Stephens & George

Press Hall

Stephen & George’s continual re-investment programme is clearly demonstrated within our state-of-the-art Press Hall.

Currently boasting five Heidelberg XL106 presses, (one x 10 colour, three x 8 colour and one x 5 Colour), we have one of Europe’s most modern sheet-fed Press Halls.

Four of our five presses are equipped with the latest CutStar reel-to-sheet technology and all presses are fitted with Prinect Inpress control colour measurement systems enabling us to provide our clients with the highest quality of print.

 

Prinect Pressroom Manager centrally controls every operation in the pressroom and manages the relevant job information and production data. Colour pre-setting data are automatically calculated by Prinect Pressroom Manager, which, at the right point in time, delivers them together with the job data to the integrated presses and colour measurement systems. This automation delivers a significant increase in productivity and more transparency in the pressroom. Make-ready times and waste are considerably reduced, and can be viewed remotely and on site.

 

Our Heidelberg XL106 10 Colour, installed in July 2015, is fitted with Prinect Inpress Control 2 which is the very latest inline control colour measurement system.
We have recently been re-accredited our membership of the Heidelberg Elite Colour Club demonstrating our continued commitment to the print quality control that is required to obtain ISO 12647-2 certification. This annual visit and on-going quality checks, combined with improved knowledge and optimised processes, provides continued assurance of the highest print quality.

With our continued re-investment in technology and highly skilled and motivated staff, we produce in excess of 200 million printed sheets every year including over 41,000 make-readies. Our XL106 8 Colour printed 69 million sheets alone within its first year of production.
