Heidelberg MO 5-color Pressman

Progressive Printing,  15246 Gray Street, Rathdrum, ID  
  • I was recruited by the owner of this company to repair, and to produce quality work on a press that was not operable.  I volunteered my time to diagnose issues and to educate myself on the particulars of this press.  I demonstrated the expertise that was required to accomplish these objectives.
  • When I was hired, I repaired and managed the problems that the company was having with the Heidelberg.   Timing, feed issues, roller pressures, alcolor system, feed lines, registration, and general press neglect were some issues the press was suffering from when I began work for this employer.   I was able to rectify these issues and keep the press in good working order.  This substantially improved the company's ability to produce higher quality print work.
