Heronswood Press takes on new RMGT 924 LED

Tunbridge Wells-based Heronswood Press has invested in a new RMGT 924 LED press to replace its two existing B2 format presses.

Supplied through an MPL partner company and installed by MPL, the official UK distributor for RMGT, the new machine is now in place at the company’s printing facility.

Nigel Room, managing director of Heronswood Press, says that the press offers a number of major advantages to the business.

“The A1 format will allow us to print eight A4 pages to view, meaning that we will be able to print twice as much work that we could on the B2 format,” he says.

“Add the LED instant drying producing dry-to-the-touch sheets, and the pile can be turned immediately ready for instant back-up – providing for overall faster production than two B2 presses.

We now have space to consider expanding other areas of our business

“And add to that the reputation of ultra-reliability for RMGT – we’ve spoken to users who have had zero downtime due to machine failure in two years – and we have the ideal single press configuration.”

Room says the LED-UV drying system also means that the company can compete on a level playing field with the turnaround times of digital.

“The unusual sheet size, the high print quality, the reliability, and space requirements of the machine – it takes up no more room than one of our outgoing B2 presses – all made it a straightforward choice,” he says.

“We now have space to consider expanding other areas of our business.”
