How to protect engraving cylinder against mechanical damage?
von Ansgar Wessendorf,
Armatif Gravure Systems, a Turkish manufacturer of gravure printing cylinders, gives some helpful and practical hints how to protect the cylinders against mechanical damage:
Secure Location: Place the engraving cylinder in a secure and controlled environment. Consider using a locked room or a dedicated storage area with restricted access to authorized personnel only
Protective Covering: Use a protective covering or case specifically designed for the cylinder. This will shield it from dust, dirt, and potential physical damage
Shock Absorption: Install shock-absorbing materials around the cylinder or on its surface. This can help dampen the impact of any external force or vibration that could potentially harm the delicate engravings
Proper Handling: Train personnel on the correct handling procedures for the cylinder. Emphasize the importance of careful and gentle handling to prevent accidental drops or impacts
Regular Maintenance: Implement a routine maintenance schedule to inspect and clean the cylinder regularly. Address any signs of wear or damage promptly to avoid further issues
Employee Awareness: Educate employees about the significance of the engraving cylinder and the importance of its protection. Encourage a culture of responsibility and care within the workplace.
