Re: P2 for Printing Money



Burt,
Printing of paper currency (the legal way, anyhow) is usually performed via rotogravure.

Please feel free to post specific questions at the "Ask PNEAC"  portion of the PNEAC Web site, or via the Printech listserv.

Forwarded on behalf of Mr. Burton Hammer:

I've had a request from someone at a national bank in Asia who wants to
know about P2 and waste mgmt options for the national money printing
operations.  I volunteered to recycle their unwanted money but they
would rather go further up the pipe.  I suppose our own US
treasury must be doing some EMS and P2 work on printing since they are
fed facilities covered by the various exec orders.  I don't know what
kind of printing ops are used for money, is it lithography, offset, or
whatever.  If I can get that info I can use the many printing P2
resources for those processes.  Any leads or refs would be greatly
appreciated, thanks a lot.

Note - it might not be wise to announce that you have lots of experience
printing money yourself...
