Introduction

Rotogravure printing has a significant advantage relative to other printing processes for medium to long runs.

Gravure can produce very high quality multicolor printing on a variety of substrates.

Its success results from the simplicity of the process.

Having fewer variables to control ensures consistent print quality throughout a run.

Each print unit has 4 basic components; an engraved cylinder, the ink fountain, the doctor blade and the impression roller.
