Tuesday, July 06, 2004

Press release from the issuing company

Mortsel, Belgium – 2 July 2004 – Agfa’s :ApogeeX workflow and :Galileo CtP systems were recently used to print 50 different materials in 10 languages for the 95th Rotary International Convention. The convention, which was held May 23-26 in Osaka, Japan, was attended by 45,000 people from thirteen countries. Asahi Kosoku Printing Co, Ltd. of Osaka was chosen by Rotary International to supply printed materials for the four-day event. Daily meeting agendas were printed in English and Japanese, while programmes were printed in 10 different languages including; Japanese, English, German, French, Korean, Spanish, Italian, Swedish and Portuguese. Tatsuya Oka, president of Asahi Kosoku Printing Co., was proud that his company was selected for the task. “Before holding the convention, Rotary International held a competition to decide which printing company to use. They chose Asahi-Kosoku due to the reliability and high evaluation of :ApogeeX. JDF-based :ApogeeX is an open system that fills international requirements for borderless printing, which improves our capabilities,” said Mr. Oka. Each evening of the convention Asahi Kosoku Printing produced a PDF for the following day’s agenda. It was processed using :ApogeeX and plates were produced on the :Galileo. The materials were then printed to ensure timely next-day delivery to attendees. “During the convention 1,000 to 90,000 copies in 10 different languages were printed out using our :ApogeeX and :Galileo systems with no problems. I am very proud of my employees who completed this project with perfection,” said Mr. Oka.
