The presses handle all kind of paper, cardboard and synthetic substrates

In the TBR series, TBR-102 was launched in 1992. The first installation was at ITC Chennai.

Five in India.

The Moog sheetfed rotogravure press is the best solution for all packaging printers focused on the premium market, especially beauty, confectionary, premium liquor, pharmacy, tobacco, security printing, labels, mock-ups and others. These presses stand for colour brilliance and process stability, high net output, environmental-friendly and short makeready time. The presses handle all kind of paper, cardboard and synthetic substrates. The same presses can be used for water-based, UV-based ink and varnishes as well as solvent-based systems.

The company says no other printing system prints better.

At Moog, the company is steadily looking for technical upgrades. In the last 12 months, it developed a new UV ink pan, which has an integrated heating system for better temperature control, a completely new delivery gripper bar with new grippers made from synthetic components, which allows a much faster speed, new operating software for better visualisation and a new hollow cylinder which is an additional option to the shafted cylinders, and its clamping cylinder for printing plates.
