The market characteristics are similar to other polygraphic productions. The reaction of the sleeve and roller producer must be very fast and the supply must be realized within several days from the order, which makes the logistics between the supplier companies very difficult.
The elastomer producers are very often not in direct contact with the printing company.
Competitor advantages of GRAVITECH s.r.o.
- packet product from one hand (we secure: prepress and data preparation -> sleeve production – gravure – logistics – know-how and service).
- the fast possibility of creative design artwork direct from our onside Artwork studio.
- in the direct connection with the studio, laser, and sleeve producer we can supply free know-how.
- we have a big stock possibility of different air mandrel diameters for sleeve production and engraving of sleeves.
- standard sleeves (EPDM, SBR, NBR, Hybrid) in the raw materials and laminate tubes on stock
