Title: FULLY AUTOMATED PRODUCTION SYSTEM FOR GRAVURE CYLINDER AND PRODUCTION METHOD FOR GRAVURE CYLINDER EMPLOYING SAME
Abstract:
Provided is a fully automated production system for a gravure cylinder, whereby gravure cylinders can be produced more rapidly than in the past, space requirements can be reduced, unmanned operation is possible even at night, and dust production throughout the process can be reduced. The system has a processing chamber (A) having a handling area for a first industrial robot which chucks and handles a platemaking roll, and a processing chamber (B) having a handling area for a second industrial robot which chucks and handles a platemaking roll. The processing chamber (A) and the processing chamber (B) communicate, and a vacuum film deposition device is situated in at least one of the handling area for the first industrial robot in the processing chamber (A) and the handling area for the second industrial robot in the processing chamber (B). A process to form a base deposited film layer and a process to form a DLC film are conducted by the vacuum film deposition device.
