Gortreagh Printing upgrades its four-colour capability


A Speedmaster SX 52-4-P, a B3 four-colour perfector, has been delivered to Gortreagh Printing In Ulster which has had at least 60 printing machines from Heidelberg since its inception in 1956.

Managing director Winston McAdoo has been with the company 52 years and remembers the battery of Platens and Cylinders already in place when he arrived. Today the Cookstown company still has two Cylinders (used for cutting, creasing and perforating) and two Platens for handling board work and preparing it for print.

The four-colour SX 52 replaces a four-colour GTO and will run alongside two other B3 presses, a single-colour and a two-colour. These all operate on flexible day shifts to meet customer demand.

“The GTO was ten years old and press technology has moved on so we needed to invest,” says Mr McAdoo. “The installation and training took place over ten days and we now have a machine with a top speed of 15,000sph which will safely and reliably output 12,000 sheets an hour. It will run four-colour work most of the time but the perfecting gives us back up for the spot colour pharmaceutical leaflet work we handle.”

Gortreagh Printing offers a broad portfolio of commercial print. It benefits from its central location within Northern Ireland but it sees its key differentiating advantage in the excellent service it offers. This reputation continues to bring loyal customers back time after time.

The company has also updated its guillotining over the past two years with two new Polar 92s. It also has collators and booklet-makers in house as well as a full graphics service.

Heidelberg offers both litho and digital options in B3 format. It includes the Speedmaster SX 52 Anicolor and the conventional Speedmaster SX 52 and Speedmaster SM 52 as well as latest generation digital machines, the Linoprint CP and CV models.
