Robin Enterprises Installs Two Heidelberg Suprasetters
Press release from the issuing company
KENNESAW, Ga. – May 2, 2007 – Robin Enterprises Co., a $23 million general commercial printer in Westerville, Ohio, recently made the move to a PDF/JDF-based workflow with the aid of twin Heidelberg Suprasetter E 105 platesetters with Multi-Cassette Loaders, Prinect Prinance Prinect Meta Dimension RIP, Prinect Meta Shooter imaging software console, and Prinect Prepress Interface.
Why two Suprasetters? “We produce around 100 plates per day, which a single Suprasetter handles easily,” acknowledges Production Manager Duane Moore. “However, because our customer commitment is to service, having a backup platesetter enables us to keep going if anything should go wrong.”
Of Robin Enterprises’ 129 employees, 30 are deployed in the company’s pressroom, which hosts an array of Heidelberg presses, including two 6-color Speedmaster CD 102 presses with coaters, a 5-color Speedmaster CD 102 press with coater, 2- and 4-color Speedmaster SM 102 presses, a Speedmaster SM 102 5-color with 3/2 perfector, as well as 2-, 4-, and 6-color Speedmaster SM 52 presses – 40 Heidelberg printing units in all.
The company’s bindery features three POLAR paper cutters. The company boasts the largest installation of Prinect Prinance in North America. “We chose Heidelberg platesetters because we believe the company has a serious, long-term commitment to prepress development to complement its expertise in press technology,” Moore says. Robin Enterprises serves a national and international clientele, including many Fortune 500 companies.
Precision Graphics Trades Up To Fully Automated Heidelberg Suprasetter 105
Precision Graphics, a high-end commercial printer in Mohnton, Pa., now feeds its four Heidelberg Speedmaster presses with the output from a fully automated Suprasetter E105 thermal platesetter with internal punching, multi-cassette loader and Prinect MetaShooter.
The new platesetter replaces the company’s existing Prosetter 102. “It’s efficient, chemistry-free and clean,” said Tom DiLullo, president. “Our employees are excited about it, and it’s no wonder. It takes less time, material, and effort with very little maintenance to output the 900+ plates we use every month. The Suprasetter 105E is truly hassle-free.”
A longtime Heidelberg customer, Precision Graphics operates two 5-color Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 102 perfectors, a 6-color Speedmaster CD 102 with aqueous coating, and a 5-color Speedmaster SM 52 press. The company’s full-service bindery hosts a POLAR 137 XY programmable cutter.
Heidelberg Consumables are in use throughout the shop, including Saphira Chem-Free thermal plates, ink foils and blankets. Established in 1979, privately-held Precision Graphics employs 40 people and serves regional manufacturing clients.
