Our investment into our business which aspires to be South Devon’s leading local commercial printer, continues with the installation of our new machine and highlights our commitment to invest in technology and skills to grow our business.
What is it?
A Screen Platerite 43005 Thermal CPT System which replaces our old Python CTO Heights Processor.
What does it do?
The machine puts the image to be printed onto plates. These plates then go into the press and printing begins. Making the plates is a key part of the lithographic print process – poor quality plates produce poor quality print, so by investing in new machinery we are improving our processes.
Using the Kodak Sonara processless plate it is completely chemical free, better for us, better for the environment, all whilst producing a better quality plate image.
It is fully automated – saving us valuable man hours.
It has the capacity to output 21 printing plates per hour.
