Tecnau Announces First Roll-Fed System for Cut-Sheet Inkjet
BILLERCIA, Ma. - August 22, 2018 - Tecnau announced the availability of the Tecnau SheetFeeder BV roll-feed system for up to 10 hours of nonstop cut-sheet paper feeding to the Xerox BrenvaHD production inkjet press. Brenva is the first sheetfed inkjet printer to offer a roll feed option.
Based upon the established Tecnau SheetFeeder family, the SheetFeeder BV sits next to the input side of the press and includes a quick-change unwinder and precision cutter. By feeding as many as 50,000 or more sheets from a single 50˝ diameter roll, users print more in less time while lowering paper and labor costs.
SheetFeeder BV creates Brenva’s entire document size range up to a large 14.33x20.5˝ sheet for the press’s basis weight range of 60 to 220 gsm, all while running at full press speed. Users may switch between 8.5x11˝ and 11x17˝ applications without changing rolls. Paper savings are especially significant on odd-sized sheets, lightweight and other non-standard papers. An optional running perforator offers additional savings.
“At Xerox, we strive to make working with our products and services easier and more productive for our customers,” said Steve Welkley, vice president, Production Inkjet Sales, Xerox. “The Tecnau SheetFeeder BV roll feed system for our Brenva HD press allows our customers the flexibility to cut applications to their desired paper size within Brenva’s range without having to load and re-load various paper sizes. This solution ultimately increases throughout and lowers press downtime, operator labor and paper cost.”
