Web-fed finishing equipment specialist Tecnau is partnering with four high speed inkjet vendors to hold a series of live virtual events in June 2022 to demonstrate their collective connectivity and production flexibility across a range of applications.

Reprising last year’s inaugural event, Tecnau’s Spring Forward will this year feature live presentations from customer sites in Europe and the US, ranging from highly automated solutions to mid-range production lines to meet different needs in terms of automation and investment level.

Stefano De Marco, managing director at Tecnau, stated, ‘At Spring Forward 2022 we will enter the production floor of selected customers and discover how end-to-end solutions can improve business and transform white paper to beautiful and colourful printed applications such as books, catalogues, direct mail, photos, flyers and more. We will also analyse trends and see how the digital print world is evolving and where it is heading.’

Eric Keane, managing director at UK Tecnau distributor IFS, added, ‘Last year’s Spring Forward series of live events successfully demonstrated the powerful evolution of digital print. As important as the printing engine technology is the ability for post production capabilities to be smooth, streamlined, fast and efficient. At this year’s Spring Forward manufacturers and their customers are able to demonstrate just how impactful a carefully designed combination can be.’
