LITHOGRAPHIC PRINTING OFFICE

 

Lithographic Printing Office is one of the most important units of Survey of Bangladesh. It is an industrial production unit and plays a vital role in map production. Survey  of  Bangladesh prints various kind of maps, charts and forms with modern printing technology.

 

Lithographic Printing Office no longer uses the heavy cumbersome stones but instead use light, flexible metal ( Ps plate, Thermal plate) plates. Now modern technics are used in lithographic plate preparation and printing.

 

Map production chain starts with taking of aerial photographs/satelite images and is completed through the process of plotting, editing and cartographic work in the process of map printing.In map printing, the original impressions are in 4 colors i.e. YMCK( Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Krisp/Black) as film or soft copy are used.   

 

 

Pre Printing Process:

 

To start map printing process it is need to making plate. There are a two types of plate making job. One from positives to plate and another from cartographic map data to plate.  The first noe process became obsilute. Now a days Lithographic printing office is using Computer to Plate (CtP) technology in stead of making film positives, it will directly make plates of desired colors from computerized cartographic map data. This CtP technology enhances the quality and productivity of map printing.     

 

Plate Making Section : There are two plate making sections in Lithographic Printing Office. One is Helio section and another is Plastic section.

 

Helio section : In helio section there are two CtPs (Computer to Plate) machine (1)  Screen Plate Writer, (2) Optotech One Plate Writer.
