Rubber Blanket & Packing Solutions

Birkan GmbH is one of Germany’s oldest graphic arts distributors. The company was established in 1924 as Birkner & Kandlbinder OHG with its own patent for the Triumph rubber blanket – a revolutionary invention at the time. Birkan continues to enjoy great success with offset rubber blankets, which are converted at its in-house production facility – one of the biggest and most modern anywhere in Europe – and exported to more than 80 countries worldwide.

Direct laser engraving – a relatively new business segment – is dedicated to the manufacture of elastomer plates for suppliers of flexible packaging, labels, cups and offset varnishes. Direct laser engraving is gentle on the environment because no solvents are required – from the software to the XL fibre laser, Birkan uses only the very latest technology.

Web Fed Intaglio Presses & Overhauling

Cattaneo Meccanica S.p.a was founded in 1944, specializing in the manufacture and assembly of particular mechanical components. During the 1990’s the family company continued to work with total commitment and resolution achieving success in the engineering industry and decided to expand internationally in the field of printing industry.

In 2011, a new division was established, Cattaneo Security, whose uniqueness is the ability of design and construction of high-quality web fed intaglio printing presses, prepress equipment with direct laser engraving system, polishing system and rubber cutting machine especially developed for our webfed press. Constantly in search of new solutions, Cattaneo Security has created a department of Research & Development with skilled engineers, devoted to the constant improvement of products and the realization of tailored projects requested by the customers.

The most significant project coming out from our laboratories and now widely appreciated is Helios HD, the direct laser engraving system for intaglio plates and RCM II, a special Rubber Cutting Machine for intaglio inking cylinders, both of them perfectly compatible with Komori and KBA presses. 

To complete our range of products and service, the close collaboration with consolidated companies successfully  engaged in the refurbishment of banknote printing machines, result of which brings   Cattaneo Security  in the position to offer to the high security market a complete  maintenance and overhauling of KBA machines.

Intaglio Water treatment solutions

GWT Membraflow GmbH is a German based company offering filtration plants using ceramic membranes in a broad area of applications. Furthermore, our portfolio of services includes the electrical engineering, programming as well as supply of highly automated control systems. Due to the services we are offering in these two business areas we are able to offer our customers fully automated filtration systems, which are also used in the security printing industry. Thereby, our systems are used for recycling accumulated wiping solution at the Intaglio printing process, where it is possible to achieve recovery rates of up to 98% in the daily printing process. As a result, the liquid waste that have to be disposed of can be reduced to a very minimum, whereas using the ceramic membrane filtration technology is the most economically and environmental friendly process for recovering the wiping solution while printing banknotes.
