PRINT PRODUCTION „ON THE FLY“ – the keyword for the future

A postpress system of highest efficiency and flexibility, this was the requirement Gämmerler had to fulfill. No question Gämmerler rose to the challenge by developing and implementing a future-oriented installation at the customer’s printing plant. The possibility for a continuous change from one pre-set printing job to the next one without stopping the press and losing precious time – “On the Fly” at full press speed – is just one of the key features to achieve the required goal. The link to the Gämmerler G-CONNECT Logistic System allows the components of the postpress line – overhead conveying system FS260, compensating stacker KL565, as well as palletizing robot PR460 with double gripper and slipsheet feeder – to be in permanent data-exchange with the MIS-System, in order to ensure an uninterrupted transparency of the production-process. Reliable tracking facilitates tracing of each individual printed product in the overhead conveying system, as well as of the created bundle in the downstream line, and therefore ensures a precise net count, reducing the risk of an over- or underdelivery. The logistic control of the compensating stackers, bundle lines and robots, that means the allocation of the bundles resp. pallets in accordance with the destination/postcodes, enables the individual processing of the bundles within a production and therefore meets the consequent demand for small, target group oriented circulations. Once again Gämmerler has faced the current challenges of the market and successfully realized a postpress line which due to its efficiency corresponds to the customer’s [...]

„New“ among the Gämmerler compensating stackers

Based on Siemens’  latest developments in control and automation technology, Gämmerler has expanded its range of compensating stackers with the models  KL/545-S and KL/565-S. The Siemens control system S7-1500 and the latest components of drive technology are further enhancing the machine, operating with the proven Gämmerler LiftPack-technology. Additionally a  TP-1200 PRO operating panel with new visualization and control logic serves as HMI-Interface, significantly increasing operator settings and information. In addition to the benefits for operator settings and information, the further options of data processing and sharing for G-Connect applications are a big advantage. Combined with the further advanced Gämmerler  G-Connect-Software it is possible to interchange all relevant machine data for up and downstream processing, such as the number of copies per bundle, the number of layers, product tracking, bundle tracking, job-memory, G-Adjust, G-Tour, G-Optimize and G-Health. Thus the KL/545-S and KL/565-S are fully prepared for future tasks in the logistics sector. Equipped with the PROFINET interface the machines meet today’s industry standards. This compensating stacker significantly underlines Gämmerler’s philosophy of a continuous adaption  to the permanently changing market conditions, to achieve optimization of efficiency and productivity of machines and installations for the customer, through automation and flexibility.

Burda Druck: Print is strong – but with Gämmerler Postpress it is even stronger!

In times of Covid-19 anticyclical investments have become a saying. But above all the decision for an investment is, that you have to believe in the printed product. Burda Druck, one of the most important players in the field of commercial and magazine printing in Europe, believes in “Print” and has invested in the future of his company sites in France, Offenburg and Nuremberg this year, strongly focusing on availability, flexibility and automation of the postpress systems. The decision to install Gämmerler systems has been based on previous experiences of postpress installations with Gämmerler." Our partnership has admittedly been tested in every way but has succeeded because of a mutual respect in discussions and to ultimately leave no stone unturned to meet the partners expectations", says Erich Wirthwein (Managing Director of Gämmerler). The decision of Burda Druck to install at the three locations the new Gämmerler compensating stackers KL/545-S combined with the blocking module VM/500 and to replace existing compensating stackers, proves we can meet and deliver expectations. Furthermore investments into a complete double-stream postpress line including robotic palletizing have been made to expand the capacities for finished products at the company site in Nuremberg. The circulations and paginations of finished products for the so-called retail market remain nearly unchanged, which is an ideal condition for rotogravure printing. The Gämmerler system comprises the overhead conveying system FS/260 directing the printed products to the log stacker, floor conveying systems, two double stream trimmers RS/234 and two fully [...]

Successful start-up of the postpress line for the second 80-page Lithoman at Franklin Web’s ‚Supersite‘ in Huntingwood/Australia.

Not long ago Gämmerler commissioned the complex postpress system installed on the second 80-page Lithoman of Franklin Web, specialized in retail business and member of the listed IVE Group. The new line mirrors the system installed byGämmerler on the first Lithoman in 2017. Amongst others the customer benefits from a simplified operation since the two postpress lines that are nearly identical. Conveyors, trimmers type RS164 with double-knife technology, compensating stackers KL560 and two palletizing robots PR460, those are the main components of this high performance postpress line. Our competence and the reliability of the fully automated flexible postpress systems have been for many years the decision criteria to invest in technical solutions from Gämmerler, as trusted partner of Franklin Web / IVE Group.
