Gravure Proofing Presses

The GEIGER Gravure Proofing Press Model SGP 1540 is the standard of the industry for more than thirty years, used in the laboratories of most of the leading manufacturers of inks and papers throughout North America, South America and Europe.Cost-conscious production printing houses find the GEIGER Proofing Press profitable in reducing down-time on their large press by first making a test reproduction of the inks to be used on the specific type of stock before going into production.
