Press release from the issuing company
HONG KONG, (May 3, 2001) - CreoScitex, a division of Creo Products Inc. (NASDAQ: CREO; TSE: CRE), has installed two Trendsetter® 2637V platesetters at KHL Printing Co Pte Ltd, one of Singapore's largest printers. KHL's major business is printing books, magazines and other publications. The family-owned and managed business is growing 12% annually.
After winning the tender for printing a new Singapore newspaper, KHL was interested in new, high-throughout computer-to-plate systems. KHL selected CreoScitex as the supplier and installed two Trendsetter 2637V AL platesetters that are each capable of a throughput of 75 plates per hour. The Trendsetter 2637V AL is upgradeable to 95 plates per hour.
"We are pleased to have developed a solution that fulfils the needs of KHL," said Hanan Drory, Sales Director, CreoScitex Asia Pacific. "KHL had actually started from scratch, building its own prepress system to the highest level of complexity using other systems. We're proud they chose CreoScitex."
The Trendsetter 2637V AL is a dedicated thermal platesetter for newspaper operations that achieves fast imaging using a 1200 dpi thermal imaging head. The imaging technology provides newspaper printers with a high level of process control and manufacturing efficiency, which translates into better press utilization, faster make-ready, less wastage, and greater consistency and repeatability than with other platemaking methods.
