Compound Printability Tester

Because of diversified life cultures, requirements for printing have also diversified, with trends toward higher quality, higher speed and labor saving. To meet the needs for higher printing technology, development of multiple purpose testers is desired. This is a universal printability tester capable of managing gravure (direct and offset) printing, flexographic and form printing, and it can perform hot-melt coating as well. This compact machine, developed based on the gravure printability tester, can perform various types of printing by combining various components, ensuring high reproducibility and ease of operation.
