The UK’s leading manufacturer & supplier of pressroom consumables

WeroAqua Metering Rollers

I was a little sceptical when I saw this advertised but following a trial period I can confirm that on one 2 colour perfecting press we are now Alcohol free without any efficiency issues, and looking to try our multi colours press in the near future, under the current climate with alcohol prices this will now mean a substantial annual saving on this press, thank you to Graham and his team for their support, a very good investment.

Finito Self-adhesive

We have run Finito self-adhesive packing sheets on our SM52 for approximately four years, which has saved us a considerable amount of time due to the longevity of the product. Their durability has meant that we haven’t needed to replace them as frequently despite the variety of work we run on the press and the self-adhesive factor means that it is much easier to change a blanket.

Westland LotoTec Rollers

”Equally satisfied with the performance of the LotoTec rollers and the personal service received from bfs, Nigel Hunt said “We insisted on printing Alcohol free on our KBA 105, but to print Alcohol free LED UV the LotoTec dampening has given us stability that was previously not possible.” Damon Machin at bfs added “Peter from Westland was more than happy to visit Blackmore with me to discuss their printing needs and I am delighted that we were able to offer a personal service combined with a rather specialist printing solution.”
