The Ipswich-based sheetfed and web house installed a ten-colour B1 Komori GL1040P perfector with Mabeg reel sheeter earlier this year, as part of an investment programme that the company hopes will increase turnover by up to £2m.

The press has been configured with beta.c 220 temperature control and a beta.f dampening filtration unit from Technotrans.

According to Paul Sadler, operations director at the ISO 14001 certified company, one of the critical elements to running alcohol free is ensuring that chemicals are clean and ink tack exactly right.

“Good chemistry is critical to running without alcohol and it needs to be controlled well which it is with the beta.f. The filter life it good too.”

“We like using technotrans because their products are good and their service and support is reliable. We are very pleased to have completed the circle in our move to having an alcohol-free pressroom.”.
