers in terms of what brand owners and consumers are looking for

“It’s becoming increasingly difficult for label and packaging printers to specialise when agility, versatility and innovation remain so key. Rotary screen printing is hitting all the right notes for printers in terms of what brand owners and consumers are looking for.”

As with any print process, volume, speed and accuracy are key. However, Francklow is also seeing a drive towards premium tactile finishes.

He adds: “Across the packaging sector, I think we’re getting Covid-fatigue – but while evolving consumer demands are still such a driving force for success, we continue to focus on what we can deliver right here, right now.

“For a growing number of printers, the answer lies in rotary screens. Capturing the eye and the imagination with superb colour density, vibrancy and finishes is a powerful tool in the arsenal of printers, and we’re expecting to see rotary screens continue this strong upward momentum into the future.”
