Odhams – Cerutti Press

Vanguard undertook numerous projects to install Gravure printing presses at the Watford Premises of Sun Printers Limited on behalf of BPCC.

Here, Vanguard riggers are completing the assembly of a Cerutti type 25RS, thirteen Unit Gravure Press, using a high- level, heavy -duty gantry to lift the 8 ton Turner bar assembly and position it on top of the assembled 55 ton Folder. At that time, the Type 25RS was the most advanced press ever produced by the Italian company and many of the weekend colour supplements of the national newspapers are still produced on that press, although we later dismantled, transported and installed the Press in BPCC’s Midsomer Norton plant.
