Positive has kicked off the first quarter of 2019 by investing in new machinery, including a Ricoh Pro C9210 Digital Printing Press, a Horizon SPF/FC-200L A4 Landscape Booklet Maker 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 company is also currently looking into investing in printing technology such as papercut software to streamline the printing capabilities of its office.
The capabilities of the Ricoh Pro C9210 include taking a banner size of 1,030mm in duplex and 1,260mm in simplex on substrates up to 450gsm. It can print 135 A4 pages per minute and an automatic inline calibration system maintains colour consistency and stability.
Mike Sullivan, Production Director 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 wastage”.
Positive has also invested in a Horizon SPF/FC-200L A4 Landscape Booklet Maker, to add to their portfolio of finishing kit, and upgraded their pre-press software to a 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 employs 23 members of staff, has a turnover of £2m and operates from a 25,000sq. ft 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.
