March delivery set for Cowan Print’s new Stahlfolder BH 56.

“I went to Germany to view the Stahlfolder BH 56 last week and it was even better than I thought it was going to be. We have ordered this machine with an SPH delivery,” says Craig Cowan, managing director of Cowan Print in Kilsyth, Glasgow.

“We saw the BH 56 run at higher speeds than we expected. We are going to run this folder alongside a Ti40 and will replace an older Morgana folder which we had only kept on for cross-fold work which will now go on the BH 56.”

Cowan Print wanted a more automated folder and one that would provide an enhanced range of folds, at speed and to the best quality. It will be used to finish work from both the litho and digital equipment.

It is just a year since the company moved up to B2 production with a Speedmaster SX 74-5H which operates on a double day shift at the 950 m2 factory.

Heidelberg recommended the BH 56 to Cowan Print. This model produces 8pp A4 signatures at 13,000 sheets per hour. It can handle sheet sizes up to 560 x 900 mm and paper weights of 40 to 250 gsm and is operated from a touchscreen graphic user interface.

The additional SPH stream delivery with integrated pressing device means signatures are flattered, making it easier to feed into stitching or binding lines.

He welcomes the increase in folding capacity as business is brisk for this general commercial operation which offers a design and print service specialising in magazines but also producing brochures, leaflets, letterheads, business cards, stationery, envelopes, NCR work and labels.

This year Cowan Print will celebrate its 30th anniversary.
