Offset is the most traditional printing technique. Also known as offset lithography, this machine is known for its quality and its ability to produce and print quickly. The offset is composed of several groups of plates. Each plate corresponds to one zone of the document that needs printing. The plate is set up with the appropriate ink and is then printed in the specific zone of the document.
The ink is initially contained in an inkwell, and is then transferred into the printing rollers by an inking unit. The rollers will then stick to the printing form, which is composed of letters and/or overlapping shapes for inking these forms onto the offset plate.
