New press, new product – new levels of performance

Bishops Printers Ltd and Kinyo UK Ltd have recently worked closely together to evaluate Kinyo’s latest printing blanket called Triton – following extensive R&D work in Japan the Triton product was made available for UK trials earlier this year. Technical Sales Manager Paul Pickering held meetings with the Bishops management team of Paul Cull and Paul Hambling to arrange for press trials to commence on the newly installed Heidelberg XL75 ten colour with Impress Control. These trials were extremely successful, so Triton was further tested across the remaining 10 colour presses plus the Speedmaster SX74 presses with equal success.

As a result Triton has now been fitted to all 69 B2 units in the Bishops Printers Ltd press room – consumption over the previous blanket has been lowered over the 3 month trial period, this has been possible thanks to the construction of the Triton blanket – one of the many advantages is the thicker compressible layer which is designed to help absorb smashes.

The tough ThermaSphere® compressible layer also provides the optimum stability and rapid recovery required for high speed printing.

Uniform compressibility and very low gauge loss makes Triton the perfect product for all size formats.

The specially developed surface rubber provides an excellent balance between ink transfer and sheet release, ensuring good solid reproduction and consistent dot gain.

The specially formulated rubber surface has been designed for use with conventional and UV inks.
