What’s it like to be a Printing Machinist?
Printing machinists set up and operate letterpress, lithographic, flexographic
and gravure printing presses. They work on a range of printed products
including packaging, stationery, greeting cards, books and newspapers,
depending on the printing method used.
-Offset lithography is the main process of printing and involves producing a print from a plate using a flat surface (planographic). It is used mainly in the production of newspapers, magazines, catalogues, cardboard packaging, books and general printed products.
-Letterpress printing is the oldest form of printing, in which ink is applied to a raised surface and transferred directly to paper through pressure. This process is used mainly as a specialised printing process. The types of printed material produced by this method include stationery and hot-foil stamped and embossed products.
-Flexographic printing uses a raised surface on a flexible rubber or photopolymer plate to produce flexible packaging such as bread bags and confectionary wrappers.
-Gravure printing uses a recessed cylinder to remove excess ink from the paper’s surface, producing an engraved design effect (intaglio). This process is used mainly for long-run packaging work designed for food and other consumables.
Printing machinists work in both small businesses and large manufacturing
companies, and with single and multi-colour printing presses.
