Teca-Print offers a professional graphics and cliché service for all types of polymer, steel, thin steel and ceramic clichés.
Depending on the type of cliché, print image and customer requirements, engraving is carried out by laser or in the traditional way by means of exposure and washing out or etching.

Our graphic designers are happy to take over the complete creation of the file with your desired print image or check and adapt your supplied files. We are also happy to create a film for you if you would like to expose the cliché yourself.

Engraving and etching methods

Direct laser engraving

With the Teca-Print clichĂ© service for laser engraved polymer clichĂ©s, clichĂ© production is fully automated. After preparation on the computer, your print image is sent directly to the software of the laser device. Thanks to this “computer to clichĂ©” solution, a film is no longer required. The polymer clichĂ©s are engraved with your print image in the exact position using direct laser engraving.

When producing multiple clichés, you not only benefit from consistent quality, but the positional accuracy means that you no longer have to realign the print position after a cliché change with an identical print image.
With our laser etched cliché plates, set-up times and downtimes are minimised.

Cliché plate exposure with LED-UV light

If you would like to produce your own cliché plates in-house, we can supply you with the blank polymer clichés cut to size to suit your machine and punched if required. We also offer the Teca-Print UV exposure cabinet and the complete range of accessories needed for the production of plates.

Polymer clichés consist of a thin metal base plate covered with a UV light-sensitive polymer layer. First, the protective film is removed. The film is then placed on the cliché in the exposure unit. The cliché is exposed to LED UV light under vacuum. After exposure, the soft areas, i.e. the areas where the film has blocked the UV light from the cliché, are washed out with the appropriate washout solution depending on the type of cliché. The cliché is dried with an air jet and then post-exposed and cured in the drying cabinet. The cliché is then ready for printing.

Cliché etching

Teca-Print also offers chemical etching of the cliché for both thin steel and 10 mm steel clichés. After exposure, which is carried out either with LED UV light or a laser, the cliché is etched in the developer bath.
This etching process enables the engraving of the finest print images. Our experienced employees have the latest technical equipment at their disposal. This combination of technology and our expertise is a fundamental requirement for the production of high-quality clichés.

You also benefit from fast delivery times, as etching takes place directly in our in-house cliché laboratory.
