Purup-Eskofot Subsidiary Ships 500th Spinjet Imposition Proofing System
Press release from the issuing company
-- Eight-up two-sided digital proofing system at Arnold Printing will help employees and customers check color breaks and imposition --
LYSTRUP, DENMARK -- December 11, 2001 -- Purup-Eskofot subsidiary TechSage today announced the successful installation during October of its 500th SpinJet 1000 double-sided Imposition Proofing System, at Arnold Printing in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. The system was sold by GE Richards with the support of master distributor Tekgraf, Inc. The SpinJet 1000 system was first shipped in November 2000.
The SpinJet 1000 enables users to produce double-sided, eight-up full color imposition proofs at the maximum speed of the HP DesignJet 1000 large format printer. It uses the dual media path of the DesignJet, feeding from the roll and reloading the printed sheet for reverse side printing, without dismounting the roll. It then feeds from the roll again, for the next proof. Since its introduction, the SpinJet 1000 has proven to be a reliable, easy to install and easy to use proofing device. The SpinJet has been redesigned to accommodate the new HP DesignJet 1050C plus and DesignJet 1055CM plus models.
Arnold Printing is a commercial printer focusing on business collateral, direct mail, and stationery, with an expertise in floral stamping and embossing. Their sheet-fed press prints forms from 8 1/2 x 11 to 8-up. Arnold Printing uses Rampage for their computer-to-plate and computer-to-film workflows.
The SpinJet 1000 will be replacing Arnold's dylux analog proofing and Epson 5000 digital proofer. "We'll be using the SpinJet for both in-house and customer proofs," noted Bob Scales, Arnold Printing prepress manager. "As we move employees from conventional stripping to electronic work, we expect to save time and money. For example, we expect to save costs associated with outputting incorrect plates on our platesetter. The DesignJet will be the perfect tool for proofing school books, school programs and newsletters to check color breaks and imposition."
