Becker Vacuum Pumps are so Popular in the Printing Industry


Becker vacuum pumps hold repros down tightly during exposure. They can also be used to clamp down printing plates for the process of laser engraving. They can also handle printing plates during discharge and can remove dust during the CTP process.


The Becker Variair system is considered state of the art for helping printing operations achieve short changeover times and high printing speeds. As you may have guessed from the name, Variair controls the flow of air depending upon whatever is required at the moment. This removes the need for valve systems, which can be fault-prone due to elaborate design.

You can use the control panel of the printing machine to operate the Variair system, but it is also compatible with most of the popular bus interfaces.

Paper Finishing

Becker vacuum pumps and compressors can help in literally every phase of paper finishing, such as punching, cutting, folding, stapling, collating, laminating and bookbinding. Becker vacuum pumps are built to provide high performance with low maintenance, while avoiding defects and downtime.
