The Tresu H5i G3 is designed for automation of special coating applications enabling sheet-fed and web offset printers to save resources while exploiting high-speed coating with full control and no risk of micro-foaming and blisters. With H5i G3 controlling the WB, UV or e-beam coating application, operators can now save resources and exploit the full creative potential of the coating media for creating eye-catching designs and strong branding – also with high viscosity and high flow.

The dual-diaphragm pump circulator – one supply and one return pump – features auto-adjusting and fully automated operations of coating pressure and connected tray level sensors, flow sensors, supply and waste level sensors as well as an optional anilox IR temperature measurement.

Picking up from the proven third-generation Li series coating circulators, the H5i G3 features an unmatched range of opportunities in automation, connectivity as well as level- and pressure control and enables full and automated control of a range of high-quality complex coating applications.

Used in combination with a Tresu chamber doctor blade system the Tresu H5i G3 provides full control of the enclosed circulation from the bucket to the chamber, where the coating fills the cells of the anilox roller. This control pressure technology system from Tresu prevents any contamination of air inside the chamber and eliminates micro foaming and undesired blistering of the print.

Tresu’s HMI with intuitive graphical user interface optimizes operators’ start-up times with a fast and easy guide to basic start-up and operation commands and the ability to access a range of automated operation modes as well.

Comprehensive data logging with statistical insights for industry 4.0 operations is now a real opportunity using the ethernet connection of the Tresu H5i G3. Furthermore, the entire platform of the new circulator is 100% modular and ready to adapt to future needs and modes of operation by unlocking already built-in additional features on demand.

Henrik Kristensen, vice-president, Tresu Ancillary, comments, “The H5i G3 makes an important contribution to production efficiency and automation of advanced coating applications and is the optimal solution if you have both high viscosity and high flow volume requirements. The H5i G3 is easily retrofitted into existing coating applications as a stand-alone product or integrated inline into the latest designs of OEM coating solutions with full software integration.”

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.
