SUMMARYIn-plants may have top-of-the-line equipment, facilities, funding, and staff, but if they don’t have a strategic plan to guide them toward their goals, they will never achieve greatness. In this session, Consultant Greg Cholmondeley will go over the steps in-plants should be taking to create a five-year strategic plan and highlight the 10 key elements to include.
Tecnau is a leader in feeding and finishing systems for high-speed inkjet presses, both continuous web-fed and sheet-fed. Northern-Italy-based Tecnau also has offices in the Boston area, as well as Sweden, and has a worldwide customer base. Founded more than 30 years ago, the company offers a broad portfolio of solutions for an array of applications, giving in-plant printers the ability to produce books, booklets and manuals; brochures and calendars; postcards, letters and statements. After a brief overview of the established product line, Scott Peterson, product marketing manager at Tecnau, will introduce us all to their newest finishing systems. The Revolution 50 series offers cut and stack finishing for the newest generation of high-speed continuous inkjet presses, with capability of running at speeds up to 750 feet per minute, and compatibility with coated papers. The just-announced Stack 1212 also cuts and stacks heavy ink-coverage applications across a wide gamut of papers, but this time the focus is on sheet-fed input, or more specifically, B2/B2+ sheets. Finally, Tecnau will also give us a bit of a peak at their Splicer Roll 40 system, which gives continuous inkjet press users dual unwinders and dual rewinders to keep their press up and running.

Transitioning from offset and toner technologies to production inkjet is a big move for an in-plant, yet so far dozens of in-plants have done it. This session brings together three in-plants that use production inkjet presses to discuss the challenges they faced when replacing multiple devices with an inkjet press, the types of work they are successfully printing with inkjet, quality considerations, volume requirements, and much more. In-plants looking into inkjet should not miss this session.
