Century Packaging Inc. (East Brunswick, NJ) has installed a new, UV capable Mitsubishi Diamond 3000LX sheetfed press. The six-color, 40” press shares the pressroom with an identical Mitsubishi press that has been in operation since 2009.
Century Packaging installed the new Diamond 3000LX to augment its packaging printing capacity. The Diamond 3000LX can handle a wide range of substrates including paper, packaging board, and plastic in thicknesses ranging from 0.0016” to 0.040”.
The press is equipped with SimulChanger, an automated plate-changing system that can replace all six plates simultaneously in just over one minute. Interdeck and end-of-press UV curing units enable curing at higher production speeds. The Grafix Hi-Cure system features three interdeck UV modules and three UV lamps at the back end of the press.
Established in 1986, Century Packaging caters to cosmetics, pharmaceutical, food, and automotive products companies, among others. Besides its Mitsubishi presses, the equipment list includes diecutters, folder/gluers, and a CAD packaging design system.
