Roto Gravure Printing Machinery

gravure printing machine

Rotogravure printing, also known as gravure printing, follows the technique of intaglio printing. The rotogravure printing machine has two cylinders (also known as rollers in some countries). The one that contains the printing plate is known as the gravure cylinder. When the machine is switched on, the cylinder that contains starts its rotating motion while it is half-immersed in the ink fountain. Due to the rotating motion, the ink gets stuck to the cylinder,and it gets printed on the substrate that is placedunder the cover of the cylinder.

Though many substrates are used for printing in this method, paper is the most widely used substrate. The printing plates ensure that the ink is evenly printed on the printing areas, thanks to the movement of the impression roller. The cylinders move quite quickly and automatically, which is why rotogravure printing technique is considered to be one of the fastest and most advanced today. When the ink gets transferred to the printing surface, a doctor blade assembly system ensures that the extra ink is removed from the cylinder surface. This ensures that no ink is wasted and that only the desired quantity of ink gets transferred to the substrate.

From the above, you must have understood that the main parts of a rotogravure printing machine are an impression roller, gravure cylinder, ink fountain, doctor blade assembly and a dryer.

Rotogravure or Gravure is a type of intaglio printing process, which involves drawing the image onto an image mover. In gravure printing, the image is printed onto a cylinder because, like offset and flexography, it uses a rotational printing press. Rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of postcards, magazines and cardboard and other product packaging.
