To help customers understand printing equipment and better select high-quality gravure printing machines, we will introduce you to the technical principles of gravure printing machines.

The gravure printing machine adopts the direct printing method, and the formed ink layer is thick and the dots are clear. It is often used for the outer packaging of beautifully printed goods. This printing method originated from dial printing technology in the Swiss watch industry. Watchmakers use gelatin liners as transfer media to transfer images or text onto the dial.

The printing process at that time was all manual, and it was not until the mid-1960s that the prototype of the first gravure transfer printing machine driven by electricity appeared. With the development of low-temperature hardening silicone resin technology as a transfer medium, gravure transfer printing technology has also made breakthrough progress. In the past 40 years, this technology has been successfully used for printing on various switches and texture surfaces.

Gravure transfer printing adopts the wet-press wet printing method commonly used in screen printing, which can carry out multi-color overprinting, and can even print out high-quality halftone images. The advantage of gravure transfer printing is that ordinary flat gravure printing plates can be used to print almost any shape of substrate, and can get products with the same quality as ordinary gravure printing.
