Tecnau's Libra One

Italian web-fed print finishing company Tecnau will showcase its new Libra One book-block finishing system at this year’s drupa.

Libra One is a fully integrated and automated system, allowing variability from one book to the next in height, width, thickness and imposition. With Libra One’s ability to produce ‘books-of-one’, users can dramatically reduce paper waste and the risk of unsold inventory.

Tecnau (Hall 8a, stand D63) will also exhibit a range of new and existing products on the stands of a number of digital printing and finishing partners, including Ricoh, Screen, Canon, Xerox, HP, Horizon, Fujifilm and Böwe Systec:

•          Ricoh – Tecnau unveils its new Roll 9 system in twin showings around drupa. At the Ricoh stand (Hall 8a, stand B46), Roll 9’s Unwinder u9 feeds roll paper to the Ricoh Pro VC60000 continuous feed inkjet printer, with the Rewinder r9 forming rolls on the back end.

•          Screen – Roll 9 is also shown on the Screen stand (Hall 8a, stand C11), providing feeding and finishing for the Screen Truepress Jet520 HD.

•          Canon – Completing the exhibition of Libra One on Tecnau’s own stand, Tecnau’s Zero Speed Splicer u40 provides roll feeding for Canon’s new high-speed digital printing system, Ocè ColorStream 6000, in the neighboring Canon stand (Hall 8A, stand B50-7); the printer in turn supplies printed output in-line to Libra One.

•          Xerox – Tecnau will exhibit its high-speed Roll 20 roll-to-roll solution along with the Stack 2020 cut/stack system in the Xerox stand (Hall 8B, stand A62) on the just-announced Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press.  Supporting speeds up to 254 meters per minute, the Unwinder u20 features a new airshaft design for smooth feeding of a paper roll up to 22.5” wide and 52” in diameter into the digital press.

•          HP – At HP’s stand in Hall 17, Tecnau will show its CutReady cut/stack solution finishing output behind the HP Indigo w6800.  CutReady supports a broad array of applications, media types, and paper weights – completing one up, two up, and three up output in standard photo sizes including 4×6, 5×7, 6×8, 10×8, and 12×18 inches.

•          Horizon – Tecnau displays the Stack 2020 cut/stack system inline to the Horizon book finishing solution, including the BQ-470 binder and HT-1000 Three knife trimmer, in a pair of partner locations at drupa.  In the Horizon stand (Hall 6, stand D05), Stack 2020 is configured with an Unwinder 550, Cutter c20, Stacker s20 and Transport Table 568 to support a dual output delivery: the Stacker s20 can be bypassed to send single sheets to the Horizon system or alternatively can be used to cut and stack book blocks, with 90 degree delivery and offline finishing. The Roll to finish line is suitable for medium to short run production.

•          FujiFilm – On the FujiFilm stand (Hall 8B, stand A25), Tecnau’s Stack 2020 again delivers sheets to the Horizon book finishing solution, this time in a nearline configuration to FujiFilm’s Jet Press 540w.

•          Böwe Systec – Tecnau presents in Hall 6, stand B39 the Unwinder u10 inline to Böwe Systec Fusion Cross, high speed inserting system, supporting a broad variety of envelop formats and media variation, for the transaction and direct mail markets.

“We’ve placed a number of new product offerings in partner stands at drupa, so we encourage our customers and prospects to visit partners as well as Tecnau’s own stand to see the latest in the world of feeding and finishing innovations for digital print,” said Giuliano De Marco, CEO of Tecnau.
