Sheet-fed Offset Printing

The sheetfed-offset prinitng is a indirect process, which is most common in the fields of book-, newspaper-, commercial-, label- and packaging printing.

Sheetfed offset print means that you do not print directly onto the paper, but on a interjacent rubber roller, which applies the colour onto the paper.

This technique is also called flat or surface printing: the printing plate does not have any deepening or height. A special surface coating defines, which parts of the printing form are printed and which not. Before the print, the printing plate will be covered with water. The water adheres at those points, which should not be printed. It drains from the points which should be printed. After that, the colour will be applied onto the printing form. The colour does not adhere to those points, where water adheres. The colour adheres at those points, where no water adheres to the printing form.

After that, the colour will be applied from the printing form onto a rubber roller, the so-called blanket, which applies the colour onto the paper. Sheet-offsest presses get the paper via portioned sheet. These sheets are assorted as piles in the feeder. The so called gripper systems brings the sheet individually through the printing machine. The paper is printed in the printing machine and then piled again in the delivery.

Besides the speed of up tu 20.000 sheets/h, it is the reduced set up time which is most important especially for small runs. This saving of time can be achieved by important features such as automatic and simultaneous plate changing and washing systems. Computerized control units and in and offline measuring and control technology assure the qualtiy. The main manufacturers of sheetfed offset printing machines are MAN Roland, Heidelberg, KBA, Komori, Mitsubishi and Ryobi.

Diecutters

Diecutters are used in industrial packaging companies as an integral part for manufacturing boxes and displays, but also are used in commercial print shops for manufacturing labels, advertising media, stationary and other products. Punching machines, which are used for this purpose are flat-bed diecutting or upgraded letterpress machines:

Flatbed die cutter
Here, the sheet is fed to the feeder and comes under a tool having the contours of the packaging and punches.In stripping the cut parts are separated from the blank and the sheet is fed to the sheet delivery.

Punching machines in letterpress printing
Of course, in thousands of print shop are still used the indestructible Heidelberg platen or cylinder as punching device.With these machines, for example, folders with tabs, business cards with blind embossing, letter sheet with detachable remittance slip, parking discs etc. still are made.

The most popular manufactures are Bobst, Heidelberg, Jagenberg, Wupa, Kama and Iberica.

Folding machines

A folding machine is a device used primarily to fold printed sheets in order to achieve a smaller format of a product with consecutively numbered pages. An example for such a product is a classic saddle stitched brochure.

There are two main folding principles – buckle folding and knife folding, latter mentioned normally combining both folding principles in one machine.

Knife folders hit the paper with a blunt .There are two main folding principles – buckle folding and knife folding, latter mentioned normally combines both folding principles in one machine.

Buckle folders feed paper until it hits an obstacle and reacts by buckling. Then the paper is transported between high friction rollers which squeeze the material and actually perform the fold. Finally rollers supported by a spring press the front edge of the paper into a so called pocket.
Knife between two rollers, just strong enough to crease the paper along the required line.
Paper folders can be equipped with two kinds of paper feeders:

Round-pile feeder – paper is fed non-stop: for high volumes
Pallet feeder (pile feeder) –for medium volumes
Flat-pile feeders (pile feeder) – for low volumes and small formats

Additional optional attachments for paper folders allow enhanced functions such as gluing, cutting, perforating and creasing.
Furthermore there are different options for delivering the folded product.
The conventional stream delivery delivers the folded paper on a belt and is gathered by the operator by hand for further usage. Vertical press deliveries deliver the folded paper in pressed stacks and are normally used for economic processing of larger volumes.
