Matheson Higgins/Congress Press Adds New Foil-Stamping and Embossing Presses

Monday, April 02, 2007

Press release from the issuing company

WOBURN, MA – March 30, 2007 – Matheson Higgins/Congress Press, one of New England’s leading graphic arts finishers, has recently added two new foil-stamping and embossing presses in its Woburn, MA, facility. One of the new presses is a Bobst 1280 with an Eagle Foil Pull System and is capable of running a sheet size up to 36" x 49 1/2". This is a high-speed press with lots of tonnage to produce a deep, crisp emboss, or large, foil-stamped areas. The second new press is a Johannisberg with a Beddis Kenley Artfoil System and is capable of running a sheet size up to 28" x 40". The Johannisberg is a cylinder press that is capable of stamping fine type or large solids easily. Both of the new presses, installed last December, have already been used extensively. “As we continue to grow,” said company president Jay Smith, “it was important that we enter the larger sheet market, and that meant we needed two of the larger presses. Now we have the capabilities to service all of our market.” In addition to the new presses, MH/CP has the following stamping and embossing equipment: - seven automatic presses for sheet sizes up to 14" x 22" - three automatic presses for sheet sizes up to 20" x 28" - two hand-feed presses for sheet sizes up to 28" x 40"
