  • Register kept at variable speed.
  • Storage of production parameters: Library of previously printed jobs.

聽Print quality and ease of operation

Print quality. Letterpress.

Letterpress printing on a semi-rotary platform is still very popular among label printers due to its versatility against other digital or conventional printing technologies.

Pre-press and processing

As modern letterpress benefits from developments in pre-press software and CtP processing, its print quality is equal to or better than flexo while providing cleaner and livelier printing with fine screens and more compact solids.

Ease of operation

As there is not dampening the operation becomes simpler.This,together with the plates longer life and digital management of inking, makes letterpress printing the most friendly and most economic system for printing quality labels.
