    Tecnau Exhibits New Finishing Solutions for Books and Commercial Print at drupa

    Ivrea, Italy (April 2016) – Building on its deep foundation in providing leading-edge, reliable solutions to transactional and direct-mail customers, Tecnau will continue its increasing focus on the books and graphic arts marketplaces during the upcoming drupa event in Dusseldorf, Germany, 31 May – 10 June.

    Tecnau’s drupa exhibition mirrors its new product design investments in the books and commercial print marketplaces, as the company shows multiple equipment lines targeted toward customers in these segments:

    • Highlighted in the Tecnau stand (Hall 8a, stand D63) is Libra One, providing book block assembly behind the new Canon Ocè ColorStream 6000 Chroma. Libra One is a fully integrated and automated system, allowing variability from one book to the next in height, width, thickness and imposition.  With Libra One’s ability to produce “books-of-one”, users can slash book stocks to zero, reducing dramatically paper waste and the risk of unsold inventory.  The system enables users to reach new markets where short runs are mandatory, such as manuals, limited editions, and new authors publishing.
    • Tecnau announces general availability of the new Libra One CS, a Libra One model supporting sheet-fed operations. Libra One CS eliminates the manual guillotine process and automatically transforms single sheets up to 13” x 19” in size into pre-glued book blocks ready for inline or nearline binding. The unit automatically changes from 2-up to 4-up imposition and back with no make-ready time, at a constant speed up to 16,000 sheets per hour, even when running book of one production.
    • Tecnau is excited to show its new Stacker s25 in conjunction with the established Cutter c23. The Stacker s25 features a new gripper technology to provide reliable, damage-free handling of heavy-ink-coverage graphic arts applications. Cutter c23 has dual rotary knives to sheet the web using single cut or variable double strip cut for full bleed color printing or removal of inkjet flush lines.
    • Also shown on the Cutter c23/Stacker s25 is Tecnau’s WebVision quality monitoring system. WebVision guarantees print quality, and goes beyond to offer significant data integrity and workflow testing capabilities.
    • Tecnau presents in the stand an expanded version of Tecnau Connect (formerly known as PrePost Manager), a central platform to control the most complex Tecnau finishing lines, collect data and generate reports, enable remote technical support and perform essential integrity controls.
    • Tecnau announces the new TC 7000 W cutter, supporting web widths up to 560mm (22”). The guillotine cutter supports a wide range of media, from 50gsm up to 250gsm. As with all products in Tecnau’s TC 7000 series, it can be combined with multiple output solutions, including an offset stacker, a shingling conveyor and various third party finishing devices.
    • The company announces availability of two solutions for long sheet cutting and stacking, the new Stacker s28 and High Pile Stacker h10. The Stacker s28 is based on the well-established Stacker s20 and is designed to collect up to 250mm-tall offset stacks of sheets, up to 28” long (710mm), with automatic job separation, in order to support the increasing demand for short run commercial print applications such as calendars, posters and banners. The High Pile Stacker h10 is aimed at higher-volume users, as it collects high piles up to 700mm-tall on a pallet for easy transport to further finishing. The Stacker h10 offers continuous delivery (with no pause for stack removal), supporting continuous print operations, and an optional cardboard feeder for job separation.
    • Finally, Tecnau introduces NewsReady, an entry level solution for digitally-printed newspaper production. The modular design offers a high degree of flexibility for users, allowing the system to be configured for short run newspaper production and then changed over to 1up and 2up offset stack output such as books and commercial print applications. The reconfiguration is quick and simple and can be performed multiple times per day in order to maximize the utilization of continuous feed digital printers.

    Comments Giuliano De Marco, Tecnau CEO, “Tecnau is excited to show leading-edge finishing solutions for books and commercial print at drupa 2016.  Our drupa exhibition signals our commitment to provide users with solutions that allow them to fully exploit the opportunities presented by today’s high-speed inkjet printing engines.”

    Tecnau will be announcing soon its multiple exhibitions with printing and finishing partners at drupa,

    where a number of additional new products will be unveiled.

    Tecnau Unveils Multiple New Products

    at drupa Partner Stands

    Ivrea, Italy (April 2016) – In addition to the Libra One book-block production system and new Stack 2325 system presented in the Tecnau stand (Hall 8a, stand D63 – see dedicated press release) – Tecnau will be exhibiting both new and established solutions with a broad variety of digital printing and finishing partners:

    • Ricoh – Tecnau unveils its new Roll 9 system in twin showings around drupa. At the Ricoh stand (Hall 8a, stand B46), Roll 9’s Unwinder u9 feeds roll paper to the Ricoh Pro VC60000 continuous feed inkjet printer, with the Rewinder r9 forming rolls on the back end.  Featuring adjustable web tension control, Roll 9 accommodates the wide range of tensions required for varying paper specifications to be run by varying high-speed color inkjet printers.
    • ScreenRoll 9 is also shown on the Screen stand (Hall 8a, stand C11), providing feeding and finishing for the Screen Truepress Jet520 HD.
    • Canon – Completing the exhibition of Libra One on Tecnau’s own stand, Tecnau’s Zero Speed Splicer u40 provides roll feeding for Canon’s new high-speed digital printing system, Ocè ColorStream 6000, in the neighboring Canon stand (Hall 8A, stand B50-7); the printer in turn supplies printed output in-line to Libra One. The Zero Speed Splicer u40 allows roll changes with virtually no printer downtime, maximizing printer productivity and eliminating paper waste associated with printer stoppages due to roll depletion. Thanks to the smart interface developed by both companies, the Splicer u40 allows on-the-fly media variation including automatic loading of print parameters in order to support true book of one production with variations in 4 dimensions: height, width, length and paper type.
    • Elsewhere on the Canon stand, Tecnau introduces the new TC 1530 C2 cut-sheet dynamic perforator.  The TC 1530 C2 is integrated with Canon’s recently introduced Océ VarioPrint i300 color sheet-fed digital press, providing in-line dynamic perforating to a sheet-fed digital press in an industry first.  Coupons, convenience checks, remittance stubs – these are just a few of the broad range of applications users may create page-by-page within a single print run.
    • Xerox – Tecnau is proud to exhibit its high-speed Roll 20 roll-to-roll solution along with the Stack 2020 cut/stack system in the Xerox stand (Hall 8B, stand A62) on the just-announced Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press. Supporting speeds up to 254 meters per minute, the Unwinder u20 features a new airshaft design for smooth feeding of a paper roll up to 22.5” wide and 52” in diameter into the digital press. The Unwinder u20 offers automatic detection for roll feed direction and semi-automatic roll loading.  The Rewinder r20 has an automated loop control for quick and easy loading of the paper web, as well as an automatic tension control system for an easy switch between applications of varying paper weights.
    • Also on the Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press, Stack 2020 provides sheeted output, with a focus at drupa on a variety of book applications.
    • Finally on the Xerox stand, Tecnau exhibits its SheetFeeder NV roll feed system for the Xerox Nuvera 314 sheet-fed digital printer.  SheetFeeder NV sits next to the input side of the printer and includes a quick-change unwinder and precision cutter.  By feeding as many as 60,000 sheets from a single 50” diameter roll, users print more in less time while lowering paper and labor costs.
    • HP – At HP’s stand in Hall 17, Tecnau will show its CutReady cut/stack solution finishing output behind the HP Indigo w6800. CutReady supports a broad array of applications, media types, and paper weights – completing one up, two up, and three up output in standard photo sizes including 4×6, 5×7, 6×8, 10×8, and 12×18 inches. It delivers lay-flats for offline finishing, book covers with inline or offline lamination, calendars, canvas and other specialty products, as well as long- sheet applications such as posters and banners, while ensuring high accuracy cross-cutting and side-trimming for full bleed applications.
    • Horizon – Tecnau displays the Stack 2020 cut/stack system inline to the Horizon book finishing solution, including the BQ-470 binder and HT-1000 Three knife trimmer, in a pair of partner locations at drupa. In the Horizon stand (Hall 6, stand D05), Stack 2020 is configured with an Unwinder 550, Cutter c20, Stacker s20 and Transport Table 568 to support a dual output delivery: the Stacker s20 can be bypassed to send single sheets to the Horizon system or alternatively can be used to cut and stack book blocks, with 90 degree delivery and offline finishing. The Roll to finish line is suitable for medium to short run production.
    • FujiFilm – On the FujiFilm stand (Hall 8B, stand A25), Tecnau’s Stack 2020 again delivers sheets to the Horizon book finishing solution, this time in a nearline configuration to FujiFilm’s Jet Press 540w.
    • Böwe Systec – Tecnau presents in Hall 6, stand B39 the Unwinder u10 inline to Böwe Systec Fusion Cross, high speed inserting system, supporting a broad variety of envelop formats and media variation, for the transaction and direct mail markets.

    Tecnau values highly these opportunities to exhibit the fruits of our close relationships with our many partners both in the digital printing and finishing marketplaces.  We’ve placed a number of new product offerings in partner stands at drupa, so we encourage our customers and prospects to visit partners as well as Tecnau’s own stand to see the latest in the world of feeding and finishing innovations for digital print,” said Giuliano De Marco, CEO of Tecnau.

    Maqprint signs up for growth with Libra 800 investment

    Maqprint, a leading French catalogue and book printer, has invested in the Tecnau Libra 800 Book Finishing Line in order to strengthen its position in digital book finishing and enter the book on demand market.

    The company expanded its digital print operations in 2011 with the addition of an HP T230 Inkjet Web Press to secure growth in the short run market and offer an even higher level of flexibility and service to its customers. Following a careful analysis of the new technologies being presented at drupa 2016, Maqprint purchased a new Tecnau Libra 800 finishing line, deciding it offers the best response to the rapidly changing requirements of the book market in France.

    “We have chosen Tecnau as our Partner based on their capability to listen to our requests and respond to our demands, configuring Libra 800 in order to fulfill our customers’ expectations”, states Philippe Sans, Chief Executive Office of Maqprint. “Libra 800 is very competitive for short runs and will allow Maqprint to successfully produce single copy catalogues and books. The choice of Tecnau gives us certainty of being well positioned in providing the leading technology to our customers.”

    Libra 800 is modular in design, and has been configured by Maqprint with one input channel from roll, with slit merge and dual web cutter to produce variable book-blocks which are automatically delivered to the binder. Libra 800’s robot picks and places book blocks directly into the clamp while covers are fed, side trimmed, front cut and scored according to the book block size. After staging on a conveyor table, the book is transferred to the Libra VT, Variable Three-Knife Trimmer, to be cut to finished size.

    Libra 800 produces up to 800 books/hour. Continuous size changeovers in book assembly, cover preparation, binding and trimming are performed without operator intervention and with zero make-ready time. Production is tracked and controlled by Tecnau Connect, a proprietary software which offers workflow integrity control features such as book-cover matching, page sequence and missing pages checks, and reports any deviations or errors as well as production statistics. The platform also offers remote connectivity for factory support to guide the operator and service team towards problem solving.

    “With Libra 800 Maqprint will strengthen its ability to produce short runs down to book of one output and deliver to its customers quality books and catalogues with very short turn-around time” states Stefano De Marco, Tecnau sales & marketing Director EMEA. “Thanks to the flexibility of the solution, Maqprint will be able to print by order, finish by order and deliver by order, with an optimized workflow and lean logistical process”.
