Webbing up kites for many makes of press
About us and our webbing up kites.
J R Press Supplies are a family run UK company based on the edge of the New Forest. We specialize in webbing devices (kites) supported by in-force patents.
Our senior partner has over 30 years experience with newspaper presses, webbing device design and the manufacture of webbing kites.
Established in 1988, J R Press Supplies are dedicated to its customers in the Newspaper and magazine printing industry worldwide.
We manufacture webbing up kites for Man Roland, KBA, Wifag & Goss presses.
Manufacture of any type of webbing device is possible from a new or used sample. We can also produce webbing kites from a photograph or drawing with precise measurements.
Webbing up kites are made in any of the following combinations:
- Short (full web), medium and long (half web)
- Narrowed, standard width & wide
- Heat set and cold set
- Straight, standard offset or custom offset
Webbing chain attachments can be supplied in nipple, loop, velcro, eyelet or shoelace.
Our webbing kite products have proven to be more durable than others currently available. We, at J R Press Supplies, believe that our webbing devices are more reliable because they have been improved over the years, due to the valuable input from press hall managers worldwide.
All of our orders are shipped via UPS. We offer free express worldwide shipping to all of our customers who order a minimum of five webbing up kites.
To do our bit for the improvement of our environment, we recycle used packaging when possible.
