hubergroup presents a system solution for faster offset printing
How can we print even faster? This question plays an important role in pressrooms. Press speeds of up to 20,000 sheets per hour are now possible in packaging and commercial printing, but they often lead to a critical ink-water balance. At the same time, job volumes are getting smaller and smaller, so a stable production with fast control response is important. To meet these changing market requirements, hubergroup Print Solutions is now launching PERFECT-DRY-FIX, a fountain solution additive that is suitable for both conventional and UV offset printing. PERFECT-DRY-FIX enables smooth operation and high quality even at high printing speeds. In addition, the new fountain solution additive is optimally matched to the already established ECO-PERFECT-DRY ink series, which hubergroup has also developed specifically for fast printing.
