Sheetfed Offset Presses
Sheetfed offset printing presses are used to print on individual sheets of paper, cardboard, etc., that are fed into the press one at a time. Sheetfed presses are commonly used for low quantity printing, such as brochures, short-run magazines, business forms, and general commercial printing. Because sheetfed offset presses print on individual sheets, a wide range of sheet and format sizes can be run through the same press.
- Can print from 4,000 to 18,000 sheets per hour or more.
- Depending on model, can print on sheets up to 49” x 74” or larger.
- Capable of producing high-quality printed products on a variety of light- to heavy-weight stocks.
- Mechanical registration ensures that imagery is produced in the same position on each sheet that runs through the press.
- Waste sheets can be used for make-ready, allowing for lower cost preparation and limiting paper waste.
Web Offset Presses
Web or webfed offset printing presses are used to print on long rolls of paper that are fed continuously into the press. Newspapers, magazines, catalogs, and books are all typically printed using web offset presses. “Cold” and “heatset” webfed presses are available, and vary by the methods through which their inks dry. Cold web offset printing dries through ink absorption into the paper, and is typically used for lower quality printing. Heatset webfed printing utilizes drying lamps or heaters to set the inks; they are typically used for printing on coated or glossy paper.
- Can print at speeds up to 3,000 feet per minute, or 20,000 cut-offs per hour.
- Depending on model, can include capabilities to cut, perforate, and fold printed products inline.
- Depending on model, can print on paper from 11” to 56” wide or larger.
- The most efficient and most cost effective machines for high volume commercial printing.
Digital Offset Presses
Digital offset printing presses are ideal for high quality, full-color print jobs in lower quantities, but also perform well for high volume printing. Because they print from digital files, these printing presses allow for easy design changes with minimal downtime. Many digital offset printing presses feature extensive automation for faster, more efficient production, with time, labor, and cost savings without compromising quality.
- Depending on model, can print up to 10,000 sheets per hour or more.
- Typically have smaller footprints than other offset printing presses.
- Capable of producing rich, vibrant colors and crisp lines.
- Can print on substrates of widely varying thicknesses with equal precision.
