Galloways ups automation with new litho press
We have now had our latest piece of the puzzle installed and commissioned – our new B1 Litho Heidelberg CX102 complete with closed loop automation, to add to our new digital and pre-press technologies.
With our recent investments now complete, we are able to offer a greater level of productivity, versatility and flexibility throughout the business which in turn will benefit our client base.
Behind the scenes, through our automated proofing solution via Switch and fully integrated systems, we can impose files automatically providing artwork is supplied in the correct format and get work to press in a timely fashion ensuring client turnarounds are met in the ever changing marketing world.
Our investment use the latest Inpress control and Intellistart 2 Heidelberg systems, meaning the inline colour measurement device within the press offers increased colour consistency by scanning every sixth sheet for register and colour balance to make sure all printed sheets meet the exact standards our clients demand. By using the closed loop automation technology, we are able to pre-set ink levels ensuring a reduction the amount of paper wasted during the start of a print run – good news for all those designs on specialist papers such as Colorplan.
This coupled with our integrated workflow system enables us to meet the demand for a variety of run lengths whilst maintaining cost efficiency, offering greater productivity and enabling us to print to the colour standards expected.
