PaperWorks $3-million 10-station folding carton litho press delivers wide-range of print enhancements in single pass

PaperWorks Industries, Inc., based in Bala Cynwyd, PA, says it has invested $US3 million in a sheet-fed lithographic press at its Greensboro, NC, facility which will enable many value-added enhancements in a single pass that traditionally take two- and three-passes to achieve. These include matte and metallic inks, specialty coatings and pigments plus seven-color printing. The capability is driven by the press’s unique configuration.

The press also can run extended color gamut (ECG) color reproduction which means that in addition to the traditional cyan, magenta, yellow and black found on traditional presses, orange, green and violet have been added for a total of seven printing stations, delivering expanded color capability in one pass. The press can produce high-definition images using 400-plus-line screen, compared to traditional litho presses which use a 150-line screen. Higher definition means more vibrant and eye-catching colors.

• PaperWorks has also invested $3 million in a new warehouse for its Wabash, IN paperboard mill. It is to be operational in 1Q18. At 44,500 sq ft, the building’s capacity will be up to 7,000 tons of coated recycled paperboard rolls.
