The Kodak Trendsetter is taking the computer-to-plate (CTP) industry by storm - 17-03-2011
Antalis South Africa (Pty) Ltd welcome The Print Inn to our CTP family!
“Having worked with Antalis for many years I wasn’t surprised when the installation of our Kodak Trendsetter 400 Platesetter was completely seamless. I can honestly say that the entire experience was excellent and we are thrilled with how our business has grown since!” commented Vijay Singh, General Manager, Print Inn, Newcastle.
“The Kodak Trendsetter is taking the computer-to-plate (CTP) industry by storm as we see an increasing number of our clients look for more efficient ways to get their products to market. The Trendsetter is a process-less machine that is solvent free and, considering the dramatic increase in the cost of these solvents not to mention their harmful effect on the environment, we are very supportive of their exclusion.” commented Mel Ellis, National Sales Manager for Antalis.
“The Antalis team are so professional both from their knowledge of the equipment as well as how to install the machinery, I would highly recommend them to clients and competitors alike! What’s more is that we have a highly qualified internal team who took to this new technology like bees to honey, it just made taking this big step completely stress-free.
Our decision to move into the CTP arena was two-fold; we were looking to offer our clients better quality and faster turnaround times plus film prices are constantly increasing which puts added pressure on our business. What’s more I feel strongly that we need to reduce the negative impact that our industry has on the environment. The Kodak thermal direct non process plates save both space and money, eliminate chemistry and plate processor costs and waste plus there is a reduction in water usage.” continued Singh.
The Print Inn is a family-run business that has been a leading light in the complex and often stressful printing industry for more than 30-years. Boasting to be the ultimate provider for full colour commercial printing their printing facilities house some of the latest technology available.
“The Print Inn commented on the innovation, choice, sustainability and scalability of the equipment and how this has really integrated well for them. Not to mention the fact that it has opened up new revenue opportunities, enhanced operational efficiency and increased turnaround times. I can honestly say that we will add this to our list of success stories.” concluded Ellis.
