The Chesapeake Branded Packaging division at East Kilbride, UK, has installed the world’s longest Heidelberg B1 press – a Speedmaster XL 106 perfector with 17 print units and an in-line coldfoiling option.

Tim Whitfield, vice-president of Chesapeake Branded Packaging, says: "East Kilbride supplies some of the world’s most prestigious brands and many of the packs it produces demand an ultra-high quality finish and outstanding shelf appeal.

"This significant investment will bring a number of processes inline providing greater quality control.

"We will be able to provide multiple colour applications, foiling and an even greater range of matt, gloss and pearlescent finishes, including metallics, spot and solid applications."

The new press is equipped with coating units both before and after printing and perfecting that will allow Chesapeake East Kilbride to provide customers with a range of finishes and effects both inside and outside the carton.
