Graphco to feature “Refresh Your Press” at IPMA Conference

Graphco, the Midwest Distributor for RMGT and a leading provider of offset, digital and print finishing solutions, will feature the theme “Refresh Your Press” at the IPMA 2019 Conference held in Louisville, KY on June 2-6, 2019. This annual conference of the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) is an ideal event to showcase the efficiencies that offset printing bring to in-house printing and mailing professionals.


“In-plant printers are following a national trend, observed among commercial printers, to bring short run jobs back to their offset operations,” states Chris Manley, President of Graphco. “We have had in-plants replace aging sheetfed offset presses with RMGT offset presses equipped with LED-UV curing. Economics are driving the decision for in-plants to pull back jobs traditionally sent to digital production and move them back to offset. As RMGT likes to say, in-plants are finding that they get ‘offset quality at digital quantities’, and Graphco will be focusing on this at the IPMA show this year.”
2019 marks the 11thanniversary of LED-UV curing technology for sheet-fed offset printing (first shown at DRUPA 2008) and RMGT was the first manufacturer to offer fully integrated LED-UV curing systems as a factory installed option. With over 20 new LED-UV equipped RMGT presses installed throughout the Midwest and 27 LED-UV lamps total, Graphco’s Refresh Your Press program will now bring the advantages of LED-UV curing to even more customers. One unique feature of this program is a direct upgrade stream for customers who add LED-UV to their existing press and then later purchase a new RMGT offset press.
Beginning in 2018 Graphco and GEW (EC) Limited entered into an exclusive distribution agreement and Graphco is now offering GEW’s LED-UV curing systems on many of their new RMGT press installations. GEW LED-UV curing systems are also available on legacy Ryobi offset presses as well as other brands of sheet-fed offset presses. “Our partnership with Graphco is off to a great start with 6 GEW LED-UV equipped presses recently installed,” states Gary Doman, International Sales Manager for GEW. “The Graphco team has built a great brain trust of LED-UV experience with so many installations in so many market segments, such as in-plants.”
Join Graphco at the 2019 IPMA Conference to learn more about LED-UV technology, how RMGT presses are revolutionizing the offset print world, and hear more customer success stories. More information on this event can be found at https://ipma.org/events/ipma-2019-be-a-frontrunner-conference.
