Web printing vs Plano Offset

Web presses are generally known from newspapers, with high capacity, high-speed printing from a reel to a reel. Plano offset is printed on pre-cut sheets of paper.

Web printing is most of the time used for large run lengths (a lot of copies of the same) on the same substrate, because exchanging reels is not easy and one loses paper with every changeover. Sheetfed/Plano offset is more flexible in changing the paper. With sheetfed presses, the handling of the paper is a limitation to the speed. This is not the case with web printing. So production speeds of Web presses are far higher than Sheetfed presses, however, web presses are far more expensive.

Komori has years of experience in manufacturing Web and Sheetfed presses and with highly automated reel and plate exchange systems, Komori has now launched its System G38. Robert Holscher
