Belfast printer sources LE-UV long perfector for new plant in England


Quinnstheprinters.com has placed an order for a Speedmaster XL 106-8-P LE-UV press at the Heidelberg stand. It will be delivered in the new year to a new 26,500 sq ft (2,462 sq m) plant in Runcorn. Initially 30 staff will be employed there, rising to about 50 within the first six months.

Quinnstheprinters.com, a web to print trade business based in Belfast, is investing in dry sheet technology and opening a new factory to respond to customer demand for even faster turnrounds.

The company generates most of its business from printers, print management companies and designers and, by purchasing LE-UV technology which generates dry sheets that can be immediately finished, it can cut a day off the delivery with a further day cut by having a factory in England

That means it moves from two or three day service levels to same or next day turnrounds. It already takes work from online to ganged up and ready-to-print work in just ten minutes.

Managing director Peter Bradley and production director Kieron McMurrough have finalised the deal at Drupa after a six month investigation that has involved talks with many suppliers and printers worldwide. It has reviewed all the UV options.

“In Belfast we have Heidelberg and have had Komori equipment and we did also look at KBA but we would never again buy a press without Inpress Control,” says Mr McMurrough.

Mr Bradley adds that a saving of 100 to 150 sheets per makeready has saved the company £70,000 a year on the two Speedmaster B1 XLs (an eight-and five-colour) already equipped with the inline spectral device. The company holds ISO 12647-2 colour certification and this is a tool which allows it to retain the highest colour quality standards. It has also specified Autoplate Pro plate-changing.

“The automation of the Speedmaster XL 106 evens out the skills in the pressroom and is critical to efficiency,” says Mr Bradley. That is also why 99% of work is finished in-house. It provides control and minimises time waste.
