Ian and Paul Jones of Welshpool Printing Group with their Komori LS 829P supplied by West Park Graphic Equipment and fitted with AMS LED UV Drying

Welshpool Printing Group have undertaken an overhaul of their printroom, which has involved replacing a four-colour, Komori Lithrone,SRA2 press and a four-colour, Komori Spica, B2 perfecting press, with an eight-colour, Komori Lithrone LS 829P perfector press to run alongside their existing conventional, five-colour Komori Lithrone.

The plan was to further improve productivity by adding Low-energy UV drying to the press to give them instant drying on both sides of the sheet.

After the installation of the press by West Park Graphic Equipment, the press was left to 'bed-in' as the operators got used to running the new machine and then the LED UV Drying was fitted.  One lamp positioned in the interdeck after the first four units and one in the swan neck of the delivery.

The company now runs silk, gloss, offset and plastics on the machine, producing everything from magazines to stationary for its descerning customers.
