LAVAL, QUEBEC – June 20, 2019 - KBR Graphics, the exclusive distributor of RMGT offset presses in Canada, proudly announces that it has installed a new RMGT 9 series 6 color LED-UV 8-up press at Imprimerie Maxime. Located in the heart of Montreal, Imprimerie Maxime has seen changes and has grown over the past 30 years to become an established and valued full-service shop. Their equipment lineup includes a complete prepress division, offset, digital and large format printing presses, as well a wide range of print finishing solutions for lamination, perforation, numbering, folding, scoring, stitching and more. In addition, Imprimerie Maxime’s Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification is a testament to their commitment towards strict environmental and social standards.
Imprimerie Maxime’s continuous pursuit to improve performance, boost client offerings while reducing overall costs, lead them to invest in the 25’’ x 37’’ RMGT 9 series press, which was installed in December 2018. Forward-thinking, André Paiement, President of Imprimerie Maxime and his team set out to find ways to optimize their offset printing operation in order to be able to increase performance. With the installation of their new RMGT 9 series press, they are now able to triple their output. Mr. Paiement stated that “with LED technology and the multiple automation capabilities built-into the RMGT 9 press, it is finally possible to produce jobs rapidly. It exceeds all of our requirements and expectations in terms of productivity and reliability.”
The new RMGT 9 series press replaced Imprimerie Maxime’s older 20.5” X 29” press and now allows them to produce a larger 8-up, 16-page signature print forms, while improving print quality through LED-UV curing and Insta.Color makeready technology. Since they offer customers both offset and digital printing, they understand that the key to higher productivity for diverse short-run printing is shorter make-ready times. Six months following the installation of their RMGT 9 series press, they are running higher quality jobs quicker and more efficiently. They have seen a significant boost in productivity, flexibility and quality. Since set-ups are much quicker, switching from job to job is a cinch. “We have even started to move some of our digital work back to offset, and our clients are very pleased,” added Mr. Paiement.
