After the successful first event of the Postpress Alliance in November 2020, the organization of the next event is in the works. From June 8 to 11, 2021, the enterprises baumannperfecta, H+H, and MBO Postpress Solutions present new highlights from the world of cutting and folding.
Baumannperfecta: Fully automatic jogging and cutting system for commercial printing
After baumannperfecta presented during the Alliance Days 2020 the world's first fully automatic jogging and cutting system as upgrade for the industrial label production, now follows the upgrade for commercial printers. In label production, normally homogeneous grid raster shapes are processed, and sheets cut into strips for subsequent punching. With this new development, finished end products can be fully automatically cut, including interlaced multi-product sheets. Moreover, the robot now takes over the storage and removal of partial stacks and the transfer of the finished cuts to an unloader.
In combination with a vertical buffer for the partial stacks, here again, the core components of this modular system are the new BASA evolution and the integrated robot cutting system BASS.
H+H: New folding dimensions in the multi-pocket segment
H+H is unleashing a completely new folding dimension in the multi-plate sector in the shape of the M9. The implementation with up to 24 automated buckle plates and automated fold rollers allows the set-up time to be reduced from several hours to a few minutes; by up to 95% depending on the folding sequence and application type. This ensures that the machine pays for itself within the shortest possible time. The M9 revolutionizes your way of producing inserts, operating manuals, and product information. Besides the M9, H+H will moreover present the S45 small folding machine concept.
MBO: Autonomous production with signature change
The highlight of MBO is the autonomous production with signature change. If you want to know more, you must be patient a little longer. Today we may reveal only so much: MBO is introducing a completely new machine component that has not yet existed on the market and that represents a milestone on the way to fully automated postpress finishing. In addition to this highlight, MBO will show fast set-up with the K8, folding in small formats with the T50 and with the T800.1 a tried-and-tested buckle folding machine.
A mix of virtual show and live event
In June probably it will still be almost impossible to travel and visit local companies. The Postpress Alliance “Theme Days” are therefore taking place in the same format as the “Alliance Days” last November. This means that anyone interested can look around the virtual exhibition platform www.postpressalliance.com and discover the individual exhibits of the Alliance partners by themselves. In addition to that, there is also the possibility to reserve individual live demo appointments on the platform. During these demos, a real-time video transmission takes place in the showrooms of Baumann MaschinenbauSolms, H+H, and MBO. Experts from the Postpress Alliance will present the running machines to visitors in a very individual way. Questions can be asked at any time. Bookings for the live demos can be made on the www.postpressalliance.com platform from the middle of May.
About the Postpress Alliance
The Postpress Alliance is a union of Baumann MaschinenbauSolms, Bograma, H+H, Hohner Maschinenbau, MBO Postpress Solutions, Perfecta and Wohlenberg. The complementary machinery manufacturers in the finishing area have come together in a loose association to offer their customers an extensive and diverse range of post-press equipment. Concentrated know-how, together with a medium-sized, fast, and customer-oriented approach – that is what the Postpress Alliance stands for. The Alliance Days 2021, in which all six partner companies will take part, are planned for November this year.
