Matching sets of equipment for everything from lightweight papers to heavy board will drive further growth in packaging printing.

A camera system for monitoring sheet movement, an intercom system between infeed and reception and the ErgoTronicApp take communication between operators and the press to a new level. Press and production status information can be accessed remotely using a smartphone. Additionally, the app provides assistance for required press service and maintenance activities with corresponding instructions.
