Abstract (en)

The printing machine produces a number of components common to different types of secure printing. The common elements are formed by screen printing with a screen-carrier drum (3) co-operating with a pressure drum (4). The printed item then passes through a drier (5) followed by a transfer cylinder (6) and a second pressure cylinder (7) that co-operates with a security mark printer (13).

Abstract (fr)

La machine comporte un dispositif d'alimentation (1) en papier sous forme de feuilles, un dispositif de transport (2) vers une unité d'impression, un dispositif de transport de feuilles imprimées vers une unité de contrôle (8) de la qualité d'impression et une unité de stockage (10, 11, 12). L'unité d'impression est modulable pour s'adapter à différents types d'impression de sécurité et qu'elle est constituée par les éléments communs à tous ces différents types d'impression. Ces éléments communs sont un dispositif d'impression par sérigraphie (3, 4) comprenant un cylindre porte-tamis (3) collaborant avec un cylindre de pression (4) et un dispositif de séchage/activation (5) situé en aval, suivi d'un cylindre de transfert (6) vers un deuxième cylindre de pression (7). Ce dernier collabore avec au moins un dispositif d'impression d'un élément de sécurité (13). <IMAGE>
