Tennessee Company Upgrades Offset Press with LED Curing from GEW

Tennessee Industrial Printing, Inc. (TIPS), Jackson, Tennessee, recently installed the GEW LeoLED-UV Curing System, offered by Graphco, on its Komori LS440P press.

Founded in 1972, TIPS is a mid-size commercial printer servicing industrial, manufacturing and university print segments throughout Tennessee with offset, digital and packaging printing, as well as direct mail services capabilities. With 85% of its revenue in offset printing, the new GEW LeoLED Curing System retrofitted on the Komori has increased capacity on color work by around 50-60% and has reduced spoilage from less starts and stops, according to TIPS owner Wayne Chambers.

TIPS invested in the latest GEW LeoLED-UV MLA (Modular Lamp Array) curing technology, with instant drying of inks that enables immediate finishing, allowing sheets to be perfected, folded, cut or bound right away, reducing work-in-progress and significantly shortening lead-times. LED-UV polymer inks allow successful printing on plastics and other substrates, paving the way at TIPS for new opportunities with additional substrates.
