  • Monday, September 11, 2017
When it arrived on Valentine’s Day it could almost have been love at first sight. Like all love interests, however, Swallowmax’s new Komori Lithrone G29 H-UV came with expectations and pressures, moments of torrid drama and the occasional foible to try even the most attentive of press minders.

Me & my: Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106 LE-UV

When Superior Creative Services installed a Muller Martini Concepta 8 web offset press to handle its growing document business, this led it to also replace its 10-year-old sheetfed Komori press with the latest technology in the form of a B1-format Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106.

Me & my: Ryobi 924 LED-UV

There was a definite moment at Ipex last year that swung it for Mike Greene. The ABC Print Group managing director was looking at stepping up formats from B3 to B2 when he rolled up at the show and got talking about LED-UV drying technology with the guys on the Ryobi stand.

Me & my: Kodak NexPress SX3300

Sometimes the relationship between the sales and production sides of a business can be fraught due to conflicting priorities and many a mutual misunderstanding about exactly what the other does, how and why.

Me & my: KBA Rapida 106

Press installs come, for many companies, off the back of feeling their existing kit, while doing all right, is not quite competing anymore on the productivity and automation fronts. Most self-respecting print firm owners will start to get a niggling sense that their makereadies, for example, are taking a little longer than is ideal.

Me & my: Komori Enthrone E29

The old machine is in India and "that's where it will stay", quips Ray Thistleton, looking at his new press in south London, which is where it will stay.

Me and My... KBA Rapida 75

Tried & tested: KBA Rapida 75

  • Thursday, September 23, 2010
Unveiled at Drupa 2008, the Rapida was the first B2 press that used performance features and innovations found on the manufacturer's larger presses. The 75 essentially evolved out of the predecessor series, the Performa 74 and the Rapida 74, and according to Malcolm Riddle, senior technical sales support manager at KBA, it incorporated the best of both of them.

I swear by my: Ryobi 755 WD

We tend to invest in technology rather than large numbers of people. Ryobi wasn't on my initial list of likely press manufacturers, but the B2-plus 755 caught my eye.

Star product: Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105-P

Heidelberg has revealed a perfecting version of its popular Speedmaster XL 105, which it claimed will pair up with the SM 102-P to become the two most productive B1 sheetfed perfecting solutions available.

MAN Roland 200

The Roland 200 came to the market at the beginning of the 1990s. Replacing the Roland Favorit, the 200 was faster and boasted far superior levels of automation, as well as a new highly developed feeder.

Mitsubishi 3 series

According to Mitsubishi Lithographic Presses UK managing director Thomas Doliwa, when the B1 Mitsubishi 3 series was first launched, comparing it to other machines at the time was like comparing "a Toyota to a Vauxhall". The most popular press manufacturer in Japan did not install its first press - the 3E sheetfed machine - in the UK until 1987.

Heidelberg CD 74-5LX UV

The eponymous managing director of Maurice Payne Colourprint believes his Speedmaster will open new doors

MAN Roland Ultima 700

Luxury packaging is a buoyant market. Largely untouched by the ravages of commoditisation that have such a stranglehold in the commercial sector, packaging printers have protected their margins effectively against falling run lengths and shorter turnaround times by adding more and more value to the average carton or pack. And now MAN Roland is giving the packaging printer even more firepower with the Roland Ultima 700, a new press aimed at completing all the various coating, printing and foiling jobs on a standard carton in a single, and therefore even more profitable, pass.
