Large Offset Press Room
Our Large Offset Press Room features 18 printing units larger than 19 x 25. All our large equipment are Heidelberg presses which are world-renown for dependability and quality.
We have a 6-color and a 5-color Heidelberg Speedmaster 102 (28 x 40). Both are equipped with in-line aqueous coating. We also have a 5-color Heidelberg MO (19 x 25-1/2). All 3 presses feature CPC controls which allow the pressmen remote control functions of the equipment from a central point. This feature allows us to have faster make-readies, reduce waste substantially and obtain high speed production while maintaining an equally high level of quality.
All our multi-color presses are equipped with X-Rite scanning densitometers and computerized color management systems. These units provide our pressmen with critical information that enables them to produce consistent controlled color from start to finish.
Both presses are backed up by a 20 x 28 2-color Heidelberg Speedmaster Perfector. This press allows us to print both sides of the paper in one pass/one color per side, or straight 2-color multi-color work. It has been and still is an industry workhorse in many plants across the world. It provides us with a security blanket for our clients should one of our multi-color presses experience a mechanical problem during a peak period.
