Tecnau’s Libra 800 has won a European Digital Press Association (EDP) Award 2018 in the category finishing/enhancement as the best book-on-demand postpress solution during Fespa Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin.

“Tecnau Libra 800 was the choice as it enables continuous production of single copy books without manual adjustments from roll to finished book at speeds up to 800 books per hour,” said Stefano De Marco, sales and marketing director at Tecnau.

The perfect binding system allows printers to produce short-run digitally printed books, catalogs and magazines. The highly modular and configurable solution supports on-the-fly changeover in book size at speed, ensuring full integrity control page by page and exact matching between book block and cover.

The reliable binding system has been an evolving and growing solution, widening the array of possible applications and driving efficiency and intelligence throughout the complete production workflow. The EDP Award 2018 is a great honor as it recognizes the distinct advantages, technological innovation and application flexibility that the Tecnau Libra 800 book-on-demand solution offers to its users.

The European Digital Press Association
The European Digital Press Association (EDP) yearly honors the best technological developments with the popular EDP Awards. These are selected according to criteria like achievement, quality and costs. Thus, the EDP Awards offer orientation and give a neutral recommendation for purchase decisions.

The EDP Awards are an open contest for all products without any limitation or provenience. Out of more than 120 entries in 2018, the EDP Technical Committee selected 29 products as EDP Award winners within eight main categories.

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.
