Products and solutions for litho and flexo printers to be featured
Bjert, Denmark - The TRESU Group will be featuring its “Intelligent Systems” concept with solutions for litho printers at PRINT 13, 8 -12 September 2013, McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois. Performance-building technologies from TRESU for flexo and gravure printers and converters will also be presented on the TRESU booth (1484).
Launched at drupa 2012, TRESU’s Intelligent Systems use innovative technology to increase operational efficiency and minimize down-time, contributing to competitiveness and bottom-line improvement. At the heart of the Intelligent Systems is the interconnectivity of the pressroom, TRESU and its service suppliers. A dedicated modem connects the system direct to a programmable logic controller PLC enabling sophisticated remote diagnostics and corrective action. Should the problem not be able to be remedied remotely, IDMS coordinates the supply of the correct parts and the despatch of a service technician – ensuring that necessary parts have been received before the technician’s visit.
Solutions for litho printers
The company will display the TRESU iDWC (dampening water circulator) at the booth, and promote its TRESU iChilling (press temperature control, process chilling and fountain dampening) systems and TRESU iDrying (hot air and IR drying) systems. Each system can integrate with TRESU’s IDMS (Internal Diagnostic Monitoring System) to provide advanced operational monitoring of critical components and integrated alarm functions.
For TRESU iDWC units, intelligent systems are a useful tool for large, central dampening water circulators that are dedicated to a single offset press, or multiple offset printing presses. TRESU iChilling intelligent systems are a uniquely integrated technology that bolsters operating efficiency of the equipment and selected optional add-on components, such as Fount-N-Kleer® AFS 3IC Advance Filtration System, where all critical functions of the devices are internally monitored by IDMS. For TRESU iDrying, the same technological application of IMDS can be applied to the full line of Infra-Red and Hot Air Drying Systems. TRESU’s three featured smart systems can be chosen individually or as a total ancillary press solution.
Also on display in the folding carton sector is the TRESU Offset Coating Concept, from TRESU Ancillary. This self-regulating coater comprises the TRESU UniPrint Combi chamber doctor blade E-Line and TRESU Coating Circulator and a TRESU Coating Conditioner. This versatile system enables sheet-fed and web offset printers to coat printed products at faster speeds without the risk of micr0-foaming and blisters in the coated surface.
TRESU Group’s three divisions, TRESU Solutions, TRESU Ancillary and TRESU Concept, will present solutions and information on the booth with representatives introducing the full portfolio to visitors.
For digital printers
Featured at the booth will be the recently launched TRESU Digital Sheet Coater, from TRESU Solutions, that integrates into sheet-fed digitally printed folding carton converting lines. The new flexo coating system can be configured for use with UV-curable coatings or for hot air drying of water-based coatings. Flexo sleeve technology delivers flood, pattern or spot coating in a single pass. The quick changeovers possible with the TRESU Digital Sheet Coater make it ideal to integrate into the short-run, on-demand environment of digital printing folding carton production.
TRESU Solutions offers custom product designs for flexo and gravure suppliers and converters requiring precise systems or components to integrate into their press or finishing lines. Drawing on TRESU’s engineering expertise and innovative approach, TRESU Solutions works with press and finishing suppliers as well as individual customers to devise and deliver the perfect product resolution.
And for flexo and gravure printers
TRESU offers a new generation of customised solutions for converters, based on an established platform and designed for today’s converting requirements. This results in cost-effective production while meeting the demands of today’s market.
As suppliers of flexo printing technology, TRESU helps companies see the broader picture and work with them to provide the equipment best suited for integrated production solutions that ensure speed, quality and versatility. For example, TRESU Concept offers The Flexo Innovator, an inline press that can comprise an unlimited number of print stations with dryers on each unit, ensuring colour quality without the issues that can arise if printing wet-on-wet as with some CI or stack presses.
“TRESU’s Intelligent Systems concept can benefit most litho, flexo, gravure and digital printers operating in the packaging market,” said Scott Hibbs, Executive Vice President, TRESU Royse, Inc. “TRESU’s engineering skills and innovative thinking about packaging solutions mean that we are able to offer tailored solutions for large and medium-sized businesses that help them differentiate themselves and improve their bottom lines.”
