Offset rotary printing
Offset rotary printing is primarily used to print products with medium to large printing runs.
One of the following forms of rotary offset printing is used depending on the material we are printing:
which uses cold-set printing equipment to apply ink that dries when absorbed by the material. These presses have no drying equipment.
which uses heat-set printing equipment to apply ink that dries through evaporation of a high boiling point solvent. These presses always have drying equipment.more
Offset sheet printing
Offset sheet printing is the most widely used technology thanks to its potential applications and overall commonality. This method of printing can be used for nearly all possible types of printed materials. Its primary advantage is moderate costs. The lower threshold of efficiency is from 500 to 1,000 sheets. In brief, it is technically improved plate printing. The printing form is made from a thin metal form on which printed and blank elements are installed in the same plane with no relief.
Greased and prepared elements absorb ink for printing and repel water while the blank elements absorb water and repel ink. This is an indirect printing technique as the ink is first applied from this printing form onto a rubber cylinder and then onto paper. The text on the printed plate will be legible, as opposed to the printing from above and below.more
Printing preparation costs are significantly reduced by digital printing, thereby delivering its primary advantages: speed (minimum amount of time needed to process orders), low printing costs for small quantities, the ability to make corrections during printing, stable quality and colour scheme (even when reprinting), dual-sided printing and printing runs as small as just one unit.
We make significant use of digital printing when personalising documents that are printed using other technologies. We use it to create digitally certified proofs that have replaced Cromalin proofs with the introduction of CTP technology. This is one of the most common technologies used for large-format printing.
We use this refined production technique and the technological conditions we can achieve with it to deliver high quality printing services. It can accurately render pen drawings and delivers surfaces without raster transitions. We primarily use this technique when printing packaging materials and self-adhesive labels on our rotary presses. UV flexographic printing is another option that can be used to print on a larger range of materials.
The UV ink we use allows us to achieve richer colours and better render the motif on the label. We can print with up to 8 colours depending on the type of printed material. In addition to our rotary presses, we also use sheet presses, but primarily for printing corrugated cardboard.more
We use screen printing as an additional technology for smaller printing runs. The primary advantage of screen printing is that it has practically no format restrictions and it is very simple overall. This extends from the simplicity of the printing press to the construction of printing forms. Screen printing involves applying ink on a flat screen to transfer a design onto the printed material using pressure. The areas where pressure is applied are defined by a template, which can be copied directly onto the screen. Screen printing is limited in terms of the size of the openings in this screen, which thereby determines its maximum resolution.more
