Durability and precision

Primarily used in industry and the aeronautical sector, this technique is used for high precision marking of aluminium plates, with excellent UV stability and corrosion and abrasion resistance.

OXY has been developing its expertise in photoengraving for over 20 years.


This printing process, also known as Metalphoto printing, exposes photosensitive anodized aluminium plates to film negatives. The exposure creates a latent image that is revealed in developing and fixing baths. A silver-based black image is formed in the plate.
