At WAN-IFRA 2017, Trelleborg will inform the newspaper industry about the enhancements that have been made to its metal-backed blanket range. Since the last WAN IFRA conference, Trelleborg printing solutions operation has made significant strides in pushing forward the boundaries of offset blanket technology relating to newspaper production.
“Over the last few years, a great deal of work has been carried out at Trelleborg’s extensive R&D facilities at the Lodi Vecchio manufacturing facility in Italy to create offset blanket solutions that match the specific needs of the Indian newspaper market. Printers need the flexibility to customize blankets according to the type of stock they are handling, the press being used and other relevant factors such as press age,” says Maniraju Bora, sales and technical director for the South-West Asia region. “At WAN-IFRA 2017, we will be telling visitors about the enhancements that have been made to our metal-backed blanket range. We are increasingly involved in helping newspaper groups use blanket technology to reduce cost-per-copy on their presses.”
Trelleborg has developed several easy-to-use, downloadable software tools, including a ‘configuration’ product that lets users select the correct blanket by entering the application sector, such as web coldset, web heatset, single-width, double-width, combi or UV. There is also a dealer locator app, which provides a simple way of finding the nearest dealer.
Trelleborg will have a team of experts at its Stand 5.02 at WAN-IFRA 2017, which takes place from 12-14 September in Chennai.
