High-resolution engraving with HelioKlischograph systems

HQH Pro improves the legibility and appearance of fine text and graphics

HQH Pro uses a new concept based on high-resolution engraving data to improve gravure reproduction with the HelioKlischograph, XtremeEngraving, and Cellaxy. Time-consuming manual work is replaced by an automated standardized process.


Nowadays, gravure reproduction requires considerable manual interventions in prepress. HQH Pro helps automate and standardize part of this work. While fine text and graphics generally need reworking in prepress to ensure they do not print too thinly or disappear completely, HQH Pro carries out this work in an automated process that is standardized, in line with the specifications in the job ticket, and delivering results that can thus be reproduced at any time. What makes HQH Pro particularly special is that, unlike conventional prepress tools, it prevents letters and contours from blurring and running together. A character’s features are retained, which enhances legibility. HQH Pro now helps to bridge the gap exists today between the Epson proof and the gravure printed results. Using HQH Pro, the two prints look much closer than before regarding text and graphics appearance.


The new HQH Pro now works with high-resolution engraving data, as already used for direct laser engraving with Cellaxy and for high-resolution engraving with XtremeEngraving. With HQH Pro, the increased resolution now also benefits standard engraving on the HelioKlischograph.
