Peachtree Business Products Chooses PlateStream CtP Solution

Monday, February 20, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Printware, the leading independent manufacturer of high quality, high performance and innovative polyester CtP solutions, announces the installation of a PlateStream CtP system at Peachtree Business Products of Marietta, GA.

Alexandre Vercammen, Coordinator at Peachtree Business Products, was given the task of streamlining the plate-making operations for his company. “Our PlateMaker 4 was due for replacement. We were limited to line art reproduction, and lot of rework was required at the press, increasing our lead-time to shipping,” stated Vercammen.

A colleague knew that Printware is the expert in CtP for short-run press runs, so Vercammen contacted Printware to get a better understanding of how the PlateStream could improve the CtP operations at Peachtree Business Products.

“PlateStream is clearly the optimum choice for organizations looking to improve short run offset operations” pointed out Bill Frederick, Printware Director of Sales. Many customers with older imagesetters and RIP technology have been able to upgrade to new or refurbished PlateStream solutions well within their budgets.

PlateStream polyester CtP systems surpass customer expectations for cost effectiveness, flexibility and versatility. Offering a portrait or landscape format digital, the PlateStream CtP system allows printers to better compete by containing costs in their operations. 

“I cannot praise enough the Printware team; the knowledge across the board is phenomenal,” commented Vercammen. “Their tailor-made installation was so easy we were up and running in no time. These people really care about their products and equipment performance. We are now in the 21st century with an affordable CtP system.”

PlateStream CtP systems meet daily production demands with:

  • Affordable, quick payback, complete systems
  • Flexible portrait or landscape formats (10” to 18.1” width range)
  • Accurate press-ready punched plates with a standard integrated or offline punch
  • 60-120 press-ready plates per hour to meet peak production requirements
  • +/- 0.001” registration accuracy across four consecutive plates for the most demanding process color work
  • Minimal waste with Printware’s exclusive long rolls of SilverStreamColor+™ plate material
  • Workflow and job management options to meet the demands of even the busiest prepress departments

The capabilities of the PlateStream family make it the most automated, high performance polyester CtP unit in the industry.
