With a strong team of experts, highly-experienced in Rotogravure Pre-press and cylinder engraving, we offer integrated, high-quality service from printing files’ reception to cylinder production. Thanks to the use of our in-house Auto Robotic rotogravure cylinder engraving line, we minimize response time, covering every requirement in product dimensions and ensuring high engraving quality.
The whole cylinder production procedure is fully automated through the use of specialized software and a robotic system, limiting human interference at minimum.
Quality assurance in the production of printing inks, and especially of Pantone color shades, is further supported with our in-house ink-mixing system. Our color-matching labs prepare the requested color shades and the ink-mixing technology executes color recipes with the help of advanced software. The color recipes for each SKU are stored and they can be re-produced on demand, without any deviation in the required ink formulation. This way we guarantee accuracy and reliability in printing.
>> Use of spectrophotometer device to capture of each color tone
>> Analysis of the color tones to measurable data
>> Data conversion into ink recipes (Ink formulation program)
>> Electronic storage of the ink recipes by client and by product
>> On-demand execution of the recipes in the ink-mixing stations
