Pioneering Sustainability: technotrans unveils enhanced portfolio at drupa

  • Focus on energy-efficient cooling and liquid technology
  • Advanced systems meeting the demands of the future
  • Full service for the printing industry with sustainable and digital support worldwide

"Empowering the future of print!”: with this guiding principle, technotrans is presenting innovative cooling and fluid technologies for offset, digital, and flexographic printing at this year's drupa. Their exhibition presence is all about sustainable and economical solutions that are setting new industry standards in terms of energy efficiency and resource conservation. Evidence of this includes the new future-proof equipment generations featuring the natural and environmentally friendly refrigerant R290, which the company is showcasing in Düsseldorf. In addition, technotrans provides insights at their stand into how customer proximity and service quality can be significantly increased through digitalisation. 

"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," says Peter Böcker, Deputy Sales Manager at technotrans. "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 is the established beta.c eco combination unit with high-precision measurement, control, and dosing technology, along with effective water inlet control. In addition, technotrans is showing 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. 

State-of-the-art thermal management for printing processes

In thermal management, technotrans concentrates on their 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. But the xtend.line offers not just flexibility; it 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.

For packaging printing applications, technotrans presents integrated cooling systems for UV drying units. technotrans also develops customised cooling solutions perfectly 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 demonstrates practical ways to make printing processes environmentally friendly. 

A groundbreaking cabinet concept turns 35

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 realise different individual functions within it. As a result, a complete system designed in the cabinet concept reduces packaging material and simplifies logistics. 

Faster, more digital, more sustainable: technotrans expands service capabilities

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 digitalisation to increase speed and efficiency while minimising 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," emphasises Böcker. "That is why we look forward to the dialogue 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." 

technotrans will be exhibiting at drupa 2024 in Düsseldorf from 28 May to 7 June in Hall 1, Stand B10.
