manroland web systems offers a flexible portfolio of solutions.
manroland web systems has successfully expanded its applied expertise in the digital print market. Using its own know-how, the company has developed digital print finishing modules such as the pin folder FoldLine und the FormerLine.
Individual print volumes for books are steadily decreasing, which causes considerable pressure to cut costs for web offset book production systems and sheetfed presses used in book printing. For short runs, digital printing can easily hold its own in terms of costs – and even generate significant savings potentials.
Flexible digital print finishing modules
Paired with the finishing components FoldLine and FormerLine from manroland web systems, a modern digital printing system can produce complete book blocks in an end-to-end process. Even auxiliary gluing can be integrated as required. This leads to a substantial reduction in costs involved in conventional book production. Overall systems with flexible solutions such as offline/nearline or complete inline concepts can also be offered and integrated.
With short and very short runs, digital printing enables production “on demand”, which eliminates costs for logistics, warehousing, and overproduction.
Digital printing is thus a flexible and extremely fast method of book production, which manages to unite books and readers more quickly. “Ready for dispatch in two days!” Digital printing makes good on this promise.
Digitally printed books provide all the basic requirements to successfully compete with conventional book production and digital book editions.
