At the end of November last year, DG press successfully delivered and installed a brand new Vision web offset press to the Portuguese security printing specialist, Imprensa Nacional – Casa da Moeda (INCM) in Lisbon.
INCM is the oldest manufacturing establishment in Portugal and has a long history (more than 700 years) in the manufacturing of the Portuguese currency. The company also prints a large range of security products; e.g. identification documents, bank cards, values, (tax stamps) diplomas and certificates. This new Vision web offset press enables INCM to increase their production capacity and improve its service significantly, whilst offering new levels of productivity and efficiency.
Luis Machado, Managing Director at INCM, about the new Vision web offset press: “The security printing activity is of great importance to ensure the existence of trust in all relationships between State, citizens and organisations, which require authentic and reliable documents. INCM guides all its activity for the maximum quality and safety of its equipment, production processes and products.”
Remko Koolbergen, Director of DG press, commented on the important investment choice taken by INCM under the International Public procurement procedure: “DG press’ mission is to build web offset printing machines which fulfil the customer’s production needs and to provide the necessary support services needed to maintain these high performance printing machines. The Vision can produce an extremely wide variety of security and government-oriented documents. The advantages of the new Vision web press for INCM are the superior print quality, the wide range of in-line processing options and the short make-ready & change-over times that the press provides. These are important considerations when you need to meet the ever-changing and growing demands of the Portuguese marketplace.”
