I’m still amazed by the amount of engineering behind the printing process. It still seems like magic to me but to an engineer it’s not magic but instead a carefully calculated and designed series of subsystems to make a piece of paper accurately and consistently run its course and result in a printed piece.  Sensor positioning, air knifes, corrugating plates, vacuums…a few components that are part of the “magic” of printing.

We’d like to introduce a series of videos that we’ll be releasing the next few months called, “Technically Speaking.” The videos will cover a variety of topics with a more technical angle. The first video talks about the iGen4 Paper Path.  Scott and Mike take a more technical look at how paper is fed into this digital production press. Please let us know your thoughts.

What aspect of the printing process is the most “magical” to you?
