Chesapeake Installs New Four-Color Press
Paperboard packaging supplier Chesapeake Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Packaging has installed a new Alprinta 52 web offset press at its Hicksville, NY, facility. The four–color press, which can run materials up to 20.5 in. wide and 40 in. long, will be used to print patient-information leaflets for the healthcare market. It also features UV curing and a non-stop rewinding unit for re-insertion, giving Chesapeake the capacities to run up to 8 colors.
This new press follows Chesapeake's investment in a MV-2011 Vijuk folder for large format inserts, which was installed at the same site at the end of 2011.
Christopher Cassidy, Chesapeake VP Sales & Marketing – North America, stated in a press release: "The installation of this latest technology at our Hicksville facility is a further step in the unmatched investment program that we have undertaken over the past two years. Chesapeake's continued investment in next-generation production equipment such as the Alprinta 52 web offset press ensures that we will maintain and strengthen the service levels we deliver to our customers. The investment will increase our capacity and position the operation to benefit from further growth."
