COLUMBIA, MO – July 27, 2020 — The University of Missouri Print & Mail Services is ranked by In-plant Impressions as the 10th largest University In-plant in the United States, with more than $7 million annual sales. More than 70% of this revenue comes from offset printing as they produce recruitment, promotional and other outreach materials for their 30,000 students in run lengths and sheet formats that aren’t practical for digital. In order to meet the University’s goal of improving the print quality of their materials, reducing manufacturing costs and eliminating equipment breakdowns, the University of Missouri recently installed a new RMGT 9 Series press to replace their Heidelberg Speedmaster 102 6-Color and MOZP 2-Color presses.
The new fully loaded 940ST-5+CC+LED-UV five-color with coater features RMGT’s Smart Insta.Color makeready technology and Fully Automatic Plate Changing along with GEW’s LeoLED-UV curing for both coated and non-coated work. This suite of automation technology is already impacting the print quality, job costs and reliability of the University’s Print & Mail Services even during the first few months of operation.
