DG press – Thallo printing press sold at Open House event
THE NETHERLANDS • DG press Services sold its third Thallo press during its three-day Open House event in June in Hall. A customer signed a letter of intend for the weboffset printing press, which will be shown at next year’s Drupa exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Around 50 to 100 people a day visited the Thallo launch event. A seven color Thallo press was demonstrated printing both shrink sleeves and an inmould label job. During the demonstration DG press showed a new feature, which is the ability to run the web backwards to allow material already in the press to be used for set-up of the next job. This new feature will minimize the expensive set-up waste. Also a five color Thallo press, still under construction but sold to a customer in The Netherlands, was shown. Furthermore DG press presented its new sleeve change unit at a two color Thallo press. The “pro-arm” sleeve changer makes it easier to change a job without having to carry the sleeves.
