Kennesaw, Ga. – Last November, Thoro Packaging launched FoldedColor, an online web-to-print platform for designing and ordering custom folding cartons. The efficient workflow paired with the support of a Speedmaster XL 75-8+LYYL Anicolor has provided FoldedColor a unique opportunity in the custom packaging segment.
According to CEO Jan Steiner, the XL 75 Anicolor has significantly increased production speeds across the plant and provided enhanced color consistency and fewer makeready sheets. An upgrade from a CD 74, the Anicolor machine allows for better short run capabilities with the same offset advantages.
The Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor lowers the costs for short run printing by using 90% less waste sheets than traditional offset. With maximum production speeds of up to 15,000 sheets per hour and a short, 1:1 anilox ink train, the Anicolor delivers high print quality along with quick and even inking, all preset via prepress — meaning no ink settings on the press.
“With FoldedColor, we aim to provide the best experience for custom packaging through a streamlined online workflow that makes the designing and printing process easy, convenient and faster than ever, without compromising the quality our customers deserve,” said Patrick Green, Director of Business Development.
