Flying roll change agreement delivers non-stop digital print

An agreement between Hunkeler and Quantum Design has led to a new combination for non-stop production in digital printing.

Quantum owns the KTI line of automatic splicers and turret rewinders, and will become the exclusive supplier for Hunkeler.

The partnership follows collaboration on the custom Hunkeler RS8 automatic splicing machine and TR8 automatic turret rewinder, already being sold as part of a complete inline finishing system for digital printing.

Hunkeler displayed the solution at Innovationdays 2019, and had planned to showcase it at DRUPA 2020. More than a dozen installations have been delivered to the US, Germany, Italy and UK in the first year.

Hunkeler and Quantum are currently designing a third model that will be released and sold as part of Hunkeler's finishing line in 2021.
