Abstract
(EN)
There is described an intaglio printing plate coating apparatus (1) comprising a vacuum chamber (3) having an inner space (30) adapted to receive at least one intaglio printing plate (10) to be coated, a vacuum system (4) coupled to the vacuum chamber (3) adapted to create vacuum in the inner space (30) of the vacuum chamber (3), and a physical vapour deposition (PVD) system (5) adapted to perform deposition of wear-resistant coating material under vacuum onto an engraved surface (10a) of the intaglio printing plate (10), which physical vapour deposition system (5) includes at least one coating material target (51, 52) comprising a source of the wear-resistant coating material to be deposited onto the engraved surface (10a) of the intaglio printing plate (10). The vacuum chamber (3) is arranged so that the intaglio printing plate (10) to be coated sits substantially vertically in the inner space (30) of the vacuum chamber (3) with its engraved surface (10a) facing the at least one coating material target (51, 52). The intaglio printing plate coating apparatus (1) further comprises a movable carrier (6) located within the inner space (30) of the vacuum chamber (3) and adapted to support and cyclically move the intaglio printing plate (10) in front of and past the at least one coating material target (51, 52).

La présente invention se rapporte à un appareil de revêtement de plaque d'impression en creux (1) qui comprend une chambre à vide (3) qui comporte un espace interne (30) conçu pour recevoir au moins une plaque d'impression en creux (10) qui doit être recouverte, un système de vide (4) couplé à la chambre à vide (3) et conçu pour créer un vide dans l'espace interne (30) de la chambre à vide (3), ainsi qu'un système de dépôt physique en phase vapeur (5) conçu pour effectuer sous vide le dépôt d'un matériau de revêtement résistant à l'usure sur une surface gravée (10a) de la plaque d'impression en creux (10), ledit système de dépôt physique en phase vapeur (5) comprenant au moins une cible de matériau de revêtement (51, 52) qui comprend une source du matériau de revêtement résistant à l'usure qui doit être déposé sur la surface gravée (10a) de la plaque d'impression en creux (10). La chambre à vide (3) est agencée de telle sorte que la plaque d'impression en creux (10) qui doit être recouverte se trouve sensiblement verticalement dans l'espace interne (30) de la chambre à vide (3), sa surface gravée (10a) faisant face à ladite ou auxdites cibles de matériau de revêtement (51, 52). L'appareil de revêtement de plaque d'impression en creux (1) comprend en outre un chariot mobile (6) placé dans l'espace interne (30) de la chambre à vide (3) et conçu pour supporter et déplacer de manière cyclique la plaque d'impression en creux (10) devant et à l'arrière de la ou des cibles de matériau de revêtement (51, 52).
