Gravure Printability Tester (Monochrome Printing)

Needs for gravure printing have been increasing recently, with rapidly advancement of its technology. This tester has been developed under the guidance of the National Printing Bureau, to have functions like those of the practical press. Printing conditions can be set as desired, such as printing pressure, speed, contact angle, and contact pressure of the doctor blade. This machine is composed of impression cylinder, plate cylinder, doctor section, ink vat and driving unit. Ink applied on the plate cylinder in the ink vat is scraped off by the doctor. The plate cylinder contacts the impression cylinder on which the specimen is wound, thereby transferring the ink to the specimen under a constant pressure to complete printing.
