In-line stitching company Tolerans exhibits at IPEX

Monday, May 24, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Tolerans, the world leader in innovative stitching solutions, exhibits at IPEX 2010 as part of the PrintCity Alliance stand in hall 17. Stitching, or stapling, newspapers and commercial print is a growing trend all over the world, mainly because it's highly appreciated by readers and advertisers. And for printers, it doesn't just add value to the product, it's a cost-effective way for a printing operation to broaden its market and increase revenue.

The PrintCity Alliance stand at IPEX 2010 shares a common theme: 'PRINT: LEAN, GREEN, SEEN.

"This goes well in line with our business and mission, says Jan Melin, CEO at Tolerans.

By stitching in-line, at full production speed, printers can reach significant cost savings on the total production cost. In-line stitching offers one seamless way to move part of the finishing process right into the press."

And in this changing media landscape, printers need to look for new business opportunities and maximize the use of their press. By offering stitching, they can use any spare capacity to print inserts, advertising supplements, brochures and magazines, at full production speed.

Stitching has in fact already become the norm in many places, like Europe, and experts believe this paradigm shift is becoming the industry standard.

Tolerans' mission is to ensure a completely worry-free in-line stitching process. "When printers implement in-line stitching technology we have to make sure they increase their production efficiency and get more printing jobs, instead of production problems," says Jan Melin.

Tolerans has been the world leader in the area of in-line stitching since the first stitcher was developed in 1968. The original SPEEDLINER series of stitchers, capable of running at full production speed and beyond, was introduced in 2002 and has proven to be the most reliable array of in-line stitchers on the market. Inspired by this success, Tolerans has now taken it to the next level and created SPEEDLINER 2.0. It's a high-end stitching system that is even easier to maintain and operate, reducing cost of maintenance and minimizing down-time. Our slimmest model, SPEEDLINER S60 Compact, is designed to fit in even the narrowest spaces in the press, perfect for printing plants that haven't had enough space for a stitcher before.

"We have put a lot of effort into developing a system where it's easy to change wear and spare parts without manual adjustments. With the new control system, it's even easier to operate. It indicates when service is needed and all functions are remote-controlled for easy operations. The new graphical user interface is user-friendly and intuitive," says Tolerans CEO Jan Melin.
