What is web printing?
Contrary to the name, web printing has nothing to do with the Internet or online printing. Web printing, or web offset printing, differs from traditional lithographic sheet fed printing in that, instead of using individual sheets, printing is carried out on a continuous roll of paper or other substrate, allowing for faster print speeds.
Web offset printers consist of an infeed system, which controls the tension of the paper as it enters the press, several printing units that function much like a sheet-fed printer, an inking system, a dampening system, a plate cylinder, a blanket cylinder and an impression cylinder, as well as a delivery section which cuts the paper to the required size.
