More than 100 web offset presses with variable sleeve technology worldwide!
At the end of last year, we installed a new Thallo web offset press at Multi Empaques Dominicana (MED) in the Dominican Republic. With the installation of this machine, the milestone of 100 web offset machines with variable sleeve technology was achieved.
The Thallo: second-generation sleeve web offset press
The Thallo is the further developed and improved version of the successful VSOP® sleeve web offset press. The first VSOP® was already sold in 2004. A total of 92 VSOP® printing presses were installed, mostly at labels and flexible packaging printers.
Based on years of experience with VSOP® and in close collaboration with users of this printing press improvements were made. The result was a second generation of web offset printing presses: the Thallo. The Thallo is manufactured under a strategic partnership with Contiweb.
Since the market introduction of the Thallo, 8 machines have been built. The Thallo for MED is the 100th machine with variable sleeve technology worldwide.
