Closed-loop colour pays off on UV presses

DCOS Automation has landed another order to add closed-loop colour to a UV-equipped press.

The DGM 440/430 at Stuart Web in Stuart, Florida, will get closed loop ink density/colour registration as part of a project with ImPressions Worldwide.

The upgrade will also see three used DGM 430 four-high towers being added to the press, bringing it to 12 towers and three folders.

The automation project is DCOS' second in North America to add closed-loop automation to a UV-equipped press. DCOS sales director Ron Ehrhardt says that with its higher operational costs, many UV printers are opting for the lower waste that comes with closed-loop automation.

The three towers come from partner ImPressions Worldwide, which acquired them in a liquidation buy-out from The Chronicle Printing Division in Centralia, Washington They have been updated with motorised register, brush dampening and new Perretta ink fountains in order to match the existing equipment.
