Whittington Moor Printing Works upgrades cutting with latest Polar guillotine


Whittington Moor Printing Works, a Chesterfield-based company, has been growing rapidly over the past few years. To keep pace with market and technological demands, the firm is replacing an older guillotine with a Polar 115N Plus, marking a major step forward. The Polar N115 is Polar’s best-selling guillotine worldwide, and the Plus model is the most advanced version.

“With our increasing volumes and all jobs going through one of our guillotines, the time is now to upgrade our capability, we are particularly keen to take advantage of the lifting equipment to improve the environment for staff and the integrated scales so we can have accurate sheet counts on every finishing job we do” says Paul Gamble, Managing Director of Whittington Moor Printing Works.

The Polar 115N Plus will be delivered to the Whittington Moor plant in March and will immediately be moved into production. The guillotine comes with Compucut, a feature which reduces programming time to almost zero. Providing visualisation of the job on an 18-inch colour touchscreen, Compucut increases the efficiency of the high-speed cutter. This technology also comes with Optiknife’s quick and safe knife changing, a major advantage.

Whittington Moor Printing Works has been in business in Chesterfield for over 80 years, and boasts sheet-fed litho, digital, reel to sheet NCR printing and high speed inkjetting, as well as finishing and extensive mailing services.

The company handles direct mail, commercial print, NCR and stationery across a range of stocks for national commercial organisations, public sector groups, charities and print brokers.

The new, modern guillotine will improve Whittington Moor’s productivity and quality of output, helping to ensure work is produced to top standard and can be distributed fast and efficiently.
