Consolidated Press Buys Six-Color UV Press
SEATTLE—Consolidated Press, based here, has installed a six-color, 41˝ Komori Lithrone SX40 (LSX-640) sheetfed press with the new H-UV curing system. A large, privately-held firm, Consolidated Press has been providing commercial printing to a wide range of industries for more than 75 years.
Owners Robert Brown and Gary Stone see the new press and UV technology as an opportunity for the company to expand its capabilities when it comes to special effects and coating techniques. The H-UV’s ability to deliver a bindery-ready sheet will also enable the printer to register faster turnaround times.
“We immediately saw an opportunity to expand into higher value-added markets with this new equipment,” said Stone, CEO of Consolidated Press. “For example, with the publications we produce, we’ll be able to add features to the covers of directories and booklets that will really excite the buyer through the capabilities delivered by the press coupled with the H-UV technology."
