PRISCO (Printers’ Service) is pleased to provide this preview of our activities at DRUPA 2012, Hall 6, Stand D24, May 3-16, 2012, in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The printing industry is currently under severe stress due to current economic conditions as well as rapid technological shifts. PRISCO has taken up the challenge to assist you in increasing your profitability and keep up with new technology while reducing your impact on our environment. “Never before has PRISCO been able to offer so many solutions at DRUPA 2012 to help your business grow in these turbulent times,” said Jean Decoene, Business Manager, Prisco Europe Bvba.
“PRISCO has been the leader in providing affordable products and systems that have minimized the impact on the environment since the introduction of the first commercially successful alcohol-free fountain concentrates almost 50 years ago,” said Alan Lord, Business Manger, Prisco Europe Ltd. PRISCO innovations are always designed to provide the most cost effective, productive and practical answers for print production. Our “GO GREEN with PRISCO” initiative encompasses all of PRISCO’s sustainable technologies and over 100 years of PRISCO pressroom expertise.
IMPROVE YOUR PRINTING CONSISTENCY, REDUCE WASTE AND INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY
Standardizing the water you use to mix with fountain concentrates is a key factor in controlling the printing process and producing consistent and predictable results. Having this consistent starting point translates to waste reduction, higher productivity and, ultimately, higher profitability. PRISCO will demonstrate how our PRISCOTECH water treatment systems can revolutionize your pressroom.
Because alcohol evaporates rapidly, it enters the air in the manufacturing environment. This highly flammable substance has negative health consequences. Additionally, isopropanol is a VOC that participates in the destruction of the ozone layer. Alcohol-free printing offers lower ink and water settings along with the ability to print a given density using an ink film that isn’t diluted by alcohol. The result is better quality printing with sharper dots and less tendency for emulsification. Alcohol-free printing significantly reduces ink consumption resulting in cost savings and lower environmental impact.
Integrating PRISCO alcohol-free fountain solutions into your production PROCESS assures lowering of VOCs while increasing Quality, Consistency, Productivity and Plant Safety. We will be delighted to show you how alcohol-free printing and our complete range of alcohol-free fountain concentrates can make a positive impact on the environment and on your business.
REDUCE FOUNTAIN SOLUTION WASTE AND IMPROVE QUALITY
PRISCO leads the way again, with cost effective FloClear systems for fountain solution recycling. The patented FloClear technology, winner of the PIA/GATF Intertech Award, is the world’s leading process for recycling fountain solutions at quality printing plants across the globe. According to Andrew Douglas, President of PriscoTech, “fountain solution life is extended and its clarity maintained for months of press operation. PRISCO is proud to offer this world class technology for every pressroom application.”
IMPROVE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY AND DIFFERENTIATE YOUR BUSINESS
Are you looking for a way to stand out from your competition? Our innovative SpeedyDry ink additive permits ink printed on a variety of porous and non-porous printing substrates to set almost instantly without any change in color. This reduces energy costs related to drying and reduces substrate waste due to ink offsetting, which ultimately improves productivity. Tackle jobs using metallic and spot color inks that others won’t be able to print with SpeedyDry from PRISCO.
PARTICIPATE IN THE PACKAGING MARKET
According to Jean Decoene, “The packaging sector of our industry is one segment that has not been as affected by current negative market forces. Companies who provide printed packaging have seen very positive growth.” Prisco has answered the call to provide key products that are certified as complying with food packaging regulations. Information on these innovative products is available at our stand.
ECONOMICALLY CONFORM TO INDUSTRY REGULATIONS AND STANDARDS
PRISCO R&D has developed a number of economical products that meet or exceed industry specifcations and regulations. We offer fountain concentrates and solvents that meet the most severe test criteria developed by leading press manufacturers and certified by FOGRA.
