Hederman Brothers Places Order for New KBA Rapida 106 41" Six-Color Full LED UV Curing System Press Hederman Brothers, a leading full-service commercial printer located in Ridgeland, MS, placed an order at drupa in Germany for the purchase and delivery of a new KBA (Booth 1435) Rapida 106 41" six-color press plus coater featuring Air Motion Systems (AMS) (Booth 2825) full high-energy effi ciency LED UV, Quali- Tronic ColorControl inline color control for quality control, and a lightning-fast 20,000 sph. This 118-year-old family-run, fourth-generation fi rm will be retiring two older sheetfed presses and installing its fi rst new high-performance KBA Rapida 106 machine in a new facility during the fourth quarter of 2016. It will be the fi rst press in North America with two (AMS) high power XP-11 LED lamps and multiple docking points including end of press. “Our goal is to continually serve our customers with the highest quality, most advanced technology and fastest throughput,” says Doug Hederman, president and CEO of Hederman Brothers and its fourth-generation leader. “We chose this specially confi gured press with proven automation and technology from KBA because we believe it will surpass the high expectations and demands of our loyal customers and address the speed, quality, and innovative designs that we produce for them. This will be our fi rst KBA press. After thoroughly vetting the other press manufacturers, we felt that KBA and AMS delivered the most innovative press technology to carry our business into the next generation.” The uniquely-confi gured press with its high energy effi ciency, heat-less solid state UV LED curing provides stunning results and faster turnaround speed. Hederman will be receiving exceptional results for high end special effects and immediate post-production work such as cutting and scoring, and will no longer need to worry about powder-fi lled pressrooms, expensive IR/Hot Air dryers, marking problems, or waiting for sheets to dry. Hederman will also join a select group of fellow KBA customers in North America that are operating Rapida sheetfed presses with the highest run speed of any manufacturer an outstanding 20,000 sph. About a dozen presses are in full production among some of the best known and highly respected printers in the country where this lightning-fast speed is being met on a daily basis. Hederman is looking forward to being one of the showcase facilities where its high-speed press produces more jobs with quicker production. Hederman Brothers was established in 1898 by brothers Robert and Tom Hederman in Jackson, MS. In 1928, the fi rm purchased the fi rst offset printing press to operate in Mississippi. After many years of steady growth, Robert’s sons, Zach and Henry, assumed control of the thriving company in 1938. For decades the fi rm continued to thrive. In 1982, Henry and his son, Hap, purchased the printing company from the other family members with plans of expanding the 40,000 square-foot offi ce in downtown Jackson. With business and technology booming in 1993, Hederman Brothers purchased its fi rst 40" six color press with aqueous coating capability and moved to a new facility in Ridgeland, MS, which nearly doubled the size of the downtown printing facility. In 1998, Hederman Brothers became an ISO certifi ed company and celebrated its 100th anniversary. Since then, the fi rm has added a new division called Hederman Direct as well as a full line of digital presses. More recently, the company is relocating into a new state of the art facility in Madison, MS to accommodate its continued growth.
