Technotrans set to unveil enhanced portfolio at drupa

Focus on energy-efficient cooling and liquid technology

Peter Böcker, deputy sales manager at Technotrans

With the guiding principle, ‘Empowering the future of print’, Technotrans is presenting innovative cooling and fluid technologies for offset, digital, and flexographic printing at this year’s drupa. Their exhibition presence is all about sustainable and economical solutions that are setting new industry standards in terms of energy efficiency and resource conservation.

Evidence of this includes the new future-proof equipment generations featuring the natural and environmentally friendly refrigerant R290, which the company is showcasing in Düsseldorf. In addition, Technotrans provides insights at its stand into how customer proximity and service quality can be significantly increased through digitalization.

“With our technology, we offer our customers process-reliable solutions that will significantly reduce the CO2 footprint in their print production and will also meet all guidelines and standards in the future,” says Peter Böcker, deputy sales manager at Technotrans.

“And we make no compromises, Technotrans products are high-tech systems that achieve high performance and optimal energy efficiency through precise application-specific design – naturally, of the highest quality and with global service.”

At the Technotrans stand, visitors can expect several exhibits in the area of liquid technology. Technotrans is presenting for the first time the alpha.c combination unit for dampening solution preparation and ink unit temperature control with the natural refrigerant R290.

Ink supply with a system: Technotrans offers modularly constructed, custom ink supply systems – from the ink room to the ink fountain filling.

Also on display is the established beta.c eco combination unit with high-precision measurement, control, and dosing technology, along with effective water inlet control. In addition, Technotrans is showing a resource-saving dampening solution purification system that requires no consumables. In the offset sector, the conventional and UV ink supply is a particular focus of the exhibition, with precise measurement and dosing.

Thermal management for printing processes

In thermal management, Technotrans concentrates on its new ECOtec.chiller xtend with natural refrigerant R290. The modular system is particularly suited to digital printing requirements: thanks to numerous equipment options, the chiller can be precisely tailored to individual needs. But the xtend.line offers not just flexibility; it also provides a high level of energy efficiency, power density, and economic efficiency. The refrigerant usage is up to 60 percent lower than that of conventional solutions.

For packaging printing applications, Technotrans presents integrated cooling systems for UV drying units. Technotrans also develops customized cooling solutions perfectly adapted to the UV sector. Central to this is a holistic approach to sustainability: through smart networking of cooling and drying systems in energy-efficient overall systems, the thermal management specialist demonstrates practical ways to make printing processes environmentally friendly.

In the field of thermal management, Technotrans focuses on its new ECOtec.chiller xtend with the natural refrigerant R290.

Cabinet concept turns 35 

This focus on sustainability is also reflected in the compact design of all Technotrans products. At drupa, the cabinet concept first introduced by Technotrans celebrates its 35th anniversary. The concept saves space, is particularly service-friendly, and can optimally realize different individual functions within it. As a result, a complete system designed in the cabinet concept reduces packaging material and simplifies logistics.

Technotrans expands service capabilities

Technotrans is also making its after-sales service more sustainable. For decades the solution provider has been a reliable partner of the printing industry and offers customers a comprehensive package including extensive maintenance and service functions. The company consistently relies on digitalization to increase speed and efficiency while minimizing the CO2 footprint. This includes, among other things, the expansion of remote service and the use of augmented reality.

“We work very closely with our clients and understand the industry’s requirements. This knowledge is the most important basis for the further development of our products and the needs-based service,” emphasizes Böcker. “That is why we look forward to the dialogue during drupa and to new impulses for the further development of the printing industry of the future – in line with our motto: Empowering the future of print.”

Technotrans will exhibit at drupa 2024 in Düsseldorf from 28 May to 7 June, Hall 1, Stand B10.

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.
