Palm Print celebrates its 25th anniversary with the arrival of its latest digital press, the Versafire CV 80, which is being installed by Heidelberg engineers this week.
The CV 80 will sit alongside our Konica C8000, Ricoh C901 and Roland XC540 wide format press and will provide Palm Print with the ability to print in house six page A4 and four page A4 landscape formats which they previously have had to outsource.
The Versafire CV 80 provides Palm with the ability to print on various textured papers and films plus produce cutting edge print effects including printing with white or a clear spot varnish.
“This press takes digital printing to an entirely different level,” says David Melbourne, operations director of the Bournemouth based company. “The opportunities it opens for creative designers are unbelievable and we will be demonstrating its capabilities to existing and potential customers with a series of open houses over the coming weeks. Creativity should not be constrained by the limitations of what has now become dated technology.”
“We invested an enormous amount of time researching the various presses on the market and were very impressed not only with this machine's capabilities but also the advice and support we have received from Heidelberg.”
Palm Print handles a high volume of work comprising both local and major national accounts, including variable data mailers for several car manufacturers. In addition to its digital printing and signage portfolio it offers finishing services which include cutting, folding, laminating, stitching, perfect binding and foiling facilities.
The new press will operate on a flexible day shift basis. The Versafire CV 80 will handle stocks of 52 to 360gsm in formats from 100 x 140mm to 330 x 70mm and at speeds of 2,400 A3 sheets an hour or 80 A4 pages a minute. It can personalise or customise printed jobs.
