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.


Bobst was founded in 1890 in Lausanne, Switszerland. Meanwhile the company grew enormously. Nowadays Bobst has 11 production plants in 8 countries. Bobst started with the production of machines used for producing cardbord.  Since the acquisition of Schiavi, Rotomec and F&K the company has also a wide range of machines for printing and producing flexible packaging.
