Printing technologies

A European vision, cutting-edge technologies and people enhancement

It is the overall picture that makes the difference between one investment and another. It is the set of technological choices that establishes the level of reliability and corporate competitiveness. Over long distances, only companies that invest thinking about the benefits for customers can be called reliable.

50% of our systems have been depreciated in just 3 years with significant economies of scale, we are talking about hyper-performing systems that go hand in hand with almost sixty years of industrial tradition. Automated systems, running from Monday to Sunday, 24 hours a day, capable of impressive performances and significantly reducing costs, making us competitive in a segment of the highest quality.

In Arti Grafiche Boccia, we boast a level of productivity and automation of the first level and a technological configuration of excellence with 4 commercial presses, interchangeable with each other and capable of creating up to 41 types of fold, including the Komori System in duplex configuration, first and only Komori installation in Europe; 2 lines for sheetfed offset, Komori Lithrone S40P and Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105; 1 Cerutti Maxinova S4 for newspapers and large-scale distribution capable of producing tabloids of up to 96 full-colour pages; 3 staple lines and 2 softcover lines; 2 cellophane, cut, fold and die cut lines that combine power and flexibility.

Everything to guarantee our customers perfect management of all processing phases and punctuality in deliveries.

Workflow e 2 CTP Luscher 260 : 

The workflow used by AGB allows you to fully exploit the potential of the web for the management of blueprints and web approvals remotely, in real-time from any part of the globe.

In addition, with the new CTP XPose! Hybrid of Luscher Technologies, we have reached a new reference standard for Computer-to-Plate operations. With this in mind, we preferred a versatile CTO where we have total control of the best-suited configurations for our production needs.

There is also the possibility of equipping the CTP with two different types of laser and wavelength, with the result of being able to cover a wide range of different materials.

Komori Dual System

Komori Dual System:

Our Komori Dual System presses constitute Komori’s first duplex installation in Europe. These presses have a print revolution of 1250 mm, from 32 to 64 pages and 4 and 5 colours. In addition, they are able to reduce waste and start-up times without affecting print quality.

Thanks to the ability to create fast starts, the two System Komori presses offer the possibility of operating also in segments that are often occupied by sheetfed machines, with the result of optimising printing operations from medium/low runs.

In addition, Komori has developed a series of technologies that allow advanced communication and the latest generation of controls between the machine and all peripheral systems: automatic register devices, ovens and post-press equipment.

The Komori Dual System has the possibility of:

  • Creating 5-colour roto-offset jobs;
  • Water-painting all the pages of a call-mark;
  • Create self-covered products stapled directly from the presses, with foliation of 16, 32, 48 and 64 pages;
  • Water-paint the first and last pages of the self-coated sheets in the machine;
  • Over forty folding possibilities.

In addition, they are connected via fibre optics with CTP and auto-plating.
