Tecnogravura
Established 1960
“DEFINING EXCELLENCE IN CYLINDER ENGRAVING”
● Founded in 1960 in Portugal, Tecnogravura has
positioned itself as a leading entity in this specialized
niche over the years. In 1999, we established
Tecnodiâmetro, a company dedicated to creating
cylinder steel and aluminum bases for printing and
optimizing lead times.
● As the company evolved to meet growing demands,
expansions unfolded across borders: first in Hungary
in 2000 and France in 2005. In 2017, we ventured
into the realm of flexography and offset, giving rise to
another sibling company: INKEY.
● These strategic moves were driven by a commitment
to align with market needs and establish production
units that solidify our global footprint.
About

● Tecnogravura has consistently prioritized
technological advancements, culminating in the
foundation of proprietary internal software.
GESTECNO is a comprehensive tool, enabling our
clients to seamlessly access and monitor their
projects while providing real-time updates on their
cylinders' inventory status. Clients are now able to
seamlessly review and either approve or suggest
modifications to their work. This commitment to
innovation emphasizes our dedication to client
engagement and long-term relationships with
tailor-made processes and automated systems.
Setting new standards for quality
● In modern rotogravure printing, an electromechanical
engraving printing cylinder features minute cells designed
to retain ink, with their size and pattern determining the
desired image. These cells transfer ink directly onto the
substrate through a combination of pressure and capillary
action, resulting in the final printed image.
● Efficient ink application, consistent print quality, simplified
printing processes and durable cylinders stand as
proficient benefits of this method, especially for extensive
print jobs and the creation of high-quality images.
Details etched in efficiency
● With a write resolution of up to 540 l/cm,
XtremeEngraving achieves results that in their
detail are every match for laser engraving.
Yet it also supports coarse screens with cross
diagonals of over 1000 μm and engraving
depths of up to 100 μm.
Details etched in efficiency
● XtremeEngraving is an engraving process to achieve exceptional contour definition
combined with high print density. It separates write resolution from the selected screen.
This means that ultrafine resolutions can be combined with high ink application volumes.
XtremeEngraving is used with great success to reproduce logos, bar codes, labels, drug
packaging, micro lettering, security features, and other high quality packaging.
● TECNOGRAVURA features a specialized Prepress Department
equipped with the latest software and automation procedures to
ensure continuous quality and short lead times. Complemented
by a team of dedicated experts, our commitment guarantees
your design undergoes a meticulous transformation, resulting in
high-definition prints of superior quality.
● In our repro process, we optimize and streamline the data to be
accurately reproduced during printing. This includes the
creation of separations/special color channels, checking and
adjusting minimum tone values, creating trappings, checking
the line widths and applying the color profile, and many others.
Prepress
● If the design involves multiple colors, color separation is carried
out. This step breaks down the design into individual color
components, typically using the CMYK color model plus Spot or
Pantone colors needed for the full design.
● Aligned with our clients' machinery's specific requirements and
operational needs, we expertly prepare the cylinder layout,
commonly referred to as Step and Repeat. This entails
duplicating and arranging the primary design in a systematic
grid or pattern. This method guarantees precise alignment and
consistent spacing between repeated images, ultimately
fostering a cost-effective and streamlined production process.
Prepress
● Color management is a crucial step of the process. That is
why we carry out color correction with the latest software,
which allows us to simulate the printing properties of different
colors using spectral data.
● The so-called fingerprints are created in advance to meet the
requirements of color reproduction and create a realistic
simulation of the expected result. The purpose of the "test
prints" is to record a particular combination of variables in
order to be able to derive the general rules in the form of
color profiles.
Prepress
● The proofing process is paramount, acting as a key quality
checkpoint and ensuring client satisfaction.
● By carefully examining and refining the design at this stage, we
are able to catch and fix potential issues early, contributing to
the overall success and efficiency of the reprographic process.
● This process is also vital for making sure the final printed
material meets the client's expectations and follows the
intended specifications.
Prepress
● By using modern machinery, we are able to create bases for
your cylinder design. This service allows our customers to
choose between regular steel bases or lighter aluminum
bases, shafted or shaftless, based on your preference. We
also have the ability to repair your cylinder for greater
longevity or even adapt it to your preferred machine.
● Tecnogravura also provides cylinder storage to house
cylinders belonging to our clients. This setup is designed to
reduce lead times in the engraving process. In addition to
storage, we thoroughly analyze each cylinder before it
enters production.
Base Construction & Cylinder Repairing
● Tecnogravura operates its own wastewater treatment plant,
meticulously monitored daily. This proactive approach
emphasizes our dedication to minimizing our ecological
impact and ensuring sustainable practices in our operations.
● Our recycling procedures allow us to refurbish and make
your previously engraved cylinders reusable. This provides
top-quality cylinders and contributes to resource
conservation and minimized lead times, dismissing the need
to order new cylinders. To enhance the longevity and
resilience of our cylinders, we seal them with a chrome
layer. This protective measure ensures that our cylinders
withstand mechanical influences over an extended period,
guaranteeing durability and reliability.
