Advantages of web printing

Web-fed production has several decisive advantages over sheet-fed operation. The most important advantage is the clearly higher productivity, with fewer operators on the press and no need for intermediate storage, counting and transportation. The total investment into a web-fed banknote production line is much lower compared to necessary cost for an according sheet-fed banknote line. Additionally the cost of operation is also much lower, because of lower need for operators, storage rooms and counting and logistical services. And the third advantage of web-fed banknote production is an increased security level resulting from the uninterrupted in line production process. All state-of-the-art anti-counterfeiting methods are available. All latest state-of-the-art high security printing technologies are applicable in web-fed operation. Register accuracy print to print is much higher compared to off line sheet-fed operation. Operators work much more efficiently, and less space is required. In general, stock reels are less expensive than substrates in sheet format.

Web-fed functionality

It is not only easier to feed a continuous web through print towers than single sheets, but it is also more efficient. A continuous web is to a great extent self-guiding, as it is drawn by pulling groups and it is under constant web tension. There is no fluttering of sheets. And there is no “trapezoid effect” in intaglio printing, which creates large register deviations in sheet-fed banknote printing. Curling or raising up of front ends of sheets, caused by loss of moisture when drying during the pass from print unit to print unit, is unknown. The web is optimally guided without any negative impact on register colour to colour. In fact higher quality can be achieved in print to print register accuracy, even in intaglio printing recto to verso “intaglio see-through register”. Print quality is at least the same compared to sheet-fed printing, and register accuracy is much higher in web-fed printing, because of the continuous in line process.
