New Press Installed

As part of our one million pound investment for 2011 our new Heidelberg XL75 5 colour press has arrived.

The decision to replace our existing Heidelberg Speedmaster was taken in the final quarter of last year due to the need for improved quality, greater efficiency and extra capacity to undertake the growth that we have set for 2011. We have always bought Heidelberg presses and after searching the market the XL75 is undoubtedly the best B2 press in the market place and comes with a coating unit and extended drier which will give our customers extremely quick turnaround times when required.

The press comes with a colour control system for effective quality assurance. The simultaneous colour control of all printing units is based on spectrophotometrically calculated values ensuring the press inks up much more quickly and less waste is produced during make-ready.

We now print on board up to 800 micron and with a transfer system through the press on a cushion of air without the need for transfer jackets we can now guarantee no marking running at speeds up to 15000 sheets per hour. How many printer’s can make that statement?

This is the first press of this kind to be installed in Oxfordshire and we are really excited as to the quality of work that we can now produce. We will be constantly looking for you, our customers to push us as far as you can so that we will be able to prove our capabilities to you.
