White Paper/Technical Guide: how to Match Today
Laser Cutting : 28 January, 2011
In 2008, when the original edition of this white paper was first released, the idea that laser cutting could be successfully integrated into flexo and digital printing operations was widely considered a possibility for the very distant future. In just three short years however, the continuing improvements in best-in-class laser cutting technology have not only made incorporation of laser cutting into flexo print operations a reality, but also allowed the combination of digital printing with digital cutting (aka laser cutting) to bring more variable data products into the world at highly competitive prices.
