Small- and Medium-format Sheetfed Presses — Automated Workhors

The 19-roller inking train reacts rapidly to ink adjustments and provides stability of ink feed. With double-diameter impression and transfer cylinders for superior registration accuracy with a minimum of gripper changes, the Polly 74 is available in two-, four- and five-color configurations.

The press has a range of features for extremely fast makeready. The Polly control console, with open architecture, enables the communication and presetting of press parameters from any prepress system conforming to the CIP3 or CIP4 standard. As more printers implement a digital prepress workflow, the Polly 74 gives the capability to transfer specific job data, such as ink key presets, directly from a digital file generated by the prepress system. This capability further speeds the makeready process, bringing the job to color faster and with substantially reduced waste.

Envelope Production

Halm Industries has a solution to help guarantee that your customer’s mailing gets read and not thrown in the garbage—putting a four-color message on the envelope. The Halm EM5000 is its latest offering for this niche. At 30,000 envelopes per hour, it is one of the fastest color perfector presses available.

Aside from its speed, the machine boasts an integrated UV dryer and perfector. These features, along with a microprocessor motor control that eliminates electro-mechanical problems, enhances versatility and delivers the highest inherent reliability from job to job.

Sakurai USA focuses on manufacturing machines for the half-size and smaller markets, specializing in providing printers with highly automated, heavy-duty machines.

Its 58 Series presses run at 15,000 iph and have a maximum sheet size of 181⁄8 x 223⁄4˝. This press provides the benefits of four-up vs. two-up. It can print 60,000 8.5 x 11˝ sheets in one hour compared to only 30,000 on a similarly priced 14×20˝ press. This machine has been Sakurai’s best-selling model because of its productivity differences and its ease to cost-justify for both short or long runs.
