TIMSONS LAUNCHES DIGITAL T-PRESS AT DRUPA

1163

The company showcased its new T-Print inkjet book production line at the expo. The T-Print, which uses Kodak’s Stream heads, has been installed running inline into a Kolbus sequential feeder and KM200 perfect binder on the shared Timsons-Kolbus stand.

The industrial-scale press was shown printing and binding at full speed, producing three different royal-format books with a differing number of 64pp sections. The press runs at 200m/min at 600x900dpi, and it is expected to reach 300m/min by the first quarter of next year. The company said the press produced only a small amount of start-up waste as it can begin printing at low speed, before accelerating into full production.

The inline Kolbus perfect binder is changing covers and automatically adjusting for book thickness on-the-fly. Text pages are printed on Stora Enso’s Lux Cream Jet grade.

The system has been developed with a wide web width of 1,245mm or 1,320mm. It has an S-shaped paper path that doesn’t require turner bars for duplex printing.
