Investment in Production Hub
The Group will be exchanging a total of three old Komori printing presses, comprising 16 print units, with a new Komori 8 unit B1 perfector. The new press benefits from hybrid-UV technology which removes the need for any drying time, currently as long as 24 hours. This will facilitate shorter production times and reduce the potential for quality defects, through real-time inline colour management and defect-identifying cameras.
As there has been a trend towards shorter print run lengths, speed of changeover has become one of the main drivers of productivity. Printing press technology has evolved significantly in recent years and the new press is able to process more print runs per hour than the three legacy presses combined.
We also intend to upgrade associated computer-to-plate pre-press systems in conjunction with installing the new press.
Further benefits of the upgrade are expected to include: waste paper reduction, significantly lower power usage and labour savings. Wherever possible, we will redeploy people to other roles.
The investment of approximately
The new press is expected to be operational during Spring 2019.
