Inline Flexo Printing Machine and Offline Printing Machine for Paper Bag Making Machine

Printed paper bags have been widely used in daily life. Printed paper bags can be used as gift packaging bags. For example, many jewelry merchants like to use printed paper bags to package jewelry to improve the overall beauty of the product. Most companies tend to advertise their brand logo on paper bags. Therefore, the market demand for printing paper bags is very extensive, and the printing function of the machine has been widely concerned. The printing function of paper bags provided by KETE is mainly divided into an Inline flexo printing machine and an offline flexo printing machine. Next, I will specifically introduce the difference and meaning of these two printing machine functions for you.

1.    What Is Inline Flexo Printing Machine For Paper Bag Making Machine

Inline flexo printing machine refers to connecting the flexo printing unit on the paper bag making machine between unwinding and forming parts. when we make a paper bag, the raw material will go through this inline printing unit to do flexo printing, then printed roll paper directly go to the bag forming unit to finish making paper bags. KETE’s Inline flexo printing unit has 1-color, 2-colors, and 4-colors for you to choose from.

2.    What Is Offline Flexo Printing Machine for Paper Bag Making Machine

Offline flexo printing machine means that the printing function is not connected with the production process of the paper bag making machine, bag making machine will use this offline printing machine printed paper rolls to make paper bags. you need manually move this printed jumbo roll to load on the paper bag making the machine’s unwind unit. KETE’s offline flexo printing unit has 2-colors, 4-colors, 6-colors, and 8-colors for you to choose from.

3.    The Difference Between Inline Flexo Printing Machine and Offline Flexo Printing Machine

3.1  Mode Of Operation

An inline flexo printing unit needs to be installed on the paper bag making machine for working, so it only can be connected with 1 set paper bag making machine. but the Offline flexo printing machine works separately from the paper bag making machine, it does not necessarily connect with the paper bag making machine. so normal offline flexo printing machine and support 4-5 sets paper bag making machine working volume.

3.2  Optional Color

1-color flexo printing refers to a printing pure 1 color. it is more suitable for customers who need to print pure letters or some barcode on paper bags, 2-colors flexo printing refers to a printing simple design with only 2 colors. it is more suitable for customers who need to print simple photos, logos, or letters on paper bags. 4-colors flexo printing refers to a printing design with 4 colors. it is more suitable for customers who need to print photos on paper bags, 4-colors can do CMYK printing. theoretically, you can print any design you like. 6-colors or 8-colors flexo printing refers to the printing of some complex design. Besides CMYK-based color, you can print 2 or 4 more special colors, so it can make your complex color printing job easier and reduce waste.

3.3  Scope Of Application

KETE’s Inline flexo printing machine can only be used during the operation of the paper bag making machine, so it is only can print for paper.  However, an offline flexo printing machine can be used in various materials, The application range of printing is not limited to paper but also can print non woven fabric and plastic film.

3.4 Cost of Production

Labor cost

In terms of labor costs, and Inline flexo printing machine is significantly cheaper than an offline flexo printing machine. For Inline flexo printing, you only need to put the paper jumbo roll into the unwinding of the paper bag machine and input the operation command. This means that you only need to hire one operator to use the paper bag machine with inline flexo printing. But if it is Offline printing, you must hire an operator of the flexo printing machine in addition to the operator of the paper bag machine, which means increased labor costs in production.

Machine cost

The paper bag machine that increases the Inline printing function only needs to add USD24,000 for 2 colors and USD36,000 for 4 colors. and to purchase an offline flexo printing machine you need to increase the budget, but your choice is no longer limited by bag making machine feeding speed of 50-70m/min. you can choose our KTFP-BP series offline flexo printing machine, with a speed of 120m/min, price starting from USD46,000, and KTFP-CP Series offline flexo printing machine with a speed of 150m/min, price starting from USD86,000

3.5 Space

An offline flexo printing machine requires a larger area than an Inline flexo printing machine. Inline printing is assembled in the paper bag making machine and does not require a large area. Offline printing requires a completely new space to work. The area will be larger. If you need to save the floor space of the machine, Inline printing will be more suitable for you.
