Investing in Contiweb · Steven Renders ·...

DE Edition Roularta Media Group is a Belgium-based publishing group publishing magazines and news, delivering digitally, making TV, and supporting local and international brands. Roularta is also involved in the printing industry as the group publishes Grafisch Nieuws - but it's also a huge printing company with dedicated objectives of achieving considerable CO2 reductions. As CEO Steven Renders explains, CO2 reductions get harder and harder as the company obviously looks for the easiest targets first. One of these targets was the dryers on Roularta's web-offset presses - they realized that new Contiweb gas dryers could not only use less energy but also considerably reduce the CO2 emissions - so with that, Roularta exchanged all the heaters on their presses, and now the happy owners of three new Contiweb gas-dryers. Roularta is a very automated printing company with clear strategies that enable it to grow, reduce its carbon footprint, and develop more print business through its unique business models. This is a VERY good film to learn from we believe!

Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106X · Primus...

German language/multiple languages subtitles: Im Rahmen unserer ALWAYS on DACH Tour hatten wir die Gelegenheit, den CEO Ralf Rehmet von Primus zu treffen. Primus ist eine Online-Druckerei und Zulieferer für andere Druckunternehmen sowie andere Online-Druckereien. Als Online-Druckerei ist ein schneller Produktionsablauf, gleichbleibende Qualität und die Fähigkeit, viele Produktarten herzustellen, erforderlich. Primus liefert alle gebundenen Produkte, von Wire'O und Klammerheftung bis zu perfekt gebundenen Erzeugnissen. Neben dem Druck, der auf den Heidelberger und Koenig & Bauer Druckmaschinen des Unternehmens erfolgt, verfügt Primus auch über digitale Konica Minolta Drucker und einige Formulardrucker - die, da immer weniger Formulare produziert werden, den ganzen Tag beschäftigt sind. Eine der jüngsten Investitionen ist die Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106X, die viel Automatisierung in die Produktion bringt und eine Maschine ist, mit der sowohl Bediener als auch Besitzer sehr zufrieden sind. Es ist interessant zu sehen, wie Koenig & Bauer eine ältere man roland Bogenoffsetmaschine ersetzt hat und wie die Arbeitslast zwischen Heidelberg und Koenig & Bauer verteilt ist. Aber hören Sie hier Ralf Rehmet zu und genießen Sie es. As part of our ALWAYS on DACH Tour, we got the chance to meet CEO Ralf Rehmet from Primus. Primus is an online printer and supplier of print to other printing companies and other online printing companies, and being an online printer requires fast turnaround, consistent quality, and the ability to produce many types of products. Primus delivers all bound products, from Wire'O and saddle stitching to perfect bound products. Besides the print being printed on the company's Heidelberg and Koenig & Bauer presses, Primus also has digital Konica Minolta and then a couple of form printers - that, because fewer and fewer produce forms are busy all day long. One of the most recent investments is the Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106X, which brings a lot of automation to the production and is a machine both operators and owners are very pleased with. Interesting to see how Koenig & Bauer replaced an older man roland sheetfed machine and how the job load between the Heidelberg and Koenig & Bauer is. But listen to Ralf Rehmet here and enjoy.

Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 · Drucker...

German language/Multiple subtitles: Das familiengeführte Unternehmen Rosebrock ist etwa 30 Minuten von Bremen entfernt, und wir haben es im Rahmen unserer ALWAYS ON DACH TOUR besucht. Rosebrock ist eine Druckerei, die sich auf den Etikettendruck spezialisiert hat. Im Film erklärt Lars Rosebrock, warum sie von einem 5-Farben- zu einem 6-Farben-Druck gewechselt haben und wie die höheren Energiepreise die Entscheidung beeinflusst haben. Bei unserem Besuch wurde die Rapida 106 von einer jungen Frau bedient, und das erfüllt zwei Anforderungen, die wir mögen - 'Jung' und 'Frauen' - eine tolle Kombination und gut für die Zukunft. English: The family-run company Rosebrock is about 30 minutes from Bremen, and we visited it as part of our ALWAYS ON DACH TOUR. Rosebrock is a printing company that specializes in label printing. In the film, Lars Rosebrock explains why they switched from a 5-color to a 6-color printing press and how the higher energy prices have influenced the decision. During our visit, the Rapida 106 was operated by a young woman, and this fulfills two requirements that we like - 'Young' and 'Women' - a great combination and good for the future.

German language / Multiple subtitles subtitles (including German and English).

Dies ist die zweite Station unserer Always On DACH Tour - zusammen mit Koenig & Bauer, und in diesem Film besuchen wir das Druckhaus Bechstein - etwa 40 Minuten nördlich von Frankfurt am Main. Das familiengeführte Unternehmen ist eine Full-Service-Druckerei, die hochwertige Druckerzeugnisse liefert und zudem Lagerhaltung und Fulfillment anbietet.

Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 · Offsetd...

German language / German and English subtitles “Ich erinnere mich an die schönen Zeiten, als ich als Kind in der Druckerei gespielt habe”, sagt Silvia Onkel - CEO Offsetdruck Ockel. Als es Zeit für die nächste Generation war, wussten meine Eltern immer, dass sie hofften, mein Bruder und ich würden die gleiche Begeisterung für den Druck empfinden, wie sie es taten, und heute liebt Silvia Ockel den Druck. Und das sieht man. Offsetdruck Ockel produziert jedes Jahr einen Kalender, und der Kalender dieses Jahres ist nicht nur schön gestaltet und gedruckt, sondern verwendet auch Bilder von einer anderen Leidenschaft von Silvia Ockel – nämlich Afrika. Treue Kunden und ein starker Fokus auf Nachhaltigkeit sind einige der Erfolgsfaktoren, aber auch Investitionen in Technologie, die für die Ockels wichtig sind, konzentrieren sich auf eine neue Koenig & Bauer 5-farben Rapida 106, aber auch auf Bindegeräte von Müller Martini, MBO, Stahl und anderen. Offsetdruck Ockel liefert hohe Qualität und hat viele Kunden in der Flugzeugindustrie, was dem Unternehmen direkten Zugang zu Lieferungen am Flughafen verschafft hat – was es sowohl für die Kunden als auch für Offsetdruck Ockel bequem macht. In den kommenden Wochen werden wir Sie auf eine Tour mit anderen Druckunternehmen mitnehmen – von verschiedenen Größen und Typen, um Ihnen die Vielfalt der Druckindustrie in Deutschland heutzutage zu zeigen. Koenig & Bauer hat das Projekt gesponsert, hat sich aber nicht in den Inhalt, die Fragen oder sonstiges eingemischt. Sie haben uns bei INKISH geholfen, die Fragezeichen im Film in korrektes Deutsch zu korrigieren. Bis bald zur nächsten Geschichte! "I remember the good times I played in the printing plant as a child." When it was time for the next generation, I know my parents always hoped that me and my brother would have the same emotions for print as they did, and today, Silvia Ockel loves print. And you see it. Offsetdruck Ockel produces a calendar every year, and this year's calendar is not just designed and printed beautifully but uses images from another passion Silvia Ockel has - namely, Africa. Loyal customers and a strong focus on sustainability are a few of the parameters of success, but also investing in technology, that for Ockels matter is centered around a new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106X but also binding equipment from Müller Martini, Stahl, and others. Offsetdruck Ockel delivers high quality and has many customers in the airline industry, which has given the company direct access to deliveries in the airport - making it convenient for both the customers and for Offsetdruck Ockel. In the following weeks, we will take you on a tour with other printing companies - of different sizes and types to show you the diversity of the printing industry in Germany these days. Koenig & Bauer has sponsored the project but has not interfered with the content, questions, or anything else. They have helped us at INKISH to correct the question signs in the film into proper German. See you soon for the next story!"

Carmen Martina · Instant Design Tool · F...

In the North West of The Netherlands, you will find an exciting company called Fotofabriek, which we covered a few months ago. Fotofabriek produces photo and personalized products, as you can hear from the name. Still, they also have a very comprehensive IT department that has developed a platform called Instant Design Tool. The tool enables customers to create print designs, and as Carmen Martina explains in this film, the software is a freemium version that allows customers to test before buying. The software output (PDF or PNG) can be printed with any printer, or you can route your work to Fotofabriek - super interesting and worth checking out!

Fireball Studio · Paul Yavarone & C...

We often say it, and we always mean it. Seeing so many different printing companies, that within their domains are successful is simply great. This time, we visit Fireball Studio in an area of Philadelphia, where the owner, Paul Yararone, tells us that drugs are sold just a few blocks away. However, he also tells about how streets close down traffic to celebrate local art festivals, where both his business and life partner are active. Customers are artists, schools, non-profits, and normal business customers. Despite the company's size, investments range from self-developed Apple Filemaker software to a new Canon iX-3200 Inkjet printer. Motivated staff, even a company turtle, is part of what makes the company stand out, great, and an inspiration to visit. To manage a small business with so many orders, Fireball depends on software. Filemaker for the front end, Enfocus Switch for data routing, and our Canadian friends from Ultimate TechnoGraphics deliver the secret sauce, pushing files and orders to the printer. It is a super company, producing super products and a super setup with motivated staff and owners that kick buts to grow their business - and I for sure hope to be back, expecting further integrations and utilization of Impostrip even more - of course :-) Thanks - wonderful company you have!

Super Satisfied Canon iX3200 customer · ...

It doesn't happen SO often that INKISH makes films in our backyard, but it's so nice when it happens. The first INKISH film was ALSO from Lasertryk in Denmark, but many things have changed. Back then, Xerox iGens were the workhorses of the time - now you see HP Indigo, the Canon iX3200, and, of course, the two Heidelberg XL106 - and a tonne of binding and finishing equipment. In this film, Production Manager Morten Jespersen explains how the IX3200 fits into the production and when they choose to work with either of the technologies available. Great to be back, and it is always fun to see how companies develop with a combination of focused people and the right investments! Here you can see the first INKISH film ever - also from Lasertryk :-)

Ricoh PRO Z75 Walkthrough · Sander Sonda...

Today, Ricoh officially launched the new PRO Z75 to the market - a B2+ size water-based Inkjet printer. An amazing machine focusing on the Commercial print space, but with its print on substrates up to 600 microns, is also interesting for packaging printers. With 1200 x 1200 DPI and the ability to print up to 4500 sheets an hour, Ricoh has taken a huge step into the cut-sheet market with a machine that can compete with offset and toner-based printing. In this walkthrough, Sander Sondaal gives you an idea about how the machine has been built up and works - also with space for expansion in the future. All-in-all a super nice introduction to the PRO Z75. Thank you for having INKISH on-site with Realisaprint in Contes to learn and document :-)
