Brazilian Printing Company Honored on Purchase of 11,000th CTP Platesetter from Screen
Press release from the issuing company
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. September 12, 2007 -- The commercial introduction of the first Screen computer-to-plate (CTP) recorder in 1995 stands out as a significant milestone for digital prepress technology. The 1998 debut of the PlateRite 8000 eight-up platesetter established Screen as a leader in thermal CTP.
Screen's commitment to innovation is exemplified by the fact that today the PlateRite portfolio boasts the widest range of formats, from two-page to 36-page, for commercial sheetfed, web, newspaper and package printing.
At Graph Expo 2007, Mike Fox, president of Screen (USA), will present a plaque to Mr. Hely Vaz Diniz and Mr. Roberto Constantino, directors of Gráfica Ave-Maria in São Paulo, Brazil. The presentation will mark the purchase of the 11,000th CTP unit manufactured by Screen.
"The decision to purchase Screen equipment was based on the excellent reputation of the brand and its strong and excellent presence in the Brazilian market," Mr. Constantino said. "Another decisive factor in the purchase of a Screen CTP device was the technical assistance team from T&C (Screen's premier dealer for the Brazilian market), who without a doubt represents an example of efficiency in this sector."
Gráfica Ave-Maria, whose corporate name is Ação Social Claretiana, prints religious materials, including bibles and Christian pamphlets, as well as general commercial projects.
Gráfica Ave-Maria chose a PlateRite 8600S, a high-speed eight-up platesetter that features a 64-channel laser diode imaging head and outputs 20 plates per hour.
