Steel cliches are especially suited to high quantity printing runs and closed ink systems. The quality of these cliches is unequaled.

This is evident from their absolute sharpness of contour, multi-stage etching, utilization of screens of all types, very fine surface.

Numerous trials have shown that an etching depth of 30-35 μm is optimal for pad printing. Since the pad can only transfer a limited quantity of ink, a greater depth is pointless . Hence we use some special technology in plate making to get more ink film from the etched depth.
