New Speedmaster CD 74 Makes Impressive U.S. Debut at Colorado Print Shop
Colorado Printing Company in Grand Junction, Colorado is the first U.S. print shop to install a Speedmaster CD 74-4+LY-P-4+LX, which prints four over four and applies aqueous coating on both sides of the sheet in a single pass. Owner Mike Antonucci said the all-Heidelberg shop jumped on the opportunity to buy the new CD 74 as soon as the technology was available. The shop traded in two older presses (a 4-color and a 5-color) for the new 8-color CD 74, which does the job of both presses. Antonucci said the dedicated coating units apply a sufficiently thick film of coating, enabling even some gloss applications at higher production speeds. He added that the shop was so excited about the new press and its potential for the future that it made the purchase without even seeing it in-person. Instead, the shop tested the press by sending a file to Heidelberg, Germany, where it was printed on a CD 74 with similar configuration and mailed back to Grand Junction. Based on the impressive results and a long-standing relationship with Heidelberg, Colorado Printing made the purchase. Antonucci said Heidelberg has been with the company during every phase of its growth. And grown it has. Colorado Printing recently moved into a 150,000 sq. ft. space, which accommodates two other recent purchases: an 8-color Speedmaster SM 102 with perfector and a 10-color Speedmaster SM 102 perfector. Founded in 1947, the shop employs 120 people who serve various graphic art and manufacturing firms in the Rocky Mountain region.
