Superior takes delivery of Drupa Specification Speedmaster 106 LE-UV
Celebrating our 40th Anniversary, and as part of our continued growth and investment strategy we have invested in the UK’s first Drupa specification Speedmaster 106 X 5 LE-UV machine. With our 10-colour perfector being replaced with a mini web 8 colour with in line Inkjet heads which now produces our leaflet work as the majority is personalised. Investing in a sheet fed press to produce the remaining work was the next step.
Point of sale has been a strong growth market for us over the past few years so we needed a press that could print fast turnaround work ranging from stock levels of 70gsm to 1mm thick. We looked at conventional and UV presses from all the leading press manufacturers but with the advantage of a machine that could produce instant drying for fast back up even on uncoated stocks, no spray powder and lower energy bills was just a few reasons of the reasons why we decided on the UV route. The new press will operate 24hrs a day 5 days a week leaving the weekends for overtime.
