More flexibility with plate setting

December 7, 2009 by  

Stanleys, a printing company in Bolton Lancashire, have devised a way to give more flexibility with their platesetting. They have replaced their Lotem setter with two Heidelberg Suprasetter A74’s which will give them greater flexibility.

Director, Steve Wray, says the dual setup will allow them to be:

Far more flexible with our platemaking. We can produce long-run, multi-pagination jobs on one Suprasetter while the other can be kept for short-run work.

The company is also environmentally aware, offering a chemical-free platemaking service. They operate two Heidelberg ten colour presses capable of 60,000 impressions per hour, which equates to17 sheets per second, giving a 0-60 sheet time of 3.2 seconds. Art work is also in safe hands, they have a massive 10TB server; so never a lack of space, which is archived daily. Clients can also take advantage of their express proofing service.

Having the right printing equipment is a necessity especially when your deadline is approaching fast and you are still chasing client sign off.

This print company in Bolton has the benefit of 30 years experience. Smaller printing companies in Bolton may like to take a closer look at their operation and maybe benefit from their business model. Stanley’s mission statement says:

Central to our business is a skilled team committed to providing the best possible service. Combining experience, efficiency and friendliness, we make it our responsibility to offer you the most effective solution.

It appears that a combination of friendly efficiency and having the right equipment to service existing and new markets is the way to make printers happy.
