imPRESSions Worldwide has been selected to provide a 12 tower, 4 folder, single wide press with 546 mm (21.5 inch) cutoff. The press will be installed and operational by October 2012 in the southeastern United States. imPRESSions is rebuilding the towers and folders from the frames up, providing the owner with a cost effective solution to meet their vision of increasing color and page capacity. The press carries an extended warranty. Included in this order will be a complete Perretta automation suite for ink and motorized auto register, US Automation ink levelers and web detector system, enhanced decking with 3rd level catwalks, new IW drive systems, new IW control consoles, 12 splicers at right angle with console control of sidelay, upgraded folders, and provision for future UV.
The press will replace a 22.75 inch cutoff Urbanite with limited color capacity. The new press will have a shorter cut-off; provide color on all pages, enhanced quality, lower waste and faster speed with a more flexible production window. The press will be set up to run anything from a 32 page broadsheet (64 page tab) down to a 4 page tab. All towers are selectable to multiple folders. Two folders will have ribbon decks to support the commercial print business while the other two have upper formers for newspapers.
Tom Reardon Vice President Sales imPRESSions stated “We are honored to have been selected as the partner and supplier for this customer. Their search for a press has been extensive. They have looked at many options and suppliers in recent years. We were able to provide a rebuilt press solution at an attractive value that meets their needs. Our extensive experience and track record with very similar projects over the recent years positions us perfectly for this project. We have designed a flexible system that will allow them to produce a wide array of products. We are expediting the rebuilding process and the installation to meet our customer’s requirements.”
Don Pallotto, Senior Vice President of Sales for imPRESSions stated “When Tom Reardon and I joined imPRESSions last year our goal was to grow imPRESSions business in the United States, specifically the eastern region, to complement imPRESSions’ already strong presence in the western US, Canada, Latin America, and SE Asia. This order, in addition to the several others that we have secured recently in the US, is a big stride toward accomplishing our goal.”
