Bradford & Bigelow Celebrates LED-UV Web Offset Press Installation (

Printing industry leaders gathered in Newburyport, Mass., to celebrate the startup at Bradford & Bigelow (B&B) of the first manroland Goss Lithoman 48-page, 4-color web offset press utilizing the most advanced LED/UV technology that eliminates all VOC emissions, substantially reduces energy consumption and paper waste, and provides operational efficiency with a press length 40 feet shorter than a traditional heatset web offset press. In addition to the environmental benefits, Baldwin’s LED/UV technology, with minimal heat, provides a better quality product with no web growth and runs at top-notch speed, according to Jonathan Fore, Baldwin’s Director of Product Management

“This successful launch has been a team effort and we are very grateful to our partners who made this startup a great success,” stated John Galligan, B&B CEO. It marks the company’s second manroland Goss web offset press install within the past four years, according to Rick Dunn, B&B EVP. “The manroland Goss engineering team did a terrific job adjusting the press design to integrate the LED/UV technology. And the on-site support of manroland Goss, AMS/Baldwin, and Universal Color was terrific,” Dunn said. “Challenges came up and our partners worked together and promptly addressed and resolved the issues,” added Mike Daugherty, B&B Press Manager.

B&B has been a client of both AMS/Baldwin and manroland Goss for several years. “We are delighted to see B&B embrace our advanced LED/UV system and serve as the beta site for this breakthrough technology,” pointed out Craig Black, Baldwin VP of Sales – Americas. “ This is truly a monumental environmental advance with worldwide impact, making web printing far more sustainable,” stated Jason Elliott, VP of Sales at manroland Goss Americas.
