Hybrid Printing Solutions
At Drent Goebel we believe that hybrid printing is the future and it is already offered by Drent Goebel. That is why all our machines are designed for modular construction enabling integration of all types of printing technologies in one press with offset as a basis. Flexography, gravure, screen printing and so on can all be included, even after installation of the press.
Hybrid printing presses offer you the possibility to reach every single bit of the market, whether it is cost-effective offset printing or a combination of offset and gravure to reach the highest quality demands, you can offer it all with one machine. Because of the fact that your machine configuration is changeable at any time, you have the flexibility that is desired by the market. In other words true flexibility in printing!
Commercial Printing Solutions
Whether you are a printer of Direct Mail, Brochures, Leaflets, Magazines or other forms of Commercial Print materials, Drent Goebel has the effective solution for you.
For this form of printing it is important to print high-quality on two sides of the substrate in an effective way and with a lot of finishing possibilities like folding, sheeting, die-cutting, laminating and stacking in-line. Drent Goebel`s web-offset machines offer all this and much more.
For commercial printers working with only a small number of print sizes, Drent Goebel`s Vision and Novaprint are the presses to consider. Equipped with a turner bar and sheeter these machines can print up to 30.000 sheets an hour printing on both sides of the web. That is almost twice as much as a sheet-fed machine can offer you.

Label Printing Solutions
In the label printing industry there is a clear `substrate-shift` from paper to foil, i.e. shrink sleeves, in-mould labels etc. Drent Goebel`s VSOP offers label printers easy and affordable size variability combined with the known high quality of offset on any kind of substrate. It is very easy to incorporate other printing technologies in-line, so you can construct a press that is the perfect FIT for every demand your customers have.
Cardboard Printing Solutions
Shapes and impressions of cardboard products are getting more diverse and the brand owners demand the highest possible print quality for their impressions. At the same time job runs get shorter, forcing you to be more flexible. Drent Goebel`s printing presses can help you to have an answer to these demands.
The VSOP, with its easy and affordable size variability, offers the right FIT. With web-widths from 520mm, 850mm, 1120mm and even 1250mm you can always find the printing press that suits your needs. Incorporating other printing technologies in-line offers you the possibility to differentiate from your competitors.
Flexible Packaging Printing Solutions
Whether it concerns 10 µm thin film for biscuit packaging or 200 µm thick film for pouches it can all be printed on a Drent Goebel printing press. Flexible packaging is taking over the market, taking away market share from cardboard and glass. Especially when it concerns food packaging there is always the hesitation to work UV inks, therefore Drent Goebel supports Electron Beam (EB) curing on all of its printing presses.
Although the possibility of printing flexible substrates in offset was discovered on a VISION press, the VSOP press is the most suitable solution available to the market. With its easy and affordable size variability the VSOP offers an answer to all the demands from the market. Thanks to the modular build-up of this hybrid machine it is possible to incorporate all kind of printing technologies in-line, even after installation of the press.
Web-Fed Security Presses
Web-fed printing has several decisive advantages over the sheet-fed technique, especially when producing bank notes and other securities.
Highest Production Speeds
The most important advantage is the clearly higher production speed of a web press. The web process gives the highest output of all available security presses.
Increased Level of Control
Another big advantage is the increased level of control over production. When producing e.g. bank notes inline the complete process can be clearly supervised and documented from start to finish. On a sheet-fed press the control over quantities of used paper, such as start-up waste and any misprints, is much more difficult to achieve.
In-line Finishing Options
When producing bank notes from the reel, the web immediately goes through a line of finishing units, with all obvious advantages. At the start of the press the printer inserts the reel, and at the end completely finished, numbered and counted notes come off the production line. During this process the printer can be absolutely sure that every piece of bank note paper, printed or not, is perfectly supervised and documented.
All Security Precautions
Drent Goebel`s latest web-fed security press, which will be delivered and installed over the next two years, will set a new standard in printing bank notes. This press incorporates all the latest technical developments, such as those that were used for printing euro bank notes. This includes techniques such as intaglio printing, multi-colour offset printing, the numbering of front and back of the bank notes and screen printing to apply optically variable inks.
The press also makes use of the latest technology to inspect and control the web. In addition, it has non-stop units that ensure a smooth continuous production flow during unwinding and rewinding of the reels, and a sheeter that cuts the notes exactly down to size. Together with its shaftless drive technology, these features make the Drent Goebel web press the most innovative press in the world.
Of course Drent Goebel sells security printing machines exclusively to enterprises which have been officially authorized by the State in which the machines will be in operation.
