New cutsheet finishing solutions from Tecnau

Tecnau will be exhibiting a new cutsheet finishing solution at Print4All, which will be held from 29 May to 1 June at Fiera Milano Rho, near Milan.

In Stand C36 – Pad 20, Tecnau, in collaboration with BÖWE SYSTEC S.p.A., Tecnau’s exclusive distributor for Italy, will showcase the new sheetfed cut and stack solution ­— Stack 1010. The system can convert multiple-up impositions on B3 and smaller sheets into trimmed, stacked finished pages ready for use or for further binding or stitching processes.

Stack 1010 slits, cuts, trims, removes gutters/bleeds and stacks a wide array of applications from transactional and direct mail to commercial book and magazine products, without offline guillotining.

The solution can be configured with additional modules for dynamic perforating and punching to make possible on a single run a wide array of commercial applications, such as spiral coil bound booklets, calendars and workbooks with tear-off pages.

“The line is targeted at customers with high-volume sheetfed printers. While keeping the full flexibility of cutsheet production with varying paper types and formats, the Tecnau solution simplifies and automates the finishing process, dramatically reducing manual handling and ensuring document integrity through the complete process,” says Stefano De Marco, sales and marketing director at Tecnau.

All finishing modules are compliant with the Industry 4.0 standards set by the company, including remote diagnostics, real-time production supervision, software download and data analysis. The powerful tools quickly support products in the field and allow Tecnau to stay close to every customer, irrespective of where they are located.

The sheetfed Stack 1010 joins Tecnau’s family of production finishing solutions – roll-fed systems offered by Tecnau include unwinders and rewinders, cutting and stacking systems, dynamic perforating and punching units, vision and data integrity control systems and Libra solutions for book on demand, including dynamic binders and three-side trimmers.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
