Narrow web printing presses
Flexo printing dates from 1890 and from the start it was widely used in food packaging. About fifty years later new rules for food packaging were introduced. The flexo printing industry suffered from those new regulations because the demand decreased. In 1951 a new name for the process was introduced: flexography of flexographic printing. From those days the industry kept growing.
Narrow web printing is mainly used in label printing.
