Rotogravure printing presses
Gravure printing is mainly used for long run printing with high quality images. Rotogravure printing is a type of intaglio printing. This means that the image will be engraved on a cylinder, the ink will surface the cells in order to transfer it to the paper or foil.
In 1790 the first patent for a rotary press was filed. Later, in 1843, the rotary drum printer was invented. Most rotogravure presses have multiple print units.
