Printing

2 KBA Rapida 164 7b, 120x160 cm, 5 colours
4 KBA Rapida 162a 7b, 120x160 cm, 5 and 4 colours
1 KBA Rapida 106-6 3b, 72x104 cm, 6 colours + varnishing unit

All presses are equipped with Densitronic S and LithoFlash® Inline.

LithoFlash® is a very compact dynamic colour measurement and regulation system, that drastically reduce printing waste and setup time. Up to 20 individual cameras capture the entire colour scale with every revolution; thanks to flash operation, the system uses very little energy and the lighting has a long maintenance-free service life. Thanks to dynamic control, savings with this system are enormous; the colour densities are usually correct after just 120 printed sheets.
The two new KBA Rapida 164 and Rapida 106 stand out for their superior efficiency, thanks to the maximum speed of 15.000 sheets/hour and the Drivetronic automatic plate change and register control system, which makes them high performance presses.

Digital printing

Printer Trento opened a digital printing center in 2014.

We installed a Kodak Nexpress toner digital press, which allows us to obtain results that are comparable in quality to those of a traditional offset press. Furthermore, to produce in line book-blocks ready to be then bound in paperback or hardback style using our traditional production lines, we installed a Meccanotecnica Universe Sewing machine with the future aim of installing an automatic finishing line and thus making our new digital department completely autonomous.

With the installment of these advanced equipments we aim to offer a mean of producing books with a very low print run, from a single copy up to two-hundred, while maintaining the quality of the finished product at the same level of our traditional production.
