Positive Images UK has kicked off the first quarter of 2019 by investing in new machinery, including a Ricoh Pro C9210, a Horizon SPF/FC-200L A4 landscape bookletmaker and a Heidelberg Suprasetter A74 platesetter.
The C9210 is part of Ricoh’s new flagship series of high volume, high performance digital printers and will run alongside Positive’s existing HP Indigo digital technology.
The capabilities of the Ricoh Pro C9210 include taking a banner size of 1030 mm in duplex and 1260 mm in simplex on substrates up to 450 g/m2. It can print 135 A4 pages per minute and an automatic in line calibration system maintains colour consistency and stability.
Mike Sullivan, production director, with the Ricoh Pro C9210.
Mike Sullivan, production director at Positive Images, said: ‘Our new Ricoh Pro C9210 will make short runs of A4 landscape brochures much more cost effective and there will be a lot less material waste.’
Positive has also invested in a Horizon SPF/FC-200L A4 to add to its portfolio of finishing kit and upgraded its pre-press software to Heidelberg’s Prinect system.
Danny Sullivan, managing director, said: ‘As a company we have always moved with the times and invested in new and leading technology.’
Positive provides the full range of design, print, direct mail and multichannel marketing solutions. The family owned company operates from a Surrey factory as well as a London sales office.
Alongside its new Ricoh kit, Positive operates HP Indigo digital presses, Heidelberg litho technology, Roland wide format printers as well as a wide array of direct mail and finishing equipment and machinery.
