I know, I know … we entered 2012 6+ weeks ago, but we were so busy running our new press, that we forgot to share all the excitement! It is finally time to give our new press a warm welcome!
It has always been part of the big picture for ChaseVP to have a 6 color press and in late November 2011, the dream finally came true. Early on a Saturday morning in November, 2 semi trucks arrived containing this massive machine. Two weeks later, we heard the new 6 color begin to hum.
Why is the 6 color such a big change? What does it do for our clients?
Some may ask — why get rid of your perfectly fine 4 color Komori for this new monster? Well, in upgrading to our 6 color Komori, we were able to combine two of our existing presses (our 4 color and one of our two color presses), letting us run prints faster and more consistently for the whole shop. This new piece of equipment allows us to apply an aqueous coating inline versus as a separate pass. It also has the capability to run an additional spot or metallic color in the same run. In addition, it runs faster, has more fine adjustment capabilities, and follows along with our Green model. We now run one less piece of equipment, yet we have expanded our capabilities.
This NEW press allows us to compress schedules for clients when needed, to run more complicated projects and helps us maintain the highest quality standards possible.
Let us know if you are as excited as we are to start 2012… feel free to stop by and check our new toy too!!
