Timson Press Technology

Bradford & Bigelow has the most efficient workflow in the industry – here’s why:

Timson 48-page Zero Make-Ready Presses

Our Timson presses produce zero toxic VOC emissions by utilizing better quality UV inks and drying technology. These inks greatly reduce energy consumption by eliminating costly and wasteful ovens and chillers. With a market focus on one trim size, 8.5×11, the UV inks eliminate marking and web growth and the open head Timson design prevents gusseting.

Additionally, our optically scanned barcoded signatures eliminate the possibility of missing or duplicate signatures within a book – all combined to create a superior manufacturing platform.
