Walsh to cut chemistry bill by 60 percent

Walsh Colour Print, having ordered three Komori Lithrones after this year’s Drupa, has chosen Technotrans peripherals to maximise control as it switches to H-UV technology.

Walsh Colour Print has invested in Technotrans peripherals such as the dampening solution filtration, beta.f

The first press the company got up and running, a B1-plus four-over-four Lithrone GX-840RP, has been equipped with Technotrans’ temperature control (beta.c), water treatment (alpha.r10), and dampening solution filtration (beta.f).

“We have used Technotrans from day one and have always found the equipment reliable,” says managing director, Tony Walsh.

He continues: “With the move to H-UV the process control must be spot on so, although we have no issues with our water, we want to ensure the hardness and pH is exactly right.

“Filtration of the dampening will help in this respect, too, but the primary reason behind this purchase is the saving in chemistry costs. We believe we will cut our chemistry bill by 60% with the beta.f.”

While Walsh Colour Print has used Technotrans’ temperature control technology from the start, it is the company’s first installation of water treatment and filtration systems.

A Lithrone GL 540 plus coater arrived in November and a B2 format GL 529 plus coater will arrive next year, both to feature Technotrans peripherals also.
