Web Offset Need Continues Growth

Web Offset Need Continues Growth

Every month there seems to be a new Web Offset installation that has popped up out of nowhere. The demand for complex Web Offset presses and better technology to perform the pre-press operations more quickly and more cost-efficiently is at an all-time high.

Look at newspaper printing, for example. The rise of digital information (the majority of people now get their news from online news sources, Twitter, homepages, etc.), a lot of printing news publications have limited their press runs, stop printing all together, or have switched to a different format. The need for Web Offset for these applications still exists, it just a matter of changing the technology to match where the market is headed.

"Father and son owners Jack and John Batdorff not only believe that the future of hyper local newspapers is bright, but that there is still an important need for web offset printing, as well," reported PI World Magazine about the rise of Web Offset in different industries.

In order to meet the changing demand, companies like Energy Sciences Inc. have created new eBeam curing systems for Web Offset presses to meet the industry needs.

For example, there are different EZ Cure electron beam system configurations available for web offset presses running thin extensible films, standard gauge films, paper, or paperboard for folding cartons. The benefits are superior quality printed products, high speed production, instantaneous cure, and significantly lower operating costs.
