Today, gravure printing is in the state ofcontinuous development. New technologies are being introduced, innovative (mainly laser) methods of engraving printed cylindrical forms are being developed. New types of printing machines are being created, improved and already successfully applied. Deep printing is almost the most productive option, ensuring the highest quality of any prints, regardless of their format.
Notwithstanding the rapid developmentcompetitive methods and, without exaggeration, the "golden age", which is currently experiencing printing, the press in a deep way is still relevant. This species occupies a very strong position in the production of various souvenir and promotional products, large-scale circulations of packaging containers for confectionery, flour and other products.
A particularly strong position is occupied by deep sealsin the segment of production where it is necessary to perform cold gluing, which can not be done on flexographic machines. The main consumers of such printing products are large food concerns, which make chocolate bars, pills, ice cream, etc. The company also actively uses this service, wishing to decorate with its logo various office supplies and household items.
Deep seal, thanks to organic synthesismodern printing machines and the latest printing materials with innovative printing technology, has a huge potential for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of technical processes. And this contributes to the receipt of even not quite traditional printed products, the necessity of which is dictated by the current economic conditions.
Despite the wide variety of printingtechniques (offset, flat, screen, high, direct printing, etc.), it is the way of gravure printing that allows you to achieve the highest quality reproduction of design ideas. Such an accurate transfer of various artistic nuances, tiny dots, strokes and fonts became possible thanks to the use of high-tech printed cylindrical forms, manufactured by the method of electromechanical engraving. At the same time, unavoidable rasterization of the fonts occurs, since the jumpers separating the image elements serve as support for the squeegee (an elastic steel tape designed to remove excess ink from the blank element of the printing cylinders) of the printing machine.
For several decades, withpreference was given to electromechanical engraving with a diamond cutter. This technology was the standard of high quality. However, now, in the light of the latest scientific and technological achievements, this technology is being replaced by laser systems. Such a modern approach allows to achieve almost phenomenal quality of printing products, as well as speed up the technological process and reduce production costs.
