FLOWLINER FORMER -A New Revolutionary In-line-Stitcher for Broadsheet and Berliner
Tolerans celebrates 50 years as the leader in in-line stitching by launching a new lateral stitching solution. See the stitcher at World Publishing Expo in Berlin in October 9-11, 2018.
The world’s first stitched broadsheet has been produced at Hall Media Tryck AB in Jönköping. Installed at the former, the new stitcher from Tolerans makes it possible to stitch full size formats such as broadsheet and Berliner products inside the press. This innovation creates opportunities for printers to enjoy new revenue streams, cost savings and production efficiency.
The first Tolerans FLOWLINER Former was installed and tested at Hall Media Tryck in Jönköping, Sweden in September 2018. It is integrated into a KBA KF 80 folder at the former.
The new lateral stitching solution means that full-size formats such as broadsheet and Berliner products can be stitched in-line.
“We have delivered 2,000 cross-web stitching solutions for newspapers and commercial print around the world over the past 50 years. Our new lateral stitching solution creates a whole new opportunity for cost-effective stitching, allowing broadsheets and Berliners to enjoy the same advantage as tabloids for keeping the newspaper together,” Melin adds.
FLOWLINER Former is the second in a series of lateral stitching solutions from Tolerans. Stitching newspapers can increase their competitiveness and produce a higher quality product, which attracts readers and advertisers. Stitching also means more distinct sections and the ability to create more innovative layouts and designs through crossover images and articles. A stitched paper is also more likely to be recycled – an important contribution to the environment
Tolerans will exhibit in hall 21a, stand number E.14 during the World Publishing Expo in Berlin in October 9-11, 2018.
