Important Features of this Press:
:: Cut-off Savings
22" vs. 22.75" is 3 .3% percent savings on whatever web width you are running. Depending on exact image size, a tabloid product may have to narrow the columns slightly. Often extra image area can be found in page gutters.
:: Jardis Zero-Speed Splicers
Compared to manual integrated roll stands, running waste savings is around 3.5% depending on basis weight you are running and how many copies you waste on pull up after roll change. There is probably another 1% or so in eliminating butt roll handling and re-winding.
:: Rudder lnfeeds
On process color work, the Rudder lnfeeds keep the web tension constant, which dramatically helps register quality and therefore eliminates waste of at least another 1% to 2%.
:: CC1 Automatic Registration System
Each tower has motorized sidelay and circumferential registration. With the use of cameras mounted at the top, full process color can be registered automatically thereby providing a "closed loop" system. This system will reduce the man power needed to operate the six tower press as well as save up to 3% on paper waste.
:: EPG Automatic Inking System
With automatic ink adjusting from the console with pre-set ink controls, this also will reduce manpower and reduce waste. The system is able to "learn" certain print jobs to more accurately pre-set ink each time.
:: Automatic Ink Levellers
These eliminate the need for press operators to fill the ink fountains. On a tower press, it is a great labour saving device.
