Joseph Schweiger,


Personalised printing even in the smallest batch size –

digital technology makes it possible.

Digital Printing

Digital printing makes dynamically changing printing jobs possible. By linking up with a database, our customers are able to create high quality personalised mail shots, invoices, account statements and much more, quickly and easily. Reference books and text books can be printed in small (even minimal) editions alongside out-of-print books required at short notice, as well as global publications of a particular title in several different languages at once. In any case, digital printing is far more cost-effective than web offset printing for small editions. Personalised print-runs are only possible with this technology.

From narrow barcode printers and addressing applica-tions to multi-colour printing with total variability: Flexible digital printing is the future.

Generally, digital printing technology can be divided into two groups:

• Laser or toner-based printers • Ink-jet printers

This technology makes monochrome, spot (single colour) and full colour printing possible.

The installation of Kodak digital print heads into a con-ventional printing machine is offered exclusively by UN-IGRAPHICA AG. Thanks to a high printing speed, our customers are able to personalise their material in-line. The positions of the digital print heads can be varied be-tween different printing units, so that for example, adding a coating or another process step is no problem, even after personalisation.

This design can be applied to all rotary printing presses and can be adjusted to fit customers’ requirements. So our customers save valuable set-up and production time.

UNIGRAPHICA AG is an excellent supplier of new and used digital printing systems:

• Kodak Versamark – a leading manufacturer of high speed ink-jet printing systems for monochrome, spot (single colour) and full-colour applications.

• Océ – innovative products for printing and document management, for monochrome, spot (single colour) and full-colour applications.

• Nipson – a leading manufacturer of digital black and white solutions for commercial printing applications. • Rena – printing system based on HP inkjet printing

technology for the direct mailing segment. Monochrome and spot applications.

Every digital printing system needs special software to create a print job, to convert all the information into a printable data file. For years UNIGRAPHICA AG has put its trust in GMC software technology and has used it to realise countless successful projects.

GMC – the standard for personalised communication

GMC software technology supports companies in the im-plementation of effective, personalised communication programs. It increases customer satisfaction and customer loyalty, promotes the acquisition of new customers, im-proves efficiency and reduces costs.

PrintNet is an easy to implement end-to-end software so-lution, with functions for comprehensive data integration and processing, design and production, cooperation and approval, shared task management and process automisa-tion – for highly customer-specific printed or electronic communication documents.

We have been maintaining and overhauling Müller Martini printing

machines for years. This expertise and close cooperation with the

manufacturer recommends UNIGRAPHICA AG as a first-class partner

for the sourcing of new Müller Martini printing machines.

New Machinery

Müller Martini Alprinta

The Alprinta web offset press has been developed for the production of high-quality commercial work and mail shots, as well as for the manufacture of flexible packaging materials and labels. With a maximum speed of 457 m/min, the Alprinta is also the ideal press for larger production runs and the manufacture of sheets, reels, signatures or continuous fan-fold products.

The Alprinta will convince you with the following advantages:

• Printing unit for highest quality • Easy-to-use ink remote control

• Short set-up times and minimum waste thanks to the Make-Ready system.

• Two types for web widths of 520 mm and 740 mm • Flexible modular system (also for extensions) • Up to 12 offset printing units

Wide variety of products

The application possibilities of the new Alprinta are almost boundless. Commercial products and mail shots are printed in the highest quality. Even self-adhesive labels on backing material and bottle labels made of paper or

plastic foils can be produced in a single process step with in-line finishing; punching, die cutting, perforating, cross-cutting and stacking. Fast and reliable.

Innovative printing unit

Superior print quality, simple operation and high productivity are some of the outstanding advantages of the Alprinta printing unit. The 14-roller high-performance ink train and four ink form rollers achieve outstanding ink coverage even at maximum machine speed.

New – variable-format offset module

Outstanding print quality makes this technologically advanced press from Muller Martini suitable for countless applications. In addition to conventional fixed format inserts, the Alprinta can also be equipped with a size-variable insert system.

Innovative ink zone control

The Alprinta’s colour control system is unrivalled. It allows the operator to control the colour profile with ease, using a clearly laid-out touch screen monitor.

Innovative control and an optimised printing unit

The Concepta controls can be integrated into the work flow of the printing plant using the CIP standard. The Make-Ready system uses the downloaded data for opti-mised, automatic set-up of the machine. The new print-ing unit is equipped with a high-quality ink train with three form rollers and temperature-controlled distributor rollers. This ensures uniform ink coverage for the entire speed range. Target markets • Mail shots • Marketing materials • Forms • Security printing • Admission tickets • Lottery tickets • Labels

Müller Martini Concepta

The Concepta web offset press offers superior print qual-ity, convenient operation and easy access. It is highly effi-cient, even on small printing runs. The large format range from 14 to 28 1/3 ” covers a wide spectrum of jobs.

The Concepta will convince you with the following advantages:

• High performance ink train • Innovative ink zone control

• Short set-up times thanks to the Make-Ready system • Flexible modular system

• Up to 12 offset printing units

Highly versatile printing

The Concepta can process a variety of substrates, such as paper (also coated and varnished) and paper-like materi-als, as well as plastic film and aluminium foil. The print-ing press offers almost unlimited possibilities, thanks to the toolless insert change system and the integration of specialised options in in-line finishing.


Only the high quality refitting of used printing machinery and the

application of innovative technology can create real alternatives to

buying a new machine.

Used Machinery

UNIGRAPHICA AG is a market leader in the trading and overhauling of used machines, offering a comprehensive service for used web offset printing machines and web finishing machines. Our service starts with clarifying what is needed and planning the project. Then the machines are built and tested at our modern location in Liechtenstein. Installation and commissioning of the machine and staff training are carried out on-site by our own technicians and mechanics.

Our expertise complements our partners’ product range perfectly – Müller Martini, Kodak Versamark, Müller Ap-paratebau and other manufacturers. Through these suc-cessful partnerships, UNIGRAPHICA AG is able to find a tailor-made solution for every requirement profile.

Make do and mend – one of the key strengths of UNI-GRAPHICA AG is the overhauling of used printing ma-chines and post press finishing mama-chines. These are completely disassembled, cleaned and repainted in our factory. Worn and defective parts are replaced; controls are renewed; so that the reassembled machine looks as good as new. All machines receive a thorough check-up and CE certification as a matter of course. This high quality refitting, supplemented by innovative technology, allows UNIGRAPHICA AG to give a manufacturer’s war-ranty – plus the upgraded machines create a cost-effective alternative to buying a new machine.

This kind of reutilisation not only reduces operating costs, but is also environmentally responsible in these recycling conscious times.

Our expertise in the used machine market covers products from the following manufacturers:

Printing machines • Müller Martini • Edelmann Graphics • Drent Goebel • MAN • KBA Web finishing • Bielomatik • Hunkeler • Schober • PSA

• Van den Bergh • Jakob
