Tecnau announces the opening of the Tecnau Experience Center (TEC) at its corporate headquarters outside of Milan. The facility is available immediately for both live and virtual demonstrations of many of Tecnau’s feeding and finishing solutions for high-speed production digital presses. Aside from the equipment area, the modern facility includes a comfortable reception area, offices, and meeting rooms to facilitate a variety of future customer events.

Systems available for demonstration include versions of the new Revolution 50 series for high-speed cutting and stacking of web-fed inkjet output, the just-announced Stack 1212 for cutting B2/B2+ press sheets down to finished size in a single pass, and a member of Tecnau’s Libra family of book finishing systems, just to name a few.

Tecnau will be cooperating with its many digital press vendor partners to bring in sample papers for finishing equipment demonstrations, showing off a range of digital print applications from transactional to publishing, direct mail to commercial print.

Says Stefano De Marco, Tecnau Managing Director, “We’re very pleased to offer customers, prospects, and partners the opportunity to see a broad range of Tecnau products in action. This is even more true in this time of restricted travel, as we’re able to livestream product demos. And of course, we look forward in the future to hosting live visits to the TEC and to our hometown of Ivrea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
