Trelleborg’s printing solutions operation will be bringing together its full range of high performance offset blankets for the first time at this year’s ‘All in Print’ exhibition in Shangai from Oct 24 – 28.
The company’s established Vulcan, Rollin and Printec brands will be joined by Sava products, featuring revolutionary ’cord’ technology, to offer Chinese print customers the widest range of blanket options to date.
Marco Carlini, Trelleborg Printing Solutions Regional Sales Director for the Asian Pacific region, says: “The decision to debut the full range at the event underlines Trelleborg’s commitment to China with ongoing investment in the market a priority.
“We have made considerable progress in China in recent years, not just in establishing our first ever manufacturing facility in Shanghai but also through building a reputation for technical excellence and customer support.
“Key to this has been the development of a strong network of distributors and dealers across all areas together with a series of conversion facilities providing a perfect match between our blankets and individual print requirements.
“As a result our sales continue to grow in all segments and we are now one of the leading offset blanket suppliers in China across commercial, packaging and specialist areas such as security and business forms as well as critical applications such as UV and coating.”
Trelleborg’s Printing Solutions Operation remains 100% focused on the long-term market-leading Vulcan, Rollin and Printec products as well as its overall offer to printers, with Sava adding an interesting new dimension for Chinese print businesses, Carlini believes.
“Innovation and new product development have been two of Trelleborg’s key objectives over the years and we have worked hard to meet the precise demands of the Chinese print market through the development of great products supported by global resources and local expertise.
“The Sava products allow us to build on this strong foundation by offering blankets specifically aimed at multi-purpose use in packaging and offset commercial printing operations and complements our existing brand portfolio perfectly.
“Specifically, the inclusion of Sava products allows us to offer a complete solution across all offset printing applications and requirements backed up by a world of technical experience and knowledge.”
According to Tomaz Percic, Director of Trelleborg’s printing solutions from Slovenia, Sava products offer significant benefits in specific applications such as sheet-feed offset printing.
“The unique construction of the Sava Advantage offset printing blanket, based on ’cord’ technology, offers outstanding dimensional stability, good resilience and impact resistance combined with a long working life and excellent print quality.
“It is a revolution in the development of offset printing blankets for the printing industry and in certain applications can bring outstanding advantages and savings for printers.”
Visitors to the Trelleborg stand at ‘All in Print’ will be able to discuss its full range of printing solutions with a global team of technical experts alongside local product specialists.
An important feature of the stand will be the opportunity for visitors to see the products in action in a specially created virtual reality booth that puts the individual at the heart of a large commercial printing press.
