about SURTECO Art


ARTWORK

The design and decor development of wood, marble, tile or imaginative decors is carried out in-house and in close cooperation with customers. A dedicated team of experts takes care of the development of embossing textures. The optimized templates are digitized using a Cruse Scanner of the type “Synchron Table ST Repro Decor”. The Reproduction/Scan Department carries out research together with major manufacturers to enhance the procedure for scanning the template surfaces in 3D.


CYLINDER ENGRAVING

As a rotogravure cylinder manufacturer with its own artwork production facility, SURTECO art serves decor and CV printers worldwide. The cylinders required for decor printing at SURTECO DECOR are also engraved at SURTECO art – using the method of electromechanical engraving and laser engraving. Laser engraving facilitates generation of half cells and this delivers a qualitative improvement in boundary sharpness. Steel cylinders with a copper coating are used as printing cylinders. Our machinery portfolio allows us to produce printing cylinders with circumferences up to 2,200 mm and widths up to 5,200 mm with uniform, outstanding quality.


EMBOSS  ROLLING

Embossing cylinders used by SURTECO art for decorative and technical applications achieve an unparalleled range of detail. The high resolution of the laser permits precise implementation of the texture and provides the final product with an authentic visual appeal and haptic effect. The product range includes allover textures and synchronous textures matched to our printed decors.

SURTECO ART IS COMMITTED TO THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES SO THAT IT CAN SUPPLY DECOR ROTOGRAVURE CYLINDERS IN SUPERLATIVE QUALITY.
