Friday, October 29, 2004
LOS ANGELES — Cenveo Anderson Lithograph has purchased a Diamond 16 MAX commercial web offset press, the company announced today. The high-end commercial printer will install the press at its Los Angeles manufacturing facility. The press configuration is a six-unit/ one-web with a pinless combination folder and pinless former folder. The Diamond MAX Series is the newest generation of commercial web presses from Mitsubishi. In a single-web configuration, the Diamond 16 MAX produces 16-page signatures at the operational design speed of 1,800 feet per minute, and employs a mini-gap blanket design. It also features a shaftless drive system that results in lower power consumption, quieter operations, faster makeready times and simpler press maintenance. The Diamond 16 MAX incorporates as standard equipment Mitsubishi's MAX-Saver waste-reduction software. Other standout features include digitally controlled ink key cassettes that ensure high-precision control of ink volume supply and a high-speed semiautomatic plate-changing system that significantly reduces job makeready. The infeed pretension function capitalizes on the inherent advantages of the shaftless drive system to guarantee quick press startup.
