GravityStack 48 to be Shown for the First Time at Graph Expo

Thursday, September 26, 2002

Press release from the issuing company

GROVELAND, MASSACHUSETTS -- September 25, 2002 -- The innovative GravityStack 48 platestacker will be demonstrated live at Graph Expo 2002 in Chicago from October 6th through the 9th. It will be in operation at three different booths, Agfa Corporation (Booth #3823), Lastra America Corp./Western Lithotech (Booth #3848), and Glunz & Jensen, Inc. (Booth #4831), during the show. "The GravityStack 48 design is ideal for the printer that is concerned about cost, but requires a high level of reliability," says Bob Franklin, President of RobertJamesDesigns, LLC who is the manufacturer of the product. "In the past, printers didn't have any other option for a platestacker, but to purchase the large, expensive electro-mechanical versions. They now have a choice to purchase the smaller, more economical GravityStack 48, if their budget and requirements are more modest." The price is set at $2,895 USD plus shipping. Price Matters... With the small to medium printers being the primary buyers of digital platesetting systems today, the total CTP system price is a key consideration. In this hyper-competitive market, these same printers must implement a CTP workflow to survive while keeping operational costs to a minimum to remain competitive. The GravityStack 48 helps these 4 and 8-up printers meet the common goal of implementing a reliable CTP workflow while keeping costs low. What Printers Need, Not More Than They Want... By supporting a maximum plate size of 32 x 44 inches, the GravityStack 48 perfectly matches the requirements of the small to medium size printer. Its simple design and small footprint allows for installation into areas where space is limited. It occupies 45% less floor space than other platestackers, while delivering the same functionality, at nearly half the cost. As Rick Littrell, Customer Satisfaction Manager for Littrell Associates who is the sales and marketing agent for RobertJamesDesigns, LLC, says "It's just what the cost conscious printer needs, not more than they want." Availability... The GravityStack 48 is available immediately for worldwide sale through selected dealers and Littrell Associates (www.littrell.biz). The system is backed by a three-year limited warranty. The price is $2,895 USD plus shipping. Dealer opportunities are available, please inquire for details. About Littrell Associates...
