The Columbian in Vancouver, WA chooses NELA for Plate Automation

RIVER FALLS, WI—Jan. 11, 2012—NELA is proud to announce that it has been selected as the prepress plate automation and lock supplier by The Columbian of Vancouver, WA.

The Columbian has selected NELA’s VISIO vision register punch bender for inline connection with its new CTP system. NELA’s VISIO is one of the highest quality, most cost effective inline vision register punch and bending solutions available today.

In conjunction with its web width reduction from 50˝ to 44˝ scheduled for late January through Pressline Services, The Columbian also selected NELA Metro lock ups to replace all of its existing locks. The NELA lock up design includes a built-in lead edge, designed to cover and replace the existing lead edge on the Goss Metro press.

Jeff Stalcup, production director of The Columbian, stated, “The Lead Edge NELA lock up eliminated the potential need for costly and time consuming machining of the existing cylinder inserts.”
