Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, Ga. – J.S. McCarthy of Augusta, Maine replaced an older press from a different manufacturer with the Speedmaster XL 106-4+LYY-P-4+L from Heidelberg to double its productivity. The new press is equipped with a long list of innovations including “Push to Stop” technology, Prinect Pressroom Manager, Prinect Inpress Control 2, and UV, which provide the autonomous production needed to help improve makeready times while reducing waste.

Arming Operators with Cutting Edge Technology
With the press fully installed and a week into production, J.S. McCarthy is eager to expand its business and increase capacity with its new Speedmaster XL 106-4+LYY-P-4+L. The XL 106 LPL (Print, Coat, Perfect, Print, Coat) configuration takes full printed sheets with aqueous and/or UV coating (on both sides) straight from the press delivery into bindery.

Equipped with the latest “Push to Stop” technology, the Speedmaster’s jobs are autonomously changed over without operator intervention and will continue to print until the operator interrupts it. This software system reduces the number of operating steps during a job change and enables all operators to achieve uniform results.

“With a crew of operators who have worked on various types of presses over the years, the Inpress and ‘Push to Stop’ technologies were major selling features,” said Jon Tardiff, President of J.S. McCarthy. “Arming our operators with this type of cutting-edge technology is what we need to do in order to remain the low-cost producer in this competitive marketplace and continue to produce the top-quality work that J.S. McCarthy is known for.”
