As a machine builder, we develop and realise modular machines for the rotary processing of narrow web roll stock. We specialise above all in joining different material webs to form multilayer products.
In addition to complete machines, we offer special assemblies and products for the roll goods processing industry.
Our customers use Printum machines to produce multilayer labels, motorway vignettes, membranes for fuel cells (MEA), insulators for battery cells, flexible packaging, printed electronics, membranes and glue traps, among others.
One of our projects that impressively shows how diverse the requirements from the market are.
The trend toward biological pest control continues. For the insect monitoring required for this purpose, large quantities of so-called glue traps are needed worldwide.
The machine presented here processes a substrate from the roll into insect glue traps. In this case, a “Role to Piece plant”. Glue on one or both sides, covered with or without silicone paper, with pheromone application, printed and prepared with punched holes to hang up the product.
We are a real niche player with big goals! In order to solve the most demanding requirements of our customers every day, we think big, out of the box, at 360 degrees, around the corner and in detail – just as creative as possible!; We have a clear growth strategy, which we implement authentically and with pleasure based on honest values.
Want to support the achievement of our ambitious goals with your talent?
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Our origins lie in the label converting industry - our name Printum comes from this period. Over the years we have successfully transferred the technological approach of rotary processing of roll goods to other industries.
Today we translate pick & place processes and manufactory production into rotary production processes - across industries and internationally.
Keyword individualisation! Reduced batch sizes with higher product variety -> short setup times with high flexibility and format variability.
Rarely does a product run for days on a line. Rather, it must be possible to produce several products on one line for efficient capacity utilisation.
As a pure engineering company, we have a low vertical range of manufacture. Our focus is on the processes in the plant. We get purchased parts from all well-known manufacturers, and we prefer to obtain production parts from our partners in the region. Once all parts have arrived, they are assembled at our facility. Our commissioning technicians then take the machine to the FAT/SAT with test runs and performance tests.
At the beginning, we deal very intensively with the material to be processed or its properties. Our guiding principle: No project planning without material!
The material is decisive for the design of the system, in terms of mechanics and software. There also has to be a certain market size behind a project – because the output at our plants is gigantic.
Processes are the centre of our attention. In the end, mechanical engineering in itself is a means to an end. We want to make our customers more successful.
We master a high-precision rail transport through all process steps.
Furthermore, we take great care to develop the software simultaneously with the mechanics. Our programmers are involved in the project planning phase from the very beginning. This ensures that software and mechanics are optimally matched to each other.
Roll production has faster cycle times and is therefore ideally suited for high volumes and low-cost products. Rotating tools allow high reproducibility of product quality.
Although we are all developers at heart, we don't want to constantly reinvent the wheel. If we find a solution of adequate quality on the market for a process step, we will always prefer it. If the market does not yet have a solution, we go into the development of the assembly or component ourselves. In most cases, we have at least one complete process step in development in every project.
