Pyramid Press opts for RMGT 1050LX
The existing RMGT press user, Pyramid Press, has purchased a new RMGT 1050LX six-color, plus coater offset printing press, complete with Smart Assist Printing, RMGT’s automated printing system from RMGT UK distributor, MPL.
The new press will replace the Heidelberg CD102 and RMGT 1050LX will sit alongside a Heidelberg XL75 machine. Installation of the new press is expected to begin in November of this year.
Pyramid prints highly color-critical work for luxury brands in the motoring sector, as well as fabric and interior design work for prestige clients – the printed colour simply has to be 100% correct on that type of work.
Commenting on the selection process for the new machine, Paul McGuigan, Director of Pyramid Press, said, “We studied the mission critical areas of quality, speed, ease of use, supplier service and support, as well as total cost of ownership, along with environmental issues, and on balance the RMGT outscored the other presses in almost every category. As part of our commitment to ISO 14001 and the environment, we examined the power consumption of the presses in particular. We were left in no doubt that the RMGT was the more economical machine to run.”
Smart Assist Printing, RMGT’s automated printing system, provides for pre-flight job programming, allowing multiple jobs to be queued for printing. It then delivers total inline control of colour and print quality with the PQS-D system examining every sheet, comparing it to the pass sheet, automatically making any tweaks that are required, while Auto-Register Adjustment controls sheet alignment. This all means that Pyramid will be able to take advantage of seamless make-ready and can move from job to job, with no need for sample sheets. All pre-sets, blanket washes, roller washes, and pre-inking are managed by the Make-Ready Wizard.
