Sharjah-based Al Badr Printing Press has invested in a four-colour Heidelberg GTO 52.

The UAE-based company’s general manager, Jose Thomas said: “The GTO 52-4 is the right press to use when moving into multicolour short-run quality offset printing.
“We are currently involved in the printing of short run colour jobs like brochures, leaflets, newsletters and office technology stationery, among other things.”

The machine, installed in December, has a Prinect Classic Centre for remote control for ink and registers, allowing operations to run more efficiently. This single sheet feeder machine has 16-roller inking unit.

Thomas added: “Because the machine has faster plate clamping and automation, the make-ready time can be reduced, allowing us to meet customer deadlines and print more jobs.” He added: “Purchasing the GTO 52-4 has put us in a very comfortable position.”

In addition, Al Badr has a GTO 52, single colour machine in operation.
