Conprinta goes even bigger

Conprinta has now added a 2.8m pre-print machine to its product range. “The requirements of the corrugated industry for a 2.8m wide printing system has led us to this development,” explains Alexander Cartellieri.

The first 2.8m machine is due to installed a customer site in the summer of 2017. The press features Conprinta’s patented Belt Technology, meaning the use of sleeves or cylinders is not necessary. “By using light-weight belts, set-up is significantly easier compared to conventional printing systems, so that even shorter orders can be produced economically,” continues Mr Cartellieri.

“This flexibility of handling many short orders has enabled a new generation of preprint systems, known as ‘Hybrid’ systems. Our print and varnishing units are ordered in-line with digital web-fed printing systems to enable the optimum in quality, cost and delivery flexibility by combining digital inkjet and analogue flexo. Customers can react to the trend towards smaller batch sizes, customisation, faster response times and simpler order processing,” concludes Mr Cartellieri.
