Today, around 450 million people worldwide still enjoy reading a newspaper. Moreover, the total number of daily readers is estimated at more than 1 billion. Around the world, daily newspapers are predominantly produced using the coldset offset printing process.
The performance of offset printing presses remains impressive. The modern day press can produce up to 100,000 copies per hour. More colour, faster speeds, higher efficiency and lower costs are the key issues driving this industry.

This, in turn, points to the trend towards higher levels of automation, shorter changeover times, reduction of waste and fewer breaks during splicing necessary to achieve these higher efficiencies. With the development of EasySplice® Printline, tesa has set standards worldwide for the efficient, fast and secure performance of flying splices during roll changes in newspaper printing.
The new generation of tesa EasySplice® products also lives up to the highest quality expectations.

This becomes more imperative as the age of automation is upon us. tesa EasySplice® 'ROBOTIC' meets this new demand with the automatic splice applicators.
