Tresu, a leading provider of flexographic printing technology and coating solutions with more than 35 years of proven performance, introduced the third-generation coating circulator enabling sheetfed and web offset printers to save resources while exploiting high-speed coating, with full control and no the risk of micro-foaming and blisters.

Introducing a new range of opportunities in automation, connectivity and level- and pressure control, the new L10i Aqua/UV and L30i Combi G3 pushes the boundaries for automated high-quality coating operations in offset printing.

Offset coating applications will now benefit from high-quality coating with an increased product life and more efficient use of resources with less waste – increasing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

Henrik Kristensen, vice president, Tresu Ancillary explains, “The new L10i Aqua/UV and L30i Combi G3 opens new opportunities for controlling coating operations and is proof of our dedication to delivering benchmark solutions to the offset industry. It really pushes the boundaries for automation, level control and connectivity, but still features our proven pressure technology eliminating air and micro foaming. In short, with the new L10i Aqua/UV and L30i Combi G3 as a central part controlling your UV or water-based coating application you can now save resources and still deliver uniform high-speed coatings with creative, exciting effects – tactile as well as visually exciting – including coatings with micro-encapsulated scents”.

The built-in intelligence of the new L10i Aqua/UV and L30i Combi G3 features a range of control opportunities with automation and auto adjustments of – as well as recommendations and warnings for – coating pressure, tray level sensors, flow sensors, connected supply and waste level sensors as well as anilox temperature measurements.

Comprehensive data logging for Industry 4.0 operations and insights into statistics, hardware diagnostics, and maintenance recommendations are now possible – either hardwired to a PLC or by IP communication (OPC-UA or socket connection).

The new HMI secures that operators waste less time both in the start-up, but also operating the coating application, as the new graphical user interfaces with intuitive universal icons, signals, and colors easily guide operators through operations.

In case future features are needed and modes of operations change, new opportunities and a swift answer to seasonal shifts in brand owners’ design and volume of demand can be installed in the configurable software or implemented in the modular hardware of the new platform.

The L10i Aqua/UV and L30i Combi G3 is a superior 2-in-1 solution for both aqueous and UV coatings running in separate circuits and it can be operated as a stand-alone product or integrated inline into an existing print setup.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
