The Printing Unit
The Student Council’s Printing Unit prints products both for the Student Council and external entities.
Since there are some exciting features, we would like to present our machines in more detail.
Our 3D printing service has its own webpage by the way.
Digital printing is our daily business. Whether scripts or the Impulsiv, all this is printed on our Océ varioPRINT 110. The varioPRINT prints very precisely at high speed, but only in black and white. At 110 pages per minute, the machine works a little faster than the average printer, and the printed products can also be post-edited with a punching and stitching unit.
Designed as a production machine, the VarioPRINT also runs uninterruptedly without any problems.
With up to one hour of unattended working time, it also works very gently on personnel, so that you have to insert new paper and empty the output trays at the latest.
As a colour printer, we also have a Canon imageRUNNER c5250i at our side. It is characterized by an intuitive handling and a modern interface. If you have spent several days dealing with the settings and stumbling blocks of the device, the results are really good. A classic printer.
For very large runs or special requirements (silver printing, perforating) we use offset printing, the most efficient process for large output quantities. Currently, however, there are no printing employees who can operate this printing machine.
We manufacture the printing plates required for monochrome printing in our own darkroom in order to work as cost-effectively as possible.
Only the plates for colour printing are purchased from external suppliers due to the higher quality required.
We are the last student body of the TU Munich to own an offset printing machine.
Our Heidelberg GTO is designed as a precision machine, which allows to print several colors on one side and even to make real four-color printing (where the color is mixed by juxtaposing small color dots). The maximum page output is 8000 sheets per hour, the maximum sheet format 320x460mm.
Our electronic cutting machine, internally also affectionately called “Gloria”, offers us the possibility to produce products outside the usual paper formats.
Since we have our own binding machine, we are able to perfect bind small runs by hand.
3D printing has its own page.
In order to produce the various print products of the MPI Student Council, we have our own small print shop.
We would like to present its staff here briefly. They are all students.
