technotrans unveils enhanced portfolio at drupa

The company will show cooling and fluid products that reduce CO2 footprint in print production.

technotrans will present innovative cooling and fluid technologies for offset, digital, and flexographic printing at drupa 2024 with the guiding principle of ‘Empowering the future of print!’ in Düsseldorf from May 28 to June 7 in Hall 1, stand B10.

The company will show the new equipment generations featuring the natural and environmentally friendly refrigerant R290. In addition, technotrans provides insights at its stand into how customer proximity and service quality can be significantly increased through digitalization.

Peter Böcker, deputy sales manager at technotrans, said: ‘With our technology, we offer our customers process-reliable solutions that will significantly reduce the CO2 footprint in their print production and will also meet all guidelines and standards in the future. And we make no compromises: technotrans products are high-tech systems that achieve high performance and optimal energy efficiency through precise application-specific design – naturally, of the highest quality and with global service.’

At the technotrans stand, visitors can expect several exhibits in the area of liquid technology. technotrans is presenting for the first time the alpha.c combination unit for dampening solution preparation and ink unit temperature control with the natural refrigerant R290. Also on display will be the beta.c eco combination unit with high-precision measurement, control, and dosing technology, along with effective water inlet control.

In addition, technotrans will show a resource-saving dampening solution purification system that requires no consumables. In the offset sector, the conventional and UV ink supply is a particular focus of the exhibition, with precise measurement and dosing.

In thermal management, technotrans concentrates on its new ECOtec.chiller xtend with natural refrigerant R290. The modular system is particularly suited to digital printing requirements: thanks to numerous equipment options, the chiller can be precisely tailored to individual needs. The xtend.line also provides a high level of energy efficiency, power density, and economic efficiency. The refrigerant usage is up to 60 percent lower than that of conventional solutions, according to the company.

For packaging printing applications, technotrans will present integrated cooling systems for UV drying units. technotrans also develops customized cooling solutions adapted to the UV sector. Central to this is a holistic approach to sustainability: through smart networking of cooling and drying systems in energy-efficient overall systems, the thermal management specialist will demonstrate practical ways to make printing processes environmentally friendly.

This focus on sustainability is also reflected in the compact design of all technotrans products. At drupa, the cabinet concept first introduced by technotrans celebrates its 35th anniversary. The concept saves space, is particularly service-friendly, and can optimally realize different individual functions within it. As a result, a complete system designed in the cabinet concept reduces packaging material and simplifies logistics, technotrans reported.

technotrans is also making its after-sales service more sustainable. For decades the solution provider has been a reliable partner of the printing industry and offers customers a comprehensive package including extensive maintenance and service functions. The company consistently relies on digitalization to increase speed and efficiency while minimizing the CO2 footprint. This includes, among other things, the expansion of remote service and the use of augmented reality.

‘We work very closely with our clients and understand the industry's requirements. This knowledge is the most important basis for the further development of our products and the needs-based service,’ emphasized Böcker. ‘That is why we look forward to the dialog during drupa and to new impulses for the further development of the printing industry of the future – in line with our motto: Empowering the future of print.’
