Walsh snaps up Heidelberg’s new high output Stahlfolder


Walsh Colour Print has kept to its customer pledge to be at the cutting edge with technology by being the first Irish company to purchase the new Stahlfolder TH 82-P that is launched by Heidelberg at Drupa.

Husband and wife team Tony and Patricia Walsh visited Heidelberg’s Hall 1 stand and placed the order on Sunday.

“We are a trade printer and handle a lot of book and sections work. We were very impressed by this new folder which will give us the control and output we need. We know we are getting a robust and reliable folder and we are also confident in the support and back up that Heidelberg provides,” says Tony Walsh, managing director.

The Stahlfolder TH82-P is an impressively high output buckle folder with full automation targeted at the most productive industrial printers. Shingled feeding enables more sheets to be processed in less time without increasing the machine speed. It can handle 16,000 16-page A4 sections an hour with a machine running at speed of just 139 metres a minute. That means maximum paper control, even with sensitive papers, as well as high output of standard section format work. There is also a combination equivalent, the KH 82-P.

Walsh Colour Print will take delivery of the supplementary folder in October. The Kerry company already uses Stahlfolder technology and Polar guillotines from Heidelberg. The new machine will run round the clock; Walsh Colour Print operates three eight hour shifts a day to meet its customers’ needs. Its focus is on high productivity, reliable quality and keen pricing.

“We have been impressed by how busy this Drupa has been. It is clear that there is a much more positive vibe and a willingness to invest,” says Mr Walsh.
