Graphic Packaging International Taps Mitsubishi Press for N.J. Plant
Graphic Packaging International recently purchased an eight-color Mitsubishi Diamond V3000LX equipped for applying ultraviolet (UV) coatings and targeted the highly automated press for its consumer products division in Piscataway, N.J.
"We purchased the new press to give us some more print capacity along with offering our customers a more competitive price structure," said Joe Mahoney, plant manager. "The eight-color configuration also will give designers more creative options than before."
The Diamond V3000LX is the fourth Mitsubishi press at the Piscataway location and one of three featuring fully interdecked UV systems. The existing Mitsubishi presses on the pressroom floor are all six-color, 40-inch models. Only one of the presses includes an aqueous coater.
"We invest in UV capabilities because most of the work we do is high-end cosmetic packaging with a high degree of value-added," Mahoney explained. "We emphasize flood and spot UV coatings, stamping and embossing."
The Diamond V3000LX accommodates a maximum sheet of 29 1/2 x 41 11/32 inches and handles up to 40-point board.
