With plans to extend its premises by 15,000 sq ft at the start of next year, Irish company Cashin Print did not hesitate to order an additional press to run alongside three other Heidelberg machines.
“We had to increase our printing capacity to meet the rise in demand from our customers,” says Damien Cashin, managing director. “Although we did review our options we are comfortable with Heidelberg; they know what they are doing. The SM 102 we have already does exactly what is required of it. Press technology is always advancing and we think now the Speedmaster SX 102 is exactly right for our requirements.”
That means 1:1 perfected single colour printing, primarily for manuals sections for the pharmaceutical sector. The two-colour B1 machine had to be able to handle lightweight stocks through the press to top quality at speed. Cashin Print are impressed by what they have heard about the feeder and look forward to taking delivery in the next few weeks.
The SX technology features the Prinect Press Center control station with the process-oriented Intellistart operator guidance system, which automatically determines and implements the optimum process sequence for job changes.
“Our operators are pleased to have a fourth Heidelberg press coming in and our customers will benefit significantly. We will be able to offer them even shorter lead times and take on additional work for them,” says Mr Cashin.
The press will operate a double day shift, operating 16 hours a day. Building work at the Castlebar, County Mayo, plant begins in the first quarter of 2015. This is an expanding company which this year has recruited a new operations manager, quality manager and financial accountant.
