Vprint Enhances Direct Mail Service with 4th Contiweb Dryer
First Contiweb Ecocool Dryer to be installed alongside three Ecoweb Dryers
Leading Belgian-based print provider Vprint has invested in an Ecocool dryer – its fourth Contiweb dryer to date – to improve the quality of its direct mail service. Joining three Contiweb Ecoweb dryers installed on web offset press lines, the Ecocool system is already proving to strengthen the company’s competitive edge.
Superior drying quality
Designed to use low temperatures and high air volumes, the Ecocool reduces the negative effects of heating the web and delivers superior drying quality. This results in a high gloss finish with less fibre lifting, ensuring that print providers can meet the strict quality requirements of even the most demanding print buyers.
Integrated chilling section
As the world’s first dryer to feature an integrated chilling section, the Ecocool is designed to eliminate the negative impact of solvent condensation on the web during or after the chilling process. With nine small rollers turning the web at sharper angles, greater surface pressure is created than that produced by traditional chilling modules. This improves heat transfer and minimizes the opportunity for a solvent boundary layer to form. From an output perspective, this allows the web to stretch and prevents wrinkles from forming, resulting in high-quality print.
“For us, the Ecocool dryer is a winning solution,” says Ngoma. “With the improvement in quality delivered by the Contiweb dryers, our position as a leading provider of corporate direct mail communications is secure.”
Jennifer N’Guyen, Area Sales Manager at Contiweb adds: “Vprint is a perfect example of how our auxiliary equipment provides the ideal solution for those seeking to improve their print line efficiencies or output. Also, in today’s environmentally conscious society, we are witnessing a growing shift in print providers seeking greener solutions. Engineered to optimize the web offset drying process, our dryers use 50 percent less gases than traditional systems when fitted with integrated pollution control.”
