RDP 260 Offset Press

A powerful, reliable workhorse offset press, the RDP 260 was installed in May 1992. The original configuration consisted of a splicer, four conventional ink units, numbering units, all processing units and folder.

In 1996, the press was modified to included six additional UV print units, Completely rebuilt 4 existing print units for UV, added scratchoff/varnish unit, added RF and UV dryers. It has been in continuous use since installation and has been carefully maintained.
