GP100 Gravure Proofer

Instantly produce high-quality gravure ink proofs with press viscosity with the GP100 proofer. The unit includes a microprocessor-controlled servo drive and pneumatic operation, electronically engraved printing plates and variable printing speeds of 1-100m/min. This is an essential tool for all those involved in manufacturing or using liquid inks and is ideal for R&D and computer color matching data, quality control and presentation samples.

Features

  • Any flexible substrate can be printed
  • Excellent printability is ensured by the high speed of 100m/min
  • Quick-release doctor blade for easy cleaning

Gravure

Ink is transferred from an electronically engraved printing plate directly onto the substrate, attached to the rubber impression roller. Doctor blade and roller adjustments are made pneumatically, allowing repeatable settings for future tests.

Cleaning

The essential job of cleaning various machine components following each proofing run has been simplified by careful design. The doctor blade is removed and the printing plate and impression roll are easily accessible for cleaning.

Printing Plates

The GP100 uses the same electronically engraved printing plates used on the well-known K Printing Proofer and they are manufactured in exactly the same way as production cylinders. A choice of one or more of the standard available plates will normally be satisfactory but special plates (including those with a logo and/or company details) can be supplied with a maximum engraved area of 6.3x3.74''/160x95mm.
