Tecnau and LasermaxRoll to Present New Brand for Print Finishing SolutionsApril 27, 2012
For the first time at Drupa, the LasermaxRoll Stack 2220 system includes the Cutter c22 and Stacker s20 and features dual rotary knives for variable strip cutting in line at speeds up to 140 m/min. The double strip cut is used to remove cleaning lines produced by many inkjet printers or to create documents with bleed edges. The system can operate both in line with digital printers or offline. For this offline demonstration, two print partners will provide printed rolls—HP will print rolls on the T400 Inkjet Web Press and Kodak will print rolls on its PROSPER S20.
Finally, the TecnauGroup stand will also demonstrate the Tecnau BMS 400 Book Making System. The BMS 400 is a fully automated book assembling system ideal for: cheque books, restaurant tickets, travel booklets, prescription books, and more. The BMS 400 has many options available to customize according to customer needs.
In the Ricoh stand (Hall 8a / B46), TecnauGroup will present its new ultra high-speed Roll-to-Roll system comprised of the new LasermaxRoll Unwind u20 and Rewind r20. The system will be installed in line with the InfoPrint 5000 VP operating at 220 m/min. The u20 and r20 utilize automated paper control and lightweight gearless airshafts for ease of loading and unloading rolls. In addition, the new speed-upgraded version of LasermaxRoll’s WebVision system will be in line with the InfoPrint 5000 VP. WebVision is installed directly after the digital printer to identify problems right away. WebVision is fully automated and analyzes print image quality, data integrity, and guarantees job completeness. It also connects directly to ADF systems for even greater end-to-end automation.
In the Canon stand (Hall 8a / C06) the Oce ColorStream 3500 color inkjet printer will have a Tecnau Perfoflex TC 1550 FL2 Dynamic Perforator and the LasermaxRoll Sheeter 568 system installed in line. In addition, a new product integration and partnership between LasermaxRoll and Horizon will demonstrate sheet feeding directly to the Horizon StitchLiner to create completed booklets in line with the Oce printer.
In the HP stand (Hall 4 / D60) for the first time at Drupa, two LasermaxRoll PageReady™ systems with FinishReady Controller will be shown in line on two HP Indigo 7600 Digital Presses. PageReady fully automates the process of cutting, trimming, collating, and stacking, to convert multiple image press sheets into smaller professionally finished pages without the demand for guillotine cutters. FinishReady Controller is a central interface to facilitate the automatic set-up, control and monitoring of in line or near line finishing devices in close harmony with the HP Indigo Digital Press. PageReady and FinishReady were released for sale in late March and the first customer deliveries will take place in late May after Drupa.
In the GMP stand (Hall 4 / C23) the new Tecnau PhotoReady solution will operate offline to cut pre printed and laminated rolls into photos in popular sizes ranging from 4 x 5 inch up to 12 x 18 inch. The system creates fully trimmed photos separated into groups and automatically diverts excess white paper. The photos will be printed on the HP Indigo WS6000p and GMP will laminate the web before it is transferred to PhotoReady for finishing.
In the IMPIKA stand (Hall 5 / C24) a new Tecnau Compact Pinless Cutter TC 7500 I will be integrated into the new Impika printer, which will be presented for the first time at Drupa. The Tecnau cutter has been redesigned to provide a very compact, small size cutter that can guarantee high performance and reliability to support the printing process.
In the CMC stand (Hall 14 / A04) a new Tecnau Super-Fast Pinless Cutter TC 7800 will run up to 200 m/min in line with the LasermaxRoll Unwind u10 and CMC 9000 inserting machine.

In the MB Bäuerle stand (Hall 13 / D49) a Tecnau Turbo cutter TC 1013 T will operate in line with the new MB multi format inserting machine autoSET B4 HighFLEX.
