UV Printing — Horse of a Different Color
UV printing has been so successful for Lake County Press, a second Heidelberg UV press will be installed in 2008.
Color Ink, Sussex, WI, installed its second UV-equipped press in May, a six-color, 40˝ Komori LS40 with in-line UV and aqueous coating. Company President Tom Murel contends that having UV capability gives Color Ink national recognition. “It’s not just another 40˝ press.”
