Bema Polytech Orders 2nd Flexo Press from W&H

LINCOLN, RI - Bema Polytech, located in Elmhurst, IL, has ordered a new 52" 8-color MIRAFLEX AM flexographic press from Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corporation. The company purchased its first W&H press, a 10-color PRIMAFLEX, in 2007.

W&H introduced the MIRAFLEX AM to the market in the fall of 2009 as a lower-cost solution for customers who run many small- to mid-sized jobs daily and need a press that yields superior print quality, while offering quick and seamless changeovers.

The line to be installed at Bema Polytech is capable of printing speeds up to 1,200 ft/min. and is equipped with EASY-SET for automatic impression setting, EASY-REG for registration and TURBOCLEAN automatic ink supply and wash-up system that completes ink changes on all decks in less than 5 minutes. The press will be installed in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Glen Galloway, President of Bema Polytech, says, "We're busier than ever and found that we needed to replace an older press and expand our capacity. Most of our jobs are small- to medium-sized and require high print quality. It's critical to get jobs in and out quickly and efficiently, which is why we chose the MIRAFLEX AM. Once it arrives, we'll only have W&H presses running on the floor."
