Adams Litho Offers Complete In-House Commercial and Packaging Solutions with Heidelberg TechnologyAugust 8, 2019
Over the last 10 years, Adams Litho’s percentage of sales in packaging has been skyrocketing. With expectations that packaging sales will continue to increase in the next several years, Adams Litho, located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, invested in several Heidelberg machines — a Speedmaster CD 102-6+L, a Diana Easy 115, a Easymatrix 106 CS, and Versafire EP in order to offer their customers the highest quality packages for any run length.
According to Wyatt Hogue, President of Adams Litho, “Packaging is growing – it’s not going away. You go into any store, and it’s all about which package stands out on the shelf. It’s crucial to our company that we are able to provide what is needed to produce unique and higher end packages to our customers.”
Flexible Press for Large Variety of Substrates
In order to print the highest quality packages for their customers, Adams Litho chose the best-selling 6-color Speedmaster CD 102 with UV capabilities — their third CD press — for its flexible processing of a large variety of jobs and materials.
“The CDs have always been a great fit for us,” said Hogue. “Currently, our newest CD 102 is sitting next to our 2008 Speedmaster CD 102-6+L; however, our new press has UV capabilities, which allows us to print on uncoated paper and different non-porous substrates. We run UV 100% of the time, 24 hours a day, five days a weeks, and our operators have loved running it.”
Running at speeds up to 15,000 sheets an hour, the Speedmaster CD 102 is the world’s most popular range of machines in the 70×100 cm format. Delivering up to 40 million impressions per year, the easy-to-use CD 102 offers short makeready times and an attractive price/performance ratio — maximizing the profit potential of its output.
