-100 days to drupa

04 Mar 2020

From June 16th to the 26th, Meccanotecnica Group will showcase its solutions for book finishing in Hall 16/B42

We are almost there! In about 100 days we will be exhibiting in drupa, the biggest trade fair for the graphic art industry.

The Meccanotecnica team is getting ready to showcase many improvements, the new generation of several machines together with a new concept proposal. The final aim is to better meet the requirements of our traditional customers and potential prospects.

The technical development of our solutions is following a path that is driven by three clear lines:

  • integration of processes;
  • increase automation;
  • better efficiency.

Integration of processes

The goal is to reduce the number of critical steps in the production process, avoiding the handling of the paper or of the semi-finished product. The result is a more efficient process and the reduction of production costs. In drupa, this effort will be clearly shown both by the solutions for offset and digital print finishing together with our solutions for print-on-demand book production.

Increase automation

It is no secret that printing runs are getting shorter and the number of job titles, that a binder must process in a day, is increasing. Automation is, therefore, in the top list of the challenges that book manufacturers must face.

In drupa, a specifically designed production workflow will demonstrate the capabilities of our solutions for POD book production. The new generations of Universe Web, Inline and Trimming will demonstrate how to reduce to a minimum the operation required for the set-up, saving precious time of the operator and simplify the use of the machines.

Better efficiency

The Full Cycle® Technology has increased the efficiency of the asterPRO book sewing machine, by allowing the sewing of books without the blind stitch. In drupa, this innovative sewing system will be presented as a “native” feature in a new “concept proposal” aimed to give a renewed impulse to the production of books in offset.

Discover our solutions in drupa

As in the past editions, you will find our solutions in Hall 16/B42. An area of more than 600 sqm will host almost the entire portfolio of our bookbinding and finishing machines. Moreover, this year, Universe Web, the automatic book sewing machine for digital printing will be also showcased in a partner area.

Stay tuned!
