    2015 has shown again that the vertical log stackers from RIMA-SYSTEM are the preferred bundlers in the UK market.
    No less than 5 different book and commercial printers installed the reliable machines in different applications.

     

     

    On the book printing side both CPI in Melksham and St. Ives Clays have installed the new ST 4000 DGT log stackers behind their digital web printing machines to build logs of loose and pre-glued complete books. While CPI is running a single setup including an RS 815 trimmer, St. Ives has installed two of the machines at their site in Bungay.
    The ST 4000 DGT is the latest log stacker development from RIMA-SYSTEM turning products from modern digital printing machines into neat logs. The ability to pre-glue complete book blocks makes it ideal to reduce manpower in the bindery where the books can be easily and efficiently processed by using automatic book block feeders.


    In commercial printing three of the biggest players in UK have installed ST 220/420/8000 log stackers:
    At Polestar, two of the machines have been installed behind the new, highly demanding 64p short grain press at their Sheffield site. The operators praise the machines for their easy handling, good accessibility and great performance.
    Meanwhile Wyndeham has moved a used press with a complete Post Press from RIMA-SYSTEM including two ST 8000 to their site in Peterborough, making them one of the biggest users of vertical RIMA-SYSTEM log stackers in the UK.
    The long standing relationship with the York Mailing group, the largest supplier of printed material to the UK retail industry has been further expanded by the installation of an ST 420 with PL 86 palletizer at the York site where it has replaced an existing horizontal machine. The crew at York was delighted by the replacement, having known the reliability of the machines from their work in the past.


    UK is one of the largest markets for vertical RIMA-SYSTEM log stackers with more than 200 machines sold and installed in the past.
