Tecnau and LasermaxRoll to Present New Brand for Print Finishing Solutions

IVREA, ITALY/ LJUNGBY, SWEDEN—April 27, 2012—At drupa 2012, Tecnau and LasermaxRoll will introduce a new name and brand: TecnauGroup. Following the acquisition last year of LasermaxRoll by Tecnau, the TecnauGroup now represents products from both Tecnau (Italy) and LasermaxRoll (Sweden and USA). The TecnauGroup will demonstrate numerous new products and technologies at drupa 2012 and its systems will be found in its own stand as well as the stands of multiple industry partners.

The TecnauGroup stand (Hall 6 / C74) will showcase new systems for perforating and punching, print image inspection, fan folding, sheeting/stacking, and book making. First, the new TC1750 Continuous Punching and Fanfold Perforator has been developed to make tractor holes and programmable static fanfold perforations, working in line with Digital Printers. The TC1750 eliminates the need for pre-processed paper and when in line with a digital press, it can be positioned before or after printing for maximum flexibility and compliance with specific printer requirements.

Next, the new Perfoflex TC 1550 FL2P has been developed to work with slack paper webs, in line with high speed digital printing systems and finishing equipment. The Perfoflex FL2P offers maximum flexibility for dynamic horizontal and vertical perforations and now also performs dynamic file hole punching.

The TC 1750 and TC 1550 FL2P will operate together in line with the WebVision print image inspection system and a new version of the Folder f5 fanfold stack system. The entire line will process rolls pre printed by DJM (Hall 8b / A76) using their new inkjet printer and the LasermaxRoll Unwind 550 and Rewind 555. The high speed Folder f5 is now even faster, supporting ultra-high speed inkjet presses. The Folder f5 features completely automated web feeding and form size changes to create high capacity compressed vertical stacks of fan folded output.

Also on display, the new Ultra Fast Dynamic Perforator Perfoflex TC 8300 has been developed to work in line with the newest and fastest Digital Printers, to process webs printed in 3-up mode up to 240m/min. The Perfoflex TC8300 is developed for wide 30.5″ web presses and performs dynamic horizontal and vertical perforations. A key feature of the TC 8300 is its motorized knives enabling programmable vertical perforation positioning.
