Orchard Press invests in the latest technology: Third Polar Flow Line System from Heidelberg UK


  • Orchard Press is taking delivery of a new Polar 115 flowline system
  • This is the third Polar system they have purchased
  • The company can achieve over 70% more efficiency than with a standalone guillotine

At the end of this month, digital and litho printer Orchard Press is taking delivery of and installing a new Polar 115 flowline system, Stacklift & Jogger. The company, which employs 16 members of staff, has invested in the new equipment to ensure they maintain the high quality their customers demand.

Every job starts with the perfect cut. The latest Polar Flow Line guillotine system creates a highly precise edge with high throughput. The Polar 115 is great for high speed, high accuracy cutting. With exact jogging and sheet preparation, and automatic pallet stacking, Orchard Press can achieve over 70% more efficiency than with a standalone guillotine.

The company invests in new equipment on a regular basis. Since their inception, they have bought eight printing presses from Heidelberg. This is the third Polar system they have purchased. The ethos of their Managing Director, Mr Adrian Williams, is to provide exceptional quality high definition printing for his customer base. He believes that keeping pace with modern technology is essential for any print business to keep its customers satisfied.

Although the pandemic has set some hurdles for Orchard, they have still managed to continue working through the last 16 months. "We believe we're in a strong position to come out of the pandemic in a better place, with a strong customer base," says Mr Williams.

The business was founded in the centre of Cheltenham in 1996 and moved to a purpose-built facility in Tewkesbury in 2004. The business has since grown from B2 to B1, and continued investment in the latest print and colour technologies ensures that Orchard remains at the forefront, in an ever-changing industry.
