Just three months after the delivery of the Stahlfolder SSP 82 folder which can score slit and perforate inline, Irish trade printer Walsh Colour Print has taken delivery of a Stahlfolder BH 56. This will supplement the work of a Stahlfolder TH 82-P that was installed two years ago, mopping up shorter run and smaller format jobs.
Managing director Tony Walsh says: “We are replacing an older 20 year old Stahlfolder. When you have the best make of folders in the business why change? The BH 56 will supplement the work of our very successful TH 82-P and we particularly like its ability to cross-fold and its quick makeready.”
Walsh Colour Print is based in Castleisland, County Kerry, Ireland and operates a 24-hour service to its customers
The new folder will be delivered to the Castleisland, County Kerry, plant this month and will go straight into operation, run by existing folding operators. It will run around the clock.
“We have had very good advice and support from Heidelberg and we are buying this after great success with the TH82-P which has proved to be a no fuss folder which operates in the background doing its job,” says Mr Walsh.
“Business slowed after Brexit but it has picked up again and is good at the moment. It is the right time for us to invest again.”
