The IES Press Relocation Process

Our print press relocations are carried out via a proven process, including the following steps:

  1. Evaluation – a full evaluation, including a print press inspection to check for any mechanical or electronic errors, and a print test for sample production.
  2. Decommission – the print press is prepared for disassembly, including the removal of ink, ink heads, paper from the press and the organization of the IT system. Parts are marked and bagged. 
  3. Disassemble – disassembly is conducted in two stages, with electrical disconnection preceding mechanical dismantle. 
  4. Move – our experienced millwrights and riggers use the latest equipment to overcome moving challenges.  
  5. Packing for shipment – IES designs and produces our own ISPM15 wooden crates for the secure packing of machine modules. Air, sea or road shipping is offered as standard, and we handle customs clearance including required documentation. 
  6. Reassemble – we conduct an evaluation of the flooring area at the destination site to ensure it is supportive of the press. Using calibrated and certified leveling devices, we create the conditions for optimal positioning and tramming. 
  7. Recommission – each print press relocation is completed by a customer acceptance test, after we rebuild your press and ensure the machine is returned to its optimum specification.

What Our Clients Say

“We have recently used IES for tool move outs. These folks did an excellent job at an attractive price compared to other alternatives (OEMs). They were very flexible and were able to respond at short notice and meet aggressive schedules with no issues. IES provided a very high level of professional planning and documentation for every tool move. If you are in need of contractors to perform a tool move, we highly suggest you investigate this option.”
