This calculator determines the amount of ink you will use given the variables entered, including percent ink transfer. It does not take into account anilox condition or metering effectiveness.
The variables above are all that a narrow web shop needs to use. You do not need to worry about repeat length, gear size or pitch, or anything like that. Just fill in the blanks and don’t work harder than you have to!
FOR FLOOD COATING: Enter the tint roll width in the Label Width field. Enter “12” in the Label Length field. Enter roll length in feet in the Quantity of Labels field. Enter “100” in the Percent Ink Coverage field.
See Table below for help with individual fields and what should be entered.
