Teningen, Germany November 1, 2013 ¬ The renowned screen printing machine manufacturer from Southern Germany can also offer something different: The THIEME 3000 D digital printing system, developed at Thieme, combines state-of-the-art digital components with proven Thieme machine technology.
Digital printing is not only gaining ground in the graphics sector but also in many industrial applications. Thieme GmbH & Co. KG, a world leader in screen printing solutions, is following the demands of its customers and now presenting the first digital printing machine to be completely developed in house. It involves a variable machine concept which can be individually tailored to customer needs.
Both the printing format and the transport technology are variable with different option packages also being offered. "Every customer receives their own customised machine", confirms Thieme Sales Manager Oliver Beck. "Also with the new digital printing system, Thieme abides by its product strategy to not supply standard machines from a catalogue but rather individualized solutions."
Innovative printing solution on a proven basis The new digital printing machine is based on proven Thieme machine components. As with Thieme screen printing machines, this machine is extremely sturdy and suited for industrial applications. The usual components such as feeders, transport systems, and stackers can also be integrated without restriction. It can even be combined with a screen printing station to create a hybrid machine. "Our extremely variable machine concept is not simply an adaptation of the typical graphics machines, but rather fully tailored to the needs of our industrial customers", emphasises Oliver Beck. "Highly precise drive technology and carefully selected components make it possible to achieve very high resolution and productivity."
The new digital printing system was thoroughly tested in everyday operation as part of the development process and will be unveiled November 1, 2013. A machine will be exhibited at the Fespa-Digital 2014 printing fair in Munich.
The THIEME engineering works was founded in 1960 by Werner Thieme who thus laid the foundation for today’s company. In the printing systems and polyurethane business sectors, THIEME GmbH & Co.
KG currently employs about 350 people around the world. The headquarters of THIEME is in Teningen, near Freiburg in South-West Germany. The company serves its customers with sales and service subsidiaries in France, Great Britain, and the United States.
