Tecnau Libra 800 named the best book on demand solution

Ivrea, Italy, May 21st, 2018 – Tecnau is proud to announce that the Libra 800 won a European Digital Press Association (EDP) Award 2018 in the category finishing/enhancement as the best book on demand post-press solution during Fespa Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin.

“Tecnau Libra 800 was the choice as it enables continuous production of single copy books without manual adjustments from roll to finished book at speeds up to 800 books/hour”, commented Stefano De Marco, Sales & Marketing Director at Tecnau.

The perfect binding system allows printers to produce short-run digitally printed books, catalogues and magazines. The highly modular and configurable solution supports on-the-fly changeover in book size at speed, ensuring full integrity control page by page and exact matching between book block and cover.

This reliable binding system has been an evolving and growing solution, widening the array of possible applications and driving efficiency and intelligence throughout the complete production workflow. The EDP Award 2018 received is a great honor as it recognizes the distinct advantages, technological innovation and application flexibility that the Tecnau Libra 800 book on demand solution offers to its users.

Now the contest 2018 is finished. The winners of the EDP Awards 2018 are determined. The 21 EDP member magazines all over Europe, covering 27 countries and reaching more than half a million readers in Europe (only on the printed magazines), congratulate the Award winners and finalists and thanks the participants and submitters for their cooperation.
