Baum's (Sidney, OH) Baum Print 18 small-format offset press is made in the United States. It reportedly offers bearer-to-bearer pressure for consistent dot transfer; sensor-controlled pile feeding; outstanding sheet separation; electronic sheet-travel monitoring; precise sheet alignment; helical gearing; AutoPlate integrated register system; large inking/dampening unit; laser-slit knife-type ink fountain; and automatic blanket washup. Numbering, imprinting and longitudinal perforation can be done in a single pass, further extending its range of applications.

A little folder history

Baumfolder Corp. began as the Liberty Folder Co. Russell Baum became a Liberty Dealer in 1935 and sold so many Liberty machines in the eastern United States that they became known as “Baum” folders. In 1950, Russell Baum became the company's sole owner. Heidelberg bought Stahl USA and, with it, Baumfolder in 1999. As a division of Heidelberg, Baumfolder makes equipment for postpress, finishing, mailing and contract assembly.
