In-line Print Enhancement Equipment

Design and build project undertaken for a large US based packaging printer for in-line print enhancement on a lithographic printing press. Application units were designed to apply cold foil on the second print unit and for “Cast & Cure” finish to be applied on the last coating unit of a Komori printing press. This entailed design of the application units themselves and the modifications necessary to the printing press to allow a smooth foil/film path through the print/coating unit Due to the special design of the press bespoke mountings were designed to allow both to combine. The design, manufacturer, installation, commissioning and training were all conducted by current Cheadle Project staff.

Similar projects have been completed on manroland, Heidelberg, KBA and Mitsubishi printing presses of differing sizes.
