Pad printing

On plastics, glass, porcelain, enamel or ceramics – with nyloprint® pad printing plates designs and fine type can be transferred most precisely on nearly all substrates and geometric shapes. Excellent detail reproduction, easy and fast plate processing are the outstanding attributes.

Due to the high abrasion resistance of the photopolymer plates nyloprint® WSA and nyloprint® ST can perform long print runs that are otherwise only achieved by using steel gravure plates. The extremely high resolution (up to 10000 dpi) and wide tonal range enable the production of top quality printed products.

Security Printing

In security printing, e.g. for banknotes, passports or stamps, several different print processes are used for the production of one product. nyloprint® plates make a valuable contribution throughout.

Printing of micro text and guilloche patterns require the highest possible precision. With a resolution of up to 10000 dpi, nyloprint® plates are utilised for these extreme requirements.

nyloprint® intaglio master plates – in intaglio printing the nyloprint® gravure printing plate acts as the master form used in the galvanic processing of the actual printing plate. These plates make it possible to manufacture a complete form in one step, much quicker and easier than with previous processing methods. Many intermediate steps in the galvanic processing are no longer required thus reducing the chance of error.
