Extremely well placed in all gravure applications
Flexible packaging – versatile and dynamic
Gravure’s largest and most diverse market segment has to meet exceptionally strict quality criteria for conveying the brand and product image, at the same time optimum organization and maximum efficiency are also important given the time critical production requirements. The largely automated Heliograph solutions ensure a high cylinder throughput combined with maximum quality and process stability. The high speeds of electromechanical engraving machines and the perfectly coordinated processes eliminate bottlenecks – the key criterion for our customers!
Tobacco – the supreme challenge in packaging printing
Decoration – the perfect look with the narrowest of tolerances
Security features – sophisticated prints and embossings
Both high-resolution gravure, often in combination with line engraving and microtext, and the screenless intaglio process with high-viscosity inks that imitates a hand engraving support a wide range of counterfeit-proof features. This makes gravure one of the preferred printing technologies for securities, stamps, and banknotes with their fine hatching and guilloché. The universal Digilas solution of our laser specialist Schepers makes this company an indispensable partner for such applications.
Publication printing – source of many innovations
Heliograph rounds off its portfolio with solutions geared to the large cylinder widths and critical throughput times encountered in publication printing. Publication gravure was once the birth place of modern rotogravure, and this produced numerous innovations that have now become a vital part of packaging and decorative printing.
