No news is good news since Parker Printing installed Heidelberg Suprasetter A75

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, Ga. - Parker Printing, Fountain Valley, Calif. confirms the addition of a Heidelberg Suprasetter A75 thermal platesetter with integration via Prinect MetaShooter into its existing prepress workflow. According to vice president Michael Hawks, the company had been experiencing mounting technical difficulties and significant unplanned downtime with an existing competitive-model CtP device, prompting its replacement with the Heidelberg machine.

"We used to hear daily complaints from our operators, but I don't hear anything about our platemaker anymore," Hawks said. "We're burning plates faster, our workflow is more efficient, and we're outputting a more accurate plate with a better image." The company also has made the switch to Heidelberg Saphira Chemfree plates, burning around 400 per month for use in its two small- and one half-size format presses.

"We shopped around for a new CtP device and became convinced that Heidelberg had the most robust system for what we needed to do," Hawks said. "It's been an all-around great experience working with Heidelberg-the people, their expertise, and their precision in technology. We are very impressed."
