Beijing College of Printing Installs Sinapse Press Simulator

Monday, October 20, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

(October 19, 2008) The Beijing College of Printing, a division of Beijing Industry and Trade Technicians College, has just installed 22 more Sinapse SHOTS sheetfed offset press training simulators following their initial purchase of two systems. This makes Beijing College the world's largest installation with 24 licenses from Sinapse Print Simulators.
Sinapse Print Simulators (www.sinapseprint.com) makes a wide range of press process training simulator systems for sheetfed and web based production – offset, flexo and gravure – they lead the world market in such high technology press simulator training systems with over 1,500 installations to date.
Mr ZhanLlian Cheng, master of Beijing Industry and Trade Technicians College: "I heard about the simulators several years ago, and purchased two SHOTS sheetfed simulators to evaluate their possibilities. I found them to be very realistic with regard to printing. In addition, they are easy and interesting for students to use; teachers can easily design new courses; and they are open to the integration of other material including multimedia.
 "Of course, simulation is also much less expensive than purchasing real presses - particularly when it comes to teaching 600 students about the offset process, press operation and quality control."  
SHOTS Certified Trainers
Several of the College's instructors qualified as SHOTS Certified Trainers after a week-long Sinapse training session, allowing the college to become an accredited SHOTS Training Center.
Mr Cheng adds that: "Being the world's largest SHOTS installation is good, but what is really important are the benefits that Sinapse technology gives our students:
* a way to accelerate student learning,
* an objective means of evaluating their performance, and
* an enjoyable and stimulating learning method.
"It prepares them for an exciting future and helps to provide the Chinese print and packaging industry with the skilled personnel necessary for continued growth in volume and quality."
Mr Frank Mo, CEO of Shanghai Ziyang, one of the Sinapse distributors in China, explains the importance of print simulators in relation to their other activities: "Ziyang is the largest distributor of SHOTS in China – and finds that they fit very well with our distribution of color control and proofing equipment, and with our partner training company Bestprint.  The simulator shows trainees how and why to use the color control tools (to minimize costs and ensure high quality) and is part of a structured and measurable training program."
Mr Peter Herman, CEO of Sinapse Print Simulators, comments: "Beijing College of Printing is one of the most important educational institutions in China for printer training. Therefore they have a high priority to use modern training technology. Their reputation for excellence makes sure that they will be a source of new innovations in the simulator and will create a virtuous circle of continuing improvement."
A ceremonial plaque at the College's SHOTS Training Center recognizes this new partnership and was dedicated by the three organizations.
SHOTS and other Sinapse press simulators will be shown at the AIP exhibition in Shanghai in November - check the www.sinapseprint.com site for the exact booth numbers and dates.
