ITR Laser Engraving

After approval of digital artwork, designs are separated and electronically engraved on one of three CO2 lasers. The engraving process vaporises unwanted areas of rubber, leaving a high definition engraved surface which can reproduce line weights of 1 point and screens of 175lpi (70lpcm) with highlight tones of 1%, guaranteed to register with all other colours.

Attention to detail and rigorous quality checks and traceability apply at every stage of manufacture. All engraved cylinders and sleeves are wet proofed prior to despatch to confirm design integrity and cylinder tolerances.

Continuous (ITR) sleeves and cylinders offer long, trouble free cost effective print runs without the inconvenience of plate lift and press downtime.
