technotrans Supplies Ink Roller Technology for manroland
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.
CO2 emissions drastically reduced. Voluntarily today – compulsory tomorrow?
The enhanced/improved combination unit beta.c eco offers a unique combination of free cooling, power-controlled components, high-quality filtration and precise dosing technology for sheetfed offset applications. It is a highly economical and ecological system for dampening solution circulation and ink unit temperature control. With beta.c eco, the main focus of attention is on the economic aspects, which make lower operating costs possible in the medium and long-term operation. One of the main goals is a noticeable reduction of the energy demand and thus the emission of environmentally harmful CO2.
Cooling of ink units for up to 80 % of annual operation can be carried out directly via the free cooler, meaning that the refrigeration unit requires correspondingly less energy. The dampening solution service life is significantly increased by the standard use of the two-stage fine filtration system beta.f. This reduces the amount of fresh dampening solution required cutting the level of additives and IPA. Higher filter service life, lower consumables consumption and easier disposal all contribute toward cost reduction. According to technotrans, the combination of all these effects contribute to a halving of the operating costs using the beta.c eco.
