New Technological Developments in Rotogravure Cylinder Making?




2002

Are there any new technological developments which have substantially improved upon rotogravure cylinder making? Putting it the other way, are there any developments facilitating high speed bulk printing, which are a threat to the business of rotogravure cylinder manufacturer?

Questioner is a printing novice. Hence please forgive obvious mistakes if any and respond accordingly.

Thank you,

I am quite familiar with the metal finishing industry, Chetan, but I too am a novice to the printing industry. I still see shops that anodize aluminum or plate & engrave copper for use in printing. But I can't say if it's threatened by a competitive manufacturing method so much as by the disappearance of a large portion of the industry to electronic media.

It may be like asking if there are new developments in vacuum tube manufacturing or incandescent lamp manufacturing on the horizon :-)

Good luck, and hopefully someone from that industry will respond.
