CHELSEA, Michigan and MADISON, Wisconsin , July 21, 2022 (press release) –

The installation of new presses at two of Sheridan’s book printing locations this summer are the latest in a series of continued equipment investments made by parent company CJK Group.

Sheridan’s Chelsea, MI facility installed a new Heidelberg XL106-8 P press which began producing live work in June. With speeds up to 18,000 impressions per hour, this press features 8 units that print 4-color over 4-color in a single pass along with auto-color scanning and ink control to improve color consistency throughout the print run. Notably, the Prinect Workflow technology used with this press enables it to move automatically from job to job – changing plates and washing blankets on the fly, which significantly shortens make-ready times and increases productivity.

An increase in productivity and color consistency was also brought to Sheridan’s Wisconsin facility with the July arrival of a HP Indigo 12000 digital press. The high throughput of the Indigo press for both single-and double-sided printing will provide needed capacity for quick turnarounds for short-run perfect bind and mechanical bind customers served by Sheridan Wisconsin.

“The ability to increase productivity while minimizing touchpoints and equipment setup – at a time when capacity and labor are tight across the industry – is more important now than ever,” comments Paul Loy, Vice President of Operations at Sheridan. “The installation of this new equipment allows us to get books into our customers hands quicker, while ensuring the highest quality product.”
