Southwest Offset Printing Buys Equipment
Gardena, Calif.-based Southwest Offset Printing recently purchased its third Muller Martini SLS3000 inserting line. The company opted to buy this piece of equipment due to its speed of up to 32,000 cycles per hour. It also assures quick make-readys and proven net throughputs that can handle extraordinarily tight windows.
The Muller Martini SLS3000 inserting system features a linear design that provides flexible processing of many different types of products. The feeders allow scaleable settings, are simple to operate and can be adjusted while the machine is running. Due to a unique pocket design and high feeder reliability, light products with only a few pages can be produced as easily as bulky weekend editions that include up to 1,200 tabloid pages.
Jose Martinez, Packaging Manager at Southwest said the most critical reason to buy this piece is that it clearly positions Southwest Offset as an innovative solution provider for all its customers. “It locks in our future,” said Martinez, “giving us the capacity to service both new and future clients.”
Currently, Southwest Offset Printing, has ten operational press lines which produce approximately 75,000 tons of printed products every year. They include several daily, weekly, and monthly publications, including The New York Times, The London Financial Times, Christian Science Monitor, Daily Racing Form, and The Hollywood Reporter.
