Inspecting Your Refurbished Printed Press: 5 Features to Look Out For

Previously, BBR Graphics have explained how best to go about finding the right company to supply your refurbished press and things to look out for. We mentioned the importance of carrying out an inspection on the machines you are seeking, but many industrial print buyers may not know what they need to inspect once they have found their potential press stock.

Here, BBR Graphics are going to list 5 specific features to thoroughly inspect when sourcing the right refurbished printing press:

  1. Price

Industrial printers are important investments for buyers, therefore ensuring that you are receiving value for money when you make your purchase is pivotal. It will be important to compare brands of machine and their models, to gain a rounded view of expected price brackets. Where budgets are scarce, it could be recommended to part-exchange one of your existing presses with a refurbished printer.

  1. Size

Whilst the sizes they are available in varies, industrial printers tend to take up a lot of space. The room you have available in your workplace will undoubtedly determine the dimensions of the printer you can afford to purchase.

  1. Environmental Impact

We can all do our bit to reduce the detrimental impact we have on the environment. By sourcing an industrial refurbished press that is environmentally friendly, your company can ensure compliance with regulations regarding harmful gas and reduce the health impacts that harmful emissions can have on staff.

  1. Additional functions

Some print buyers may require an industrial printer that does exactly what it says on the tin. Others may require one that offers other functions such as scanning, lamination, and mass printing. This is worth asking your supplier about when sourcing the desired press.

  1. User-Safety

This is heavily important, as it is likely that the industrial press will be regularly used by technicians and staff. When researching your refurbished press, it will be important to ensure that the press comes with an official CE mark in addition to all the other necessary safety accreditations. For refurbished press stock that has had parts added or replaced, ensure that you have checked who the OEM is, and whether their manual is available. The last issue you would want is to be held accountable for negligence.

We have high name brands of printers available, from Heidelberg to Rapida and Manroland, all of which have varying warranties, ensuring you get the best value for money with the service-life of your printer.
