Falkland Press looking cool with new system

Falkland Press has installed a central cooling system outside of its factory in an effort to minimise the waste heat from ancillary cabinets on its highly specified Speedmaster XL106-6.

The system, courtesy of technotrans and the first of its kind at Falkland, will use water-cooled heat extraction to ensure both the press and its operators are working in a controlled temperature environment. 

The cooling system reduces air movement in the pressroom, which will reduce airborne dust and debris from the press being blown around, in turn giving 
quality and maintenance benefits.

Jon Lancaster, managing director of Falkland Press, says: “We have a modern, high tech factory and with the huge growth in business from our web-to-print site PrintedEasy.com we are handling an increasing amount of work which requires rapid response.

“Every investment we make is to ensure we can provide a quick, quality service to customers and offer a wide range of options including packaging, POS and commercial print. Having waste heat removed from the factory is good for our efficiency. The installation went well.” 

Peter Benton, managing director of technotrans, adds: “As Falkland Press automate more and more processes so that order-to-delivery becomes almost seamless they do not want to be distracted by glitches caused by varying ambient conditions, as well as by dust around the press, unnecessary maintenance or over-heated operators.”
