Pioneering Printer Beefs up Printing and Cutting Capacity
A B3 printer with a record of firsts is to add a Speedmaster SM
52-4H four-colour with high pile delivery to run alongside its
SM 52-6+D, the six-colour with in-line die cutting.
This beefs up the company's printing capacity and will
relieve pressure on the six-colour so that it can extend its
die-cutting work. A two-colour Speedmaster SM 52-2 which has been
primarily used for spot colour work will go out. The new press will
run 50-50 process and spots. It is fitted with a technotrans ink
temperature control system for optimum quality.
With the new Speedmaster the company will also take delivery
of the new POLAR 78XS with two stacklifts and a jogger.
Managing Director Paul Coulson says: "The six-colour has
been a great success but we could handle more die-cutting if some
or our process work, which accounts for 85 percent of throughput,
could be transferred to the new press. The die-cutting is superb
now that we have adopted the transfer plates that were developed
for the launch of its eight-colour SM 52. It eliminates any marking
risk. The new four-colour bolsters our flexibility."
A new sales rep with strong print experience will join the company
in January and this is expected to increase the range of customers
and work handled.
In July, Lee Coulson, son of Paul Coulson, will also join the
business from school and he will have a say in the direction and
range of equipment adopted in future. For the past three years he
has worked weekends and holidays in the finishing area, even
operating what was the UK's first Eurobind 500 as well as
Stahlfolders and Stitchmaster ST 100 saddle-stitcher.
In Print is proactive in taking on new equipment and finding
ways of becoming an innovator and value added small format
supplier. In addition to print it offers design, calendars and
small scale carton services and next year will launch its first
greetings card publishing range featuring country scenes.
