Printing more efficiently in sheetfed offset
Sheetfed offset presses and the entire sheetfed offset printing process are in a state of constant evolution. The presses become bigger, faster and more productive. The requirements in terms of the printed product become ever more diverse and challenging. “Value Added Printing” is the key concept. New formats and innovative effects lend a new face to the printed products. UV technology and the use of special effect inks give the printed image a previously unknown brilliance and vivacity. New substrates and coatings allow the development of completely new products. And - despite all innovation - the cost and productivity pressure on the printer is enormous. Because the high capital outlay for a printing press must be recouped in shorter and shorter periods: “Return on investment” is the crucial parameter.
