Gravure at your fingertips

April 16, 2019 Off By Sebastian Reisig

On May 15-17 the ERA and the HDM will give an introduction to gravure cylinder preparation and printing with demonstrations and practical exercises.

The introductory course offered here covers gravure in theory and practice, from the galvanics for copper plating of a cylinder, through surface processing and finishing, preparation of a layout and the subsequent electromechanical engraving process, to printing on several papers with different ink viscosities. Besides electromechanical engraving, all workflow processes for other modern gravure cylinder engraving procedures such as laser assisted etching and laser engraving are explained.
