technotrans to Highlight Three Themes at Drupa—Efficiency, Stability and Sustainability
SASSENBERG/GERMANY—February 2008—technotrans AG, one of the leading system suppliers for offset printing will be highlighting three main themes at the world’s largest exhibition for the printing industry: efficient processes, stable production and environmentally sound printing. One of the highlights of the technotrans’ stand at this year’s trade fair is the first ever presentation of the entire product range of blanket cleaning systems. In addition, the low-energy combination unit for dampening solution circulation and ink unit temperature control will be demonstrated.
Cloth and brush-based series of cleaning systems
With the contex product range, technotrans offers for the first time its comprehensive range of different cleaning systems for blanket and impression cylinders. In doing so, it is expanding its market position as a systems supplier considerably. The development of this completely new product range focused on increasing the productivity of the printing press, i.e. on extending the direct machine availability. In contrast to existing systems, each model in the range has unique selling points, which offer the user many advantages.
The self-developed contex.c for use in sheetfed offset printing offers greater cloth length, reduced washing time and less cloth consumption. Pilot customers running the new blanket washers have confirmed significantly longer replacement intervals and impressive ease of use.
For newspaper printing, technotrans has acquired the supplier rotoclean and has successfully continued to develop its solutions. With contex.mb, which cleans with a narrow, moveable brush, printing companies are using an economical and effective solution for a fully automatic cleaning process. In combination with the washing agent recycling system ecoclean.line, contex.mb offers an exceptional concept for clean and environmentally friendly production.
The product range for cleaning in newspaper and heatset printing is rounded off with yet another proprietary development. The contex.lb cleans the blanket with one continuous brush. This system features innovative dosing and flicker bar technology, a particularly low washing agent consumption and automated liquid transport. Here too, technotrans has developed a product which helps protect the environment and noticeably reduces operating costs.
