STUART WEB PRESS INSTALLATION OVER THE FINISH LINE
Stuart Web Inc. has completed it’s 3-phase installation of a DGM 430 pressline at their facility in Florida. The family-owned commercial printer began expansion of their operation with three DGM 430 towers supplied and installed by imPRESSions Worldwide, who worked to come up with the engineered solution for the installation. With virtually no disruption to Stuart Web’s daily production schedule the job was completed first by removing mono units and installing towers and splicers. Secondly the towers were equipped with new Perretta remote ink fountains. Lastly, certain existing automation was moved from towers to towers to make way for new DCOS closed loop density and press controls. The end result is a fully automated press with 12 towers and 3 folders. Four towers are equipment not only with remote inking and closed loop register, but also closed loop density.
“It has been an arduous three-month endeavor, but it is great to realize the breadth of this expansion. I recently went back through the daily reports provided by imPRESSions and can say that they are a top-notch organization that not only provided a great single-source solution, but went the extra mile with their exceptional technical capacities and customer service. We are pleased to have partnered with them,” said Stuart Web’s Vice President, Kevin Hawken.
Jimmy Easterly, imPRESSions VP, was a mainstay throughout the project and stated, “These guys were great to work with! They held us to the highest standards and demanded attention to detail. We love working under these conditions and with customers who have huge expectations. This was a great job and the beginning of a long-term working relationship.”
