Friesens acquires Timsons Press
February 3, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
Friesens invests in a new Timsons Press, which is scheduled to arrive in 2024.
Friesens presently operates two Timsons presses, a T32 and a T48, which have been workhorses in their single colour product line. Sadly, Timsons ceased production in 2015.
The new press is the first one manufactured by a joint venture between Timsons Engineering and CPI Corporation. The joint venture was specifically created with the intention to build Timsons presses again.
Upgrades to the press include a new oil lubrication system in the print unit that allows for a 16 per cent increase in speed, a new lightweight titanium chopper knife folder, new Baldwin impact Fusion blanket washing system and state-of-the-art drives, motors, and a new operating software.
