Applications And Features Of Rotogravure Printing Machine
Rotogravure, also known as roto or gravure is a type of intaglio printing process, which involves engraving an image into an image carrier and the process uses rotary printing press where the image to be printed is fixed onto a cylinder. Generally, this process is used for cardboards aluminum, foil paper, commercial printing of magazines and even in product packaging as well. So, we can say that the gravure machine used in the printing process.
This machine uses a printing cylinder with small cells that have been engraved on it, and these cells have the ability to retain ink and the pattern with the size that ultimately reflects the final image of the product. Rotogravure printing machine is a fast speed kind of printing machine and used largely in the printing industry. For the utmost level of efficiency, rotogravure machine operates at high speeds, producing very large diameters with extensive rolls.
Applications of Roto Printing Machine:
The Rotogravure printing machine is very popular and largely used in the photography and fine arts reproduction sectors due to its high density range in printing. The printing process is generally used in packaging sectors and food manufacturing. In addition, it can print a great range of substrates some of which involve polythene, BOPP and polyester among others. The machine is most popular in this sector due to its capability to print fine on thin films like nylon and polyester. Also, the printing process is applied in manufacture of transfer printing and wall covers.
Roto Printing Machine Features
Roto printing is one of the most common processes used in the converting industry (companies that mainly focus in combining raw materials like polyesters, tapes, foams, adhesives, silicone, plastics, rubber, felts, etc, to make products). This printing process is expensive for short runs and best suited for high volume printing as it needs the making of one cylinder for each colour of the final image. The prime uses include long-run magazines more than 1 million copies, consumer packaging, mail order catalogs, Sunday newspaper ad inserts, etc. The flexible-packaging sector is another application area of rotogravure printing. A large number substrates like polyethylene, polyester, BOPP, polypropylene, etc. can be printed in the Roto press.
All Roto machines are made with equal brilliant quality for both domestic and international customers. The machines are manufactured taking into account high International Standards such as ISO and other global Inspection bodies and agencies.
