PRE-PRESS


Well-equipped design studio manned by creative artists specialising in packaging designs facilitate aesthetic layouts, colour schemes and the final artwork.
We accept inputs in the form of Digital Files, Art work, Positive, Negative, Transparency and Film.
Scanning at 4000 DPI ensures a true to life image. High end Barco Monitor, calibrated to
prepress.jpg (5690 bytes) ambient light conditions, reproduces WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) images.
Approved and Finished designs, in digital forms, are planned through state of the art packaging planning software to meet the Gravure printing requirements.

Result can be previewed in the form of Cromalin proof.

The Review facility provides printing the final layout complete with print marks on Novajet printer upto one metre Web width.

Digital designs are electronically transferred to OHIO/Datwyler Cylinder engraving systems.

CYLINDERS

Base Shells made from best mild steel cylinders are dynamically balanced at 500 RPM to simulate printing speed.

Fresh base shells are nickel plated to enhance bonding of copper with mild steel.


GALVANISING

Galvanising systems from MDC Datwyler, Switzerland provide for high quality Nickel, Copper and Chrome Plating of Cylinders with automatic control on hardness and thickness of deposits.


POLISH MASTER

Fully computerised, Swiss-made Polish Masters ensure engineering accuracy and a smooth cylinder surface finish.

ENGRAVERS

High-end Electronic Engravers from MDC, Datwyler and OHIO create cylinders using digital inputs with accuracy and reliability.
Facility is also available for Chemical etching of cylinders through the conventional process.


PROOFING STATION

The proofing station from Hecford, U.K. is the last stop before cylinders are rolled out for production. This facility generates life like sample prints on desired surface using real inks and substrates.


All chemicals are tested in well equipped laboratories to give the best results under specified conditions.
Each Cylinder is checked for surface finish with sophisticated test and measuring equipment before and after engraving and documented.
All design data is digitally stored for accuracy and consistency for reproduction at any time in future.
