The digital transformation with Big Data, Smart Data, AI, Machine-Learning or Neuronal Networks, just to mention a few promising technology fields, is profoundly altering the daily production routine in the printing sector. But how can Printing houses benefit concretely from this situation? Maintellisense, the in-house developed service platform from manroland Goss provides the appropriate answer. The combination of the terms Maintenance, Intelligence and Sense, shortened to Maintellisense, embodies the understanding of the web offset specialists from Augsburg of Service Solutions 4.0, in just one word. The focus of Service today lies in the development of practicable applications for the Next Generation, which optimise the production processes via the deployment of intelligent technologies, increase the systems efficiency and thereby sustainably reduce the total costs.

Every Printing house is sooner or later faced with the decision: retrofit or new investment? Basically, almost any existing press, independent of age or manufacturer, can be transformed into such a condition that it meets current customer expectations. The most significant benefits of a retrofit are obvious: it secures the press availability of the existing system for many years to come and it reduces operating costs, thanks to improved spare part availability. And it doesn't always have to be a comprehensive and expensive retrofit. manroland Goss has developed solutions as part of its Smart Retrofit Solutions program which makes it possible to upgrade individual sub-areas or to raise them to current state-of-the-art technology. The team of experts accurately determine what fits the business model best in each separate case, through individual consultation sessions.

Regardless of the primary market segment of a business, Heidelberg has scalable solutions to impact printers of any size. With educational presentations every 30 minutes, Heidelberg’s industry experts will take the stage in Booth 10143 at PRINTING United to address how new technology advancements are drastically improving all areas of customers’ print shops – from prepress to press to postpress and beyond.
