FTA Europe’s Technical Committee brings together flexo experts from across Europe – both printers and suppliers.

Developing a standard test forme

A large group of flexo printers, suppliers, academics, and other experts are currently working on developing a standardised test forme to check the quality of flexographic printing presses.

A standardised test forme for printers will help them with things like comparing the quality of different presses, evaluating technical features, detecting defects, and verifying output quality.

Between October 2020 and January 2021, the team carried out a survey to gather input from flexo machine operators on how they currently test their machines. The results of this survey will help the project team to pin down the most important aspects for a new European test forme. Stay tuned for the results!
