In an increasingly digitalized world, the printing industry depends more and more on economic process optimization. Although many customers prefer to hold an actual newspaper or book in their hands, the final price must not significantly exceed the price of a digital medium. Appropriate surface technology can considerably increase the economic efficiency in the printing industry, and thus ensure your company's continuing competitiveness.
Paper processing at high speeds generates forces which might even affect machine components made of steel. The dust generated by the paper leaves soiling on the machine components - the set web tension gets lost.
Dried bookbinding adhesive residues and inks remain stuck to the containers and rollers. The result: considerable cleaning efforts and machine downtime.In the long run, the removal of particularly stubborn residues can result in damages.
In order to avoid ink traces, maintain the web tension without damaging the material and ensure resistance to dust, it is required to provide material surfaces which are capable of fulfilling different requirements at the same time.
The surface technology Aalberts surface treatment's customers from the printing industry benefit from is characterized by high resistance to wear and excellent non-stick properties. In this case, customized surface treatment processes and coating systems with special reinforcing materials are the key to success.
We use high-quality polymer and fluoropolymer finishes in conjunction with functional intermediate layers for our highly effective and partially patented surface finishes.
