The need for practical, tangible economic benefits for the printer is the driving force behind the research and development efforts which have led to the new technology and products Böttcher will be highlighting at Drupa. For example, the “dream team” of ProColora and Golden Pearl uses special roller surface coatings to increase press up-time by speeding up cleaning and make-ready processes, leading to a direct and tangible increase in productivity and a reduction in material and labour cost.
The new technology offers potentially huge benefits to all printers contending with short runs and frequent colour changes, for example, in many packaging applications. Böttcher’s new “Vita” product range also targets this growing market, where and the pressure for more economical production methods and higher and higher technical standards is enormous.
Besides presenting new products and technology in 4 dedicated Competence Centres (sheetfed and web offset, flexography/rotogravure and digital printing, Böttcher’s BöttcherTex range of cleaning webs and VitaCoat varnishing plates and blankets will be highlighted at Drupa.
Last but not least, Drupa will see the launch of the brand new Böttcher webshop (boettchershop.com), offering printers enhanced, round-the-clock access to a wide range of Böttcher products.
