Printing Press in Dubai

Printing involves the reproduction of text and images on paper, fabric, card and other mediums. It is the reproduction of original copy including everything to printable form involving different mechanism and different ways. Machines are involved in the process because it is hard and physical work and require efforts that can’t be carried out bare hands.

Methods of Printing:

All the methods of printing involve transferring ink from a printing plate to the medium on which printing is required. Although these methods are working on different ways but the purpose of all is just providing a reproduction of the original form into copies. Let’s compare these all.

Relief Method:

If one have ever heard of the old-fashioned machine that was used for letter writing known as typewriter, the idea of relief printing is the same as that of a typewriter.

Some of the current technology used for printing press in Dubai or America or any other region may also have some properties of this method. The basic idea of relief printing is that a reversed version of the thing that needs to be printed is made. It is simply a copy or an opposite shape of the original document or whatever. It is then covered with ink so all the sections that need to be printed on paper or other medium is filled with ink.
Relief Printing Method
With the help of machine that utilize force, the inked plate is pressed against the paper or other printing medium and same to the original copy, a printed copy is appeared on that material instantly.

Gravure Method of Printing:

Its name demonstrates exactly the same way it works. Instead of making the same original copy of writing in a raised form on the plate, a dig or simply scraped image is generated on the plate. Gravure method is just the opposite of relief method because there, a raised copy of the original document is generated on the plate while here the things go opposite of that.

Gravure Printing Method
While printing this way, the scraped portion of the plate containing image of the document is coated with ink. Sections above the depression is then clean up so that the ink only remains still in the depression part not on the whole plate. Finally the paper is pushed after pressing it hard to the inky depression on the plate. This way the paper picks up pattern only from the depressed sections where ink were locating and not from those above the scrapped portion of the plate. Exactly the same copy is obtained this way.

Offset Printing:

This technique of printing is also the same just like those explained above. The same concept of pressing plate on the paper and generating image work here as well but only one extra step is involved here. The inked plate containing the printable image is pressed against a soft roller transferring the image to the roller. The roller then transfers that image to the paper or another material and the exact copy is obtained this way.

Offset printing prevents the plate from deteriorating by the continuous impressions on the paper. The final printed surface have no direct contact with the plate, instead the roller works alternatively like plate providing the printed image and a clear shape is generated this way.

Offset Printing Dubai

All the major quantity printing solutions and printing press in Dubai use offset techniques of printing because of its speedy output capabilities. Modern offset printing doesn’t use the traditional concept of plate that was just a stone doing the job of plate. Instead, the image of document is transferred photographically to the thin metal printing plate. The portion that needs to be printed is coated with lacquer that attracts ink and the rest of the plate is coated with gum to attract water only. Later, the plate is pressed against a set of rollers, for the purpose of damping it in water and brushing the lacquer portion with ink that is then pressed against a rubber cylinder to obtain the image and distribute that further.
