DocuMart revs up prepress workflow with Heidelberg Suprasetter A75

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, GA - DocuMart reports the installation of a Suprasetter A75 SCL CtP device with Prinect prepress workflow at its Portland, OR facility. The new platesetter replaced a competitive machine that hampered operations with lower quality, lower resolution, slower speeds and an unstable RIP. In contrast, said Prepress Manager Michael Hood, "The new Suprasetter not only has greatly improved our speed, but the quality is such that we don't have to recalibrate all the time, and the line resolution and hybrid screening yield a much cleaner dot." In addition, "Our Saphira thermal plates don't need much water, so they run better on press." Best of all, said Hood, who lobbied energetically for the Heidelberg machine, the Suprasetter's single cassette loader enables the platesetter to run at night, leaving perfect, finished plates for press operators in the morning. The new Suprasetter currently produces around 1,500 plates per month for DocuMart. As for service after the sale, Heidelberg personnel have been nothing less than "awesome," Hood said.
Family owned and with 51 employees in Portland, OR, DocuMart serves a broad-based regional clientele. The company has several other locations in Portland, in addition to facilities in Utah, Louisiana and Colorado.
