Greater productivity for Acorn with new Lithoman
Acorn Web Offset, based in Normanton, mainly produces magazines, brochures and catalogues and is a specialist in A4 and A5 printing.
The company has partnered with manroland Goss web systems for over 20 years. Its latest investment is a new Lithoman – its third manroland Goss press – which will replace one of two existing Rotoman 16 page commercial presses.
Equipped with a high automation package, the new press offers great productivity and flexibility for commercial production at highest quality and with lowest waste rates.
The Lithoman, with four printing units and an automatically adjustable folder, will be equipped with the highest level of automation features from manroland Goss web systems containing all in line control systems for cut off, dynamic cut off, colour and ink density. This guarantees shortest make ready and changeover times and, at the same time, lowest waste rates and highest quality for start up, as well as for reel changes and blanket washing. The automation package is complemented by QuickStart and QuickStopp features – particularly important for frequent job changes.
