Westcott Displays proudly announces that it has installed a new full size, high speed, automatic single sided mounting machine. The new mounter can run any size sheet up to 64″ x 80″.

Westcott has the sheet size capacity to mount and die cut the full size sheets printed on the KBA litho presses that are being installed around the country. This is one more way Westcott is staying on top of the trends in the industry. The new mounter is the fastest and largest litho laminator in the country.

Westcott Displays announces the installment of two full size die cutting presses. Both of these presses are larger than any of the other die cutting presses currently on our floor. The largest of the two has a maximum sheet size of 65″ x 80″, and the other press has a maximum sheet size of 55″ x 80″. The current full size press on our floor is 50″ x 80″, so this will increase Westcott’s sheet size capability, and make it compatible with the new large full size litho printing presses being installed around the country. The new additions to our equipment will make us more competitive and better equipped to produce our customer’s programs.
