Increase the value of transactional documents with coupons and convenience checks

Dynamic perforations are added with TC 1550 PLUS in-line with roll to roll or roll to cut & stack solutions. Printer stoppages can be avoided and different types of paper can be used by switching rolls with the Zero Speed Splicer u40 solution. Applications can be inspected for integrity and quality control with the highly configurable WebVision.



Roll to Roll – Extended Run Time Productivity

The Roll solutions each include an unwinder and rewinder to produce high-quality, tightly wound rolls ready for inserting or near-line finishing.  The newest innovations available on Tecnau Roll to Roll systems include a new air-shaft design for smooth high-speed feeding of the roll into the digital press, an easy-to-use touch screen control panel, automatic detection of roll feed direction, and semiautomatic roll loading.

Roll To Cut & Stack

Get unprecedented reliability and high performance cutting and stacking for your continuous high-speed color digital printer. Tecnau’s Stack solutions deliver 1-up, 2-up or 3-up offset stacks with variable full bleed cuts at speeds up to 180 m/min (600 ft/min).

These latest-generation systems incorporate Smooth-Web™ motion technology, synchronizing modules for gentle, reliable handling of even very lightweight papers.

The Cutter c23 has dual rotary knives to sheet the web, single cutting or variable double cutting for full-bleed printing. Stacker s20 offers reliable, cost-effective handling of most applications, while the shingling Stacker s30 offers higher-speed operation and superior lightweight paper handling.

Zero Speed Splicer u40  –  Keep your printer running

Printer stoppages due to roll changeover can last up to fifteen minutes. With today’s fast printers running through a roll as quickly as one hour, percentage downtime due to roll changes can approach 25%. With the Zero Speed Splicer u40, this percentage drops to zero. Significantly, the Splicer u40 also virtually eliminates the lengthy paper waste associated with printer stoppages due to roll depletion.

Zero Speed Splicer u40 offers a high degree of flexibility to your operation, accommodating a broad variation in paper weights in successive rolls, and even accommodating variation in successive roll widths. The web may be justified to the left, right or center, allowing the Splicer u40 to work with varying digital production printers. The Zero Speed Splicer u40 includes two roll unwinders, two 90° web guides to assure precision at the splicing edge, a central splicing unit and a buffer.

With automatic compression of splices and an interface with compatible printers to raise the print heads while the splice passes by, the Splicer u40 protects the print heads from damage.

Roll To Roll – with Dynamic Perforator TC 1550 HS

The TC 1550 HS processor creates on-demand horizontal and vertical perforations, and offers options for static pinfeed punching or dynamic file hole punching, yielding user-friendly documents for your customer and application flexibility for you.

The HS series features an optional Performance Package upgrade with two perforation blades per shaft (field-upgradable), nearly cutting in half the minimum horizontal perforation repeat available at a given speed. A 2D Datamatrix, barcode or OMR code on each page triggers one of up to 89 pre-programmed perforation patterns page-by-page within your job.

Choose from dynamic perforation models with two, four or six horizontal and vertical perforation devices to best match your needs. The TC 1550 HS features automatic page length detection and automatic synchronization after blank paper. Optional tensioner or detensioner modules to match your printer operation are available on-board for reduced footprint. Expandable models are also available with free space for future in-field upgrades.
