Printing form and an image obtained with this printing form

 

(57) Abstract:

Relief printing section 2 of the plate-matrix printing, designed for applying to a paint across its surface contains at least one engraving pattern (gravure) 4, intended to fill the same paint that is used for applying for relief printing area (the area for a high print). The print area for a high print preferably has a granular structure formed by pixels that are evenly distributed over the surface. 2 C. and 8 C.p. f-crystals, 3 ill.

The invention relates to a printed form having at least one relief (letterpress) printing site intended for applying to a printing ink across its surface, and to an image (picture) obtained by using such a printed form.

Known to be used for production of securities, such as banknotes, protective paint, applied at least on one area of banking ticket, known by the name or abbreviation OVI (optically variable ink.), that means optically variable ink, which is a change in color depending on the angle al is a wealth of such paints is their high cost, because of what their use is not very widespread.

Has already been proposed to use these colors in combination with the method of gravure printing or the way serigraphic printing. However, both these methods have drawbacks. The application of the method of gravure printing is too expensive due to significant paint loss associated with operation remove the excess water from the printing form. The use of expensive printing technique in combination with expensive paints an obstacle to the application of such remedies.

As for serigraphy, this printing method, on the one hand, too slow and, on the other hand, it is not possible to get fine lines or guilloche pattern (a grid of intersecting thin lines), and only evenly painted surface. These plain dyed printed paint areas in the form of any desired geometric shapes: star, rectangle, circle, can be easily tampered with and, therefore, do not provide adequate protection.

Known printed form that allows you to perform a protective figure, which is difficult to forge in the manufacturing process of securities [1].

From the same publication is a well-known image, poluchka, known printing form and an image obtained with it, doesn't apply lossless special printing ink, namely, paint, optically changing colour for printing protective figure.

The basis of the invention is the creation of the printing form, which is due to the peculiarities of the relief printing property, intended for use on paints, would apply lossless special printing ink, namely, paint, optically changing colour for printing protective figure, as well as the difficult task of creating faked images produced using such a printed form.

This task, according to one aspect of the invention, is solved by means of the printing form, which, according to the invention has at least one relief printing site intended for applying to a paint across its surface, and which contains at least one engraved illustration gravure intended to fill it with the same paint that is used for drawing on the relief printing area.

Preferably, at least part of the surface of a relief printing is poverhnosti.

It is advisable that the grooves of the engraved pattern for gravure printing had more depth than depression granular structure. It is desirable that the hollow granular structure had a depth in the range of 5 to 30 μm, and the grooves engraved picture had a depth ranging from 20 to 80 μm.

It is possible that the height of the relief printing plots were in the range from 200 to 1000 microns.

It is useful to have engraved on the bottom of the figure for gravure printing was performed linear raster.

Permissible to print the form contained at least one relief printing area on the surface of which was made engraved illustration for gravure printing, and the plot made in plain site for typographic printing method.

Most preferably, the printed form was made with the possibility of applying paint, which changes colour depending on optical conditions.

This task, according to another aspect of the invention, is solved through the images using the printing plate in the form of a pattern corresponding to the contour of the printing area, which, according to the invention, is sobhi and same color the first, corresponding to the figure for gravure printing, made on the printed form, the paint, which made this image, is preferably optically variable color paint.

Preferably, outside speaker picture image was formed by pixels.

So get printed protective figure, such as banking, ticket, in any configuration, such as square, rectangular or round, consisting of a combination of some specific uniformly colored background of a certain color and the background relief image, made with the same paint, the same color, due to the pattern for gravure printing, engraved printing section of the printing form. This relief pattern has the form received gravure printing, but the paint is applied and it is printed on the printing method, i.e. without removal of excess paint, which is much simpler than the method of gravure printing and, in addition, more economical.

Another advantage of the structure of the printing form is that when the use of very expensive special paint, it allows you to use this paint much Bo the and of which Fig. 1 shows schematically, in section, the section of the printing form according to the invention, in which the dimensions of the various reliefs specially enlarged for clarity; Fig. 2 is a partial top view of this printed form and Fig. 3 - printed form a mixed structure with a plot corresponding to the printed form in Fig. 1 and the other section for printing on the printing method.

The section of the printing form 1, shown in figures 1 and 2, contains in this example, two relief part 2, surface 3 which is the print. This printing surface 3 is provided engraved with a pattern of grooves 4, as on the printed form for gravure printing. As shown in figure 2, this engraved picture is a lying eight, and he imprinted on a sheet of paper in a printed pattern formed by the relief of the paint.

To increase the degree of protection, with the help of this figure can also be provided that the surface of the printing section 3 had a granular structure, consisting of evenly distributed pixels, as shown in the right part of Fig. 1. The bottom 4A of the groove 4 can also have a grid of lines - linear raster.

Wysock a depth of 5 30 μm, and the grooves 4 engraved illustration deeper than the spaces between grains of a granular structure, and their depth can reach 20 to 80 μm. Of course, the depth of the grooves should be greater than the depth of the depressions between the grains of a granular structure. When the depth of the depressions between the grains of a granular structure is close to 30 microns, it is obvious that the depth of the grooves 4 is greater than 30 μm.

The paint on this printing form is carried out uniformly over the entire surface of traditional colorful roller, which is used when printing on paper or this roller, which is used to paint on the matrix with the method of gravure printing, the matrix roller, so that the entire surface 3 of the printing area with patterns in relief (letterpress) was covered with paint and grooves engraved illustration (gravure) would be well filled with paint, but without subsequent removal of excess paint. The thickness of the ink on the printing parts for high print may vary, preferably in the range from 7 μm to 30 μm.

The manufacture of such printed forms can preferably be carried out in the following way: start with engraving pattern of nfiguration protective drawings, which have, for example, a rectangular contour, and removing material on printed form outside of these configurations that have been defined previously, so as to leave only the desired relief areas 2.

In the case where the surface protective area grainy, start on the printed form grained grid-raster, and this granular mesh is preferably only in areas, subsequently forming a relief area, and then this grainy grid perform grooves engraved illustration.

When at the bottom of the grooves 4 provides for the implementation of a grid of lines, the latter is applied after receiving the engraved pattern.

As shown in figure 3, it is also possible the production of printed forms of mixed type with an area of 5, containing the printing area for letterpress (relief) 2, the print surface 3 of which is provided with grooves 4, forming an image engraved (intaglio printing), and area 6 corresponding printed form for ordinary commercial printing multiple relief printing areas with smooth surface. In this case, zone 5 is applied to the ink for printing, changing colour when certain opalene excess paint.

Thus, get the printed form, with which you can easily print multiple protective drawings, distributed across the field of printed securities, containing the protective background and main image. Usually limited to printing one zone of protection.

Printing form according to the invention can be used not only with a special paint. It is clear that it can be used with any type of paint to create at one time and using the same paint homogeneous background with the speakers on the picture.

Such a dimensional relief pattern having the form of figure obtained gravure printing, acting on a homogeneous background the same color as the picture itself, it is very difficult to forge. If in addition to used and optically variable ink, the effect of ducornet reinforced by the fact that under the same angle of view seen embossed on the different facets of orientation, and this paint creates the impression of different colors of these facets depending on their orientation.

The print surface is outside of a relief image, as mentioned above, is smooth and homogeneous. Effect of protection, however, is enhanced if it is I raster. The advantage of such a mesh or grainy background is superior the absorption of paint and the increasing complexity of protective figure.

In the preferred use of optically variable ink effect documnet across the printing surface is enhanced due to the fact that the granular structure and, consequently, the grid-raster also have reflective facet different orientations, giving the impression of different colors.

This granular structure in the form of a linear screen can also be provided at the bottom of the grooves forming the engraved pattern on the printed form, regardless of whether the print surface is grainy or not.
