Cooper Printing Installs Mitsubishi Sheetfed Press
“The press wash-up uses considerably less cleaning materials,” he said. “The Harris & Bruno coating unit lays down a more even coat, so we have reduced the amount of coating needed for jobs. The Harris & Bruno washes up automatically and requires only about 10 minutes a week of attention.”
The Delta dampening system helps reduce makeready times while improving print quality on the finished projects, according to Cooper.
“The Delta dampener provides a better ink-water balance and control,” he explained. “It removes paper lint and prevents hickeys. We print smoother, denser solids.”
Additionally, the temperature-controlled ink oscillating rollers maintain proper temperature for improved ink distribution on the plate.
“The chiller unit provides a constant temperature of water circulating through the oscillator rollers,” Cooper said. “The result is consistent print quality. This unit requires a new filter once a year, and that’s it as far as maintenance.”
