Abstract
Laser technology has found its new application in the gravure printing industry. The argon gas laser is used as a light source. The beam is controlled by a graphic software and used to expose a printing cylinder coated with photosensitive material. After the chemical process, the artwork is thus etched onto the cylinder and ready to reproduce pages. The laser exposure process, and the cylinder engraving processes will also be discussed. The samples of laser exposed images will be presented.
