RM Machinery Inc. announced that Johnson Litho Graphics has purchased a six-color Mitsubishi 3000S sheetfed press to help make the Midwestern commercial printer an even more formidable competitor in today’s print market.
The 28 x 40-inch press with tower coater and delivery extension will join the press lineup at Johnson Litho’s manufacturing plant in Eau Claire, Wis., where it will take its place along with a heatset web and a variety of sheetfed presses.
The Diamond 3000S features high-performance preset systems, sophisticated remote-controlled adjustments and closed-loop color control. SimulChanger, Mitsubishi’s advanced, automated plate changing system, accurately changes all six printing plates on the press in a little more than one minute.
“The 3000S enables high-end, high-quality commercial printing applications,” said Lance Papke, president. “The ability to increase the level of service we can give while simultaneously reducing the cost of production will afford our clients greater opportunities for achieving their communication objectives.”
