A great deal of water has passed under the bridge since printing was first introduced by Johannes Gutenberg, in Germany in the middle of the 15th century. Today the industry is moving rapidly towards electronic printing technology.

All these machines need to be operated by properly trained personnel and, at fixed intervals, serviced by qualified technicians. Printing equipment service engineers undertake the installation and commissioning, disassembly and re-assembly, relocation and calibration of all kinds of printing machinery, so to offer a truly professional service, they must have a van equipped with everything they need to work at customers’ sites.
Syncro System offers these engineers extremely valuable help in the form of specially customised van racking for servicing printing equipment.
The following photos illustrate one such van.
Though the commercial vehicle in the photos above is only a small van, it is ideally suited for the job of providing logistic support and transporting spares and tools for repairing printing machines. In order to be fully functional as a mobile workshop for servicing and repairing printing and paper processing machinery, the van needs to satisfy the following basic requirements:
This upfit for a printing machinery service van includes Syncro’s new large format transparent drawers. Compared to the old, coloured plastic type, these new drawers afford:
