Roll-to-Sheet Production Webinar

Cooperation between the World Printers Forum and OPHAL

This webinar is for publication printers using sheetfed or commercial web offset, label and foil converters. While not new, Roll-to-Sheet feeders are not always a well-known option to improve production efficiency and lower costs, while providing opportunities for product diversification. Some web printers have invested in sheetfed perfectors using rolls for shorter run publications and special products; while some sheetfed printers are using them to optimise their publication printing costs and/or diversify to other applications.

Feeding sheetfed presses from rolls is a hybrid technology that is particularly appropriate for presses using relatively large quantities of a limited range of paper weights and grades. This technology provides uninterrupted printing at higher speeds, particularly on lightweight papers down to 35 gsm, and to process substrates like foils and plastic film that are available only on rolls.

The speakers are: Daniel Siegler, UPM Manager Technical Customer Service and Markus Hoefer, Senior Manager Segment Management Label from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen.

WHEN: November 23, 2023, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm CET
