Printing equipment

Printing equipment
Whirlwind insists on world class technology and equipment. Why? Because we are passi­onate about being the best at what we do and of the benefits it delivers to our customers in consistent quality, first rate colour or reliable delivery.
But not only do we demand our print technology to be the latest, but as we move towards becoming the most sustainable printers in Australia, we also need print equipment that helps us achieve this goal.
Our technology and equipment is also upgradeable which means we keep up-to-date with any new developments that will improve our printing process, product offering and quality.
So what have we got in Print technology that makes us stand out from the rest:

Pre­ Press Technology

Kodak InSite software lets us communicate and collaborate with our clients online – from job creation to print. From any web-enabled computer, our clients, pre press operators and Account Managers can proof print jobs online, make changes, and approve artwork.


Metrix is an automatic layout calculator used by our manufacturing team to calculate complex layouts for print. Developed specifically for the print industry, it considers factors such as product bleed, grain direction, press imaginable area as well as post press requirements.
Metrix also imports data from our management information system and then exports data to pre press and finishing.


Our Kodak Prinergy pre press workflow system is designed to perform all the functions on the data that are necessary to get a PDF "ready" for the press. Prinergy works seamlessly with InSite and Metrix, which means we have an optimised, centrally managed workflow which allows for faster turnaround in your print jobs.
Lotem 800 CTP
We output print data to a Kodak Lotem 800 II platesetter with a five cassette automated plateloader. The Lotem 800 II uses Squarespot thermal imaging technology for the sharpest resolution and reliability – from original file to the press.
A fully automated system – plates are loaded from a cassette, punched, mounted on the drum for imaging and unloaded directly into an inline processor.

Printing Presses

Komori Presses
Offering the best inking systems in the world – Komori Presses are renowned for their performance and reliability.
Using Komori patented technology, these machines increase flexibility, produce accurate colours and result in higher quality print jobs. They also produce jobs at speed: our Komori 40 inch 10 colour perfector is the fastest two-sided printing machine in the world. Up to 13,000 double-sided sheets can be passed through this machine per hour and drying time is significantly reduced – in some cases stocks just take 30 minutes to dry.
Our presses are quality controlled, as they have patented inking systems that includes a hickey removal system and new ink design that produces quality colours everytime.
Our presses have the capacity to print a wide range of stocks ranging from 60gsm to 500gsm.
Not only do our printing presses allow us greater flexibility and quality in print, they are also easier on the environment. Komori presses have reduced paper waste, are low in energy consumption, use less chemicals, there is a reduction in solid waste and less noise.
One of our 5 colour Komori press can also apply an aqueous varnish - a more environmentally friendly coating which is more easily recycled than laminated products.


hirlwind Print offers a range of finishing services designed to bring your print job to life. From sealing varnishes on all coated stocks, scoring wheels on folding machines, single or double sided laminate to spot UV, we can cater for most finishing requirements.
