Ricoh to present the transformative power of digital continuous feed technology at Spring Forward with Tecnau
German print and mailing specialist Sattler Media Group will explore the elevated production and application creativity delivered by its highly automated solution during the live event
Ricoh Europe, London, 5 May 2022 – The production capability and application versatility highly automated continuous feed technology delivers will be demonstrated by Ricoh and leading German print and mailing specialist Sattler Media Group at this year’s Spring Forward with Tecnau.
During Ricoh’s presentation on June 9, Arndt-Friedrich Wille, Business Development Manager at Sattler Media Group, will explain how the operation is levering digital technology to transition from analogue print. He will expand on Sattler’s move towards a more agile and responsive production environment that manages runs of various lengths on a wide range of substrates.
Wille will also detail how the benchmark combi-line driven by a Ricoh Pro™ VC70000 continuous feed inkjet press is delivering uninterrupted production flexibility. As a world premiere, the Ricoh Pro™ VC70000 will be connected to a Tecnau Zero Speed Splicer u40 comprising of two unwinders u9, an auto splicing tower and a buffer for "on-the fly" web splicing. For the very first time in Europe this Ricoh print line also includes the new ACE DM1000 DG contactless web cleaner and the Tecnau Revolution 50 series, Stack 5251L, roll to cut and stack line.
Enhanced automated print production is also supported by the Pro VC70000’s Ricoh Pro Scanner. It ensures added print quality verification with functions including jet-out detection and colour registration detection, while its smart start capability enables the press to prepare for the beginning of a shift to drive maximum productivity.
Sander Sondaal, Director, Commercial Print Sales, Graphic Communications Group, Ricoh Europe, will discuss how co-creation with Tecnau has resulted in integrated solutions that support commercial printers moving from offset to digital. He will highlight how lines like Sattler’s respond to market pressures to increase overall uptime, efficiently manage skilled staff, and make energy and consumable savings.
Sondaal says: “Sattler’s production line offers a versatile combination of roll to roll and roll to stack inline, plus roll to stack offline options. It allows for a greater number of workflow choices to meet Sattler’s varying daily demands. This adaptability, combined with a highly automated, technology rich, end to end solution, ensures maximum uptime which is vital for commercial printers who are under pressure to be as productive and as profitable as possible. It also enables the automated production of multiple small, customised jobs that deliver greater margins.”
The 60-minute live demonstration the 9th of June at 10am CET will conclude with a question and answer session moderated by Morten Reitoft from Inkish News. It will feature Wille, Sondaal, Stefano De Marco, Managing Director, Tecnau, and Robert Gubo, Sales Manager for Germany, Tecnau.
