The adphos Tower is a truly modular system. Designers can create a high performance, extremely cost effective solution while enabling the integration of digital monochrome and/or process color inkjet printing with traditional offset web presses or finishing lines. This allows personalized imprinting and makes the traditional web a hybrid press.
The towers may also be used (in conjunction with the appropriate inkjet technology) to create a stand-alone digital press – both mono and process color. The key is the designer/ creator defines the components that adphos puts into the solution, thus creating the needed functionality and excellence at an affordable price!
With an increasingly price sensitive marketplace, a print provider can no longer purchase equipment to deliver the whole spectrum of potential requirements at once. The company must purchase the correct specification of equipment for today´s needs in the print plant – it is now for the solution designer to specify what functions are required and purchased.
It is with this thought in mind that the engineering and design teams within the adphos Group have created the adphos Tower. A fully modular solution allowing extremely economical and utilitarian solutions, mid-range competitive solutions with wider functionality and fully functioning systems for higher productivity.
Based on the concept which uses standard building blocks for all models, the adphos Tower allows full modularity and upgradability.
Thus the range allows for a single rail, single-headed system without the need for drying newspapers, up to a full width fully process color duplex system running at speeds in excess of 600 mpm (2,000 fpm) and beyond.
