Investment in new engraving machine for gravure cylinder production
von Ansgar Wessendorf,
In June this year, Bak Gravür commissioned the new K500 G4 engraving machine from Hell Gravure Systems. As an integral part, it increases the capacities of the fully automatic line for the production of gravure cylinders. With the K500 G4, the Turkish company wants to further reduce its production times and ensure the highest quality in gravure forme production. To this end, the engraving machine is equipped with HQH technology and multitune functions, among other features.
