Uteco 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.

Uteco produces flexo- and rotogravure printing presses as well as laminators.  This Italian company has its production plant in Colognola ai Colli, on the east side of Verona. Uteco has two plants with a commonal production area of over 65.000 square meter.
The first four color printing press was introduced in 1985 and since that moment over a hundred Uteco printing presses has been produced. Since 1991 Uteco North America is part of Uteco, serving the American market.
