New England specialty printer Bradford & Bigelow has purchased a Lithoman 48-page four-colour press for its 50,000-square-foot pressroom addition at its Newburyport, Mass., plant location.

“We are delighted to partner with manroland Goss. Very simply, the Lithoman technology with its advanced colour and quality control, automation, minimal waste, and excellent makeready times makes 70 percent of the existing presses in our operation obsolete,” says Bradford & Bigelow President John Galligan. “This capabilities and productivity of this press will do the work of the four-colour web, sheetfed, and part of the digital inkjet presses we already have in our existing pressroom, but with increased quality and significant reduction in waste.”

The Lithoman press, one of several new machines planned for the updated facility in the future, includes a full portfolio of automated inline controls, including InlineRegistration Control, InlineCutoff Control Dynamic, and InlineDensity Control (IDCm). The press also includes the DynaChange imprint function, which uses only the blanket cylinders of engaged printing units, allowing for increased production speed, and a fully automated printing plate changing device (APL). Remote diagnostics systems will allow technicians from manroland Goss to diagnose any variables to the printing process, helping to ensure maximum uptime.
