A cut above the rest

A company which describes itself as “regular investors in equipment” couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take advantage of a great upgrade deal.

The Polar 115N Plus is Gomer Press’ latest investment

When it came across a competitive price which would allow it to bring its cutting technology up to the latest specification, Gomer Press made the decision to replace its trusty 2004 model guillotine with a Polar 115N Plus.

Jonathan Lewis, managing director at the book printing firm, comments: “Polar technology is reliable, and we could have continued with the 15-year-old guillotine, but the cost to upgrade proved so good that it made sense to move to the latest generation model.

“We are regular investors in equipment and this guillotine will handle work from our press line-up that includes the Speedmaster XL 106-4-P LE-UV which we installed last year. It’s been brilliant. Having dry sheets means we can handle sheets straight away in the bindery.”

Lewis explains that with its new Speedmaster press there is no colour compromise and the finish has been of the high quality needed for the production of artwork books.

Complementing the firm’s existing fleet, the Polar 115N Plus, which graphic programming and operator assists via an 18.5in colour touch screen monitor, was installed at Gomer Press’ Llandysul site in September.
