In a world where packaging plays a significant role in selling a product and a message, rotogravure printing for plastic packaging film is an essential method for any manufacturer of flexible packaging material.
Rotogravure presses are widely used to print on standard packaging film such as PET, OPP, Nylon, and PE. In contrast to other processes, rotogravure presses use solid printing cylinders that can handle large volume runs at comparatively low operating costs. Additionally, they ensure high-quality image reproduction. New technical developments include quick change features and improved web tension control, further increasing the range of applications and enabling even wider usability in the future.
Flexible packaging today not only requires standard presses for the printing of packaging materials, but also modern machines that can handle a variety of special applications. These include security features (holograms, micro images, etc.), additional complementary printing methods (screen printing, UV lacquering, etc.), and in-line converting features.
In the rotogravure printing segment, Rieckermann offers a technically highly advanced and flexible product portfolio including efficient standard machines and related peripheral equipment to keep production clean, effective, and profitable.
