Sunday® 2000 8 Unit Press 22.25" Cutoff x 38" Width
Press sale

Tidewater Direct Purchases 8 Unit Heidelberg Sunday® 2000 Printing Press from Graphic Innovators. Direct mail printer increases capacity with high quality web offset press.

The press is currently configured as one press capable of running 2 webs into a folder. Tidewater Direct will repurpose this equipment and intends to separate the press into two independent 4 unit presses that deliver into sheeters. In this direction, it will be the ideal complement to Tidewater Direct's business model of providing high quality direct mail component parts to direct mail contractors across the United States. Most specifically, this press will propel Tidewater to the forefront of the high quality, high color brochure market. Tidewater prides itself on high quality direct mail printing, including continuous forms printing, generic direct mail inserts, and pharmaceutical printing.

The Sunday® press, equipped closed loop color control and automatic registration control, is rated at speeds of up to 2400 feet per minute which is a significant increase in productivity as compared to the Centreville plant's current equipment lineup. Furthermore, the extended dryers feature internal VOC destruction, which align with Tidewater's environmental policy of having as minimal impact as possible. The press is designed with 22.25"cylinders, which is optimal for a variety of formats and layouts. The press width of 38" provides for a significant throughput.
