Polar-Mohr develops Polar AirGo Jog for post-press finishing

Polar-Mohr, the Hofheim (Germany) based machine building and technology company, has developed an innovation for postpress finishing. The Polar AirGo Jog is claimed to process entire layers fully automatically. An integrated blower unit is crucial for the systems’ success.

The innovation is driven by the vision of autonomous end-to-end print finishing. The product innovation had its world premiere during the HD Innovation Week.

AirGo Jog automates the loading and jogging process. First, a transomat loading unit takes an entire layer from a pallet and transports it into an automatic jogger. There the usual jogging process begins – with a decisive new component – a blower system. While jogging, two blower units blow air into the cutting layer to ensure a first-class jogging result. The jogged cutting layer is immediately ready for cutting.

With a cycle time of around 60 – 90 seconds for the autonomous processing of a complete cutting layer, the innovation from Hofheim is highly efficient. It can support every postpress department because retrofitting is possible on any cutting system. The AirGo Jog has an intuitive operation via an all-new designed user interface. The product is said to be available at an attractive market price.

The name of the AirGo Jog is derived from the system’s essential elements: air and jogging. Not to be neglected is the significant improvement in ergonomics, as the heavy lifting of paper layers is no longer necessary. Therefore, AirGo is a wordplay, integrating er·go- into the product name.

Polar AirGo Jog will be available from mid-2021.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
