These state-of-the-art solutions for roll to glued book-block production feature single and double-channel delivery systems with book-by-book delivery options. Capable of speeds up to 200 meters per minute, these systems offer on-the-fly format changes and semi-automated imposition changes, ideal for short-run book printers seeking efficient and easy-to-maintain solutions.

Tecnau RoboLoad
To complement these high-speed production lines, Tecnau introduced RoboLoad, an autonomous pick-up robot designed to palletize continuous output without manual intervention, further enhancing efficiency and reducing labor costs​​.

Tecnau sheet-fed finishing for B2 and B3
Tecnau showcased also its advanced sheet-fed finishing solutions for B2 and B3 formats. The Stack 1212 system for B2 formats, featuring an input pallet feeder and Kompac’s Phoenix 20 UV/AQ coater, streamlines production by combining feeding, coating, cutting, and stacking in a single pass for various applications, including high quality photos for silver halide replacement. The Stack 1010 for B3 formats can be attached inline to sheet-fed inkjet presses, eliminating the need for guillotine cuts and labor-intensive tasks.
