3D Printing: 3D Printing is the process of making a solid, three dimensional object from a digital file. It is an additive process where layer by layer of material is added to create virtually any shape. They work primarily on creating prototypes for custom machine parts for local manufacturers. They also create proprietary prototypes to be ultimately manufactured on lathes or mills.
Benefits of Product
Times Printing is the region’s exclusive producer of ECO-Printed® print work, which means they are committed to environmentally responsible printing practices. These practices reduce waste and prevent pollution throughout the entire printing process.
To ensure their client’s orders get completed on time they have two of every critical piece of machinery, which allows them to continue production while doing any repairs and maintenance needed. They also have a back up generator to supply power to the plant in case of power outages.
Their Quickmaster DI’s are revolutionary four color, waterless offset printing presses. This system allows for unparalleled level of waste reduction while producing top quality printing. In this process, electronic files are sent directly from the computer to the presses. No conventional film, plates, or related hazardous chemistry is used. The DI prints utilizing vegetable based inks with organic pigments on recycled paper. There is no harsh chemical waste byproduct.
Digital Printing: Xerox digital presses were designed to strictly control emissions of chemicals and noise during equipment use. They have chemical emission levels that are well below global regulatory requirements. Xerox dry ink toner is non-toxic and does not generate hazardous waste (based on U.S. Federal regulations). This is the result of careful selection of materials and control of the raw material ingredients. The toner cartridges are recycled after use.
Recycled Paper: Most of the papers in stock have recycled content. They have access to papers that are 100% post consumer recycled, FSC certified papers, alternative fiber papers, and papers made with 100% Green Energy.
Mailing: They have the equipment necessary to offer automated mailing services. Mailing lists are checked for duplicates and addresses that have changed within the last year are updated. Addresses and barcodes are printed directly onto the printed pieces, eliminating the need for address labels. Services such as gluing, tabbing, inserting and folding are also offered. Orders are then presorted and delivered to the post office.
