Largest Denmark Newspaper Upgrades Capabilities with Agfa
Press release from the issuing company
Mortsel, Belgium – 8 March 2004 – Agfa announced that the largest newspaper printer in Denmark, Trykkompagniet, has purchased two violet :Polaris XTV CtP systems and the new :Arkitex workflow from Agfa. The company also signed a four-year agreement to use Agfa's :Lithostar plates and extended warranty programme.
New wave of investments.
Among the first to convert to CtP from a film workflow, Trykkompagniet has been using Agfa's :Polaris 100 CtP systems for years. One of those systems will be upgraded with a violet laser diode. The company is also upgrading its current workflow to :Arkitex, Agfa's newest newspaper workflow.
"Agfa's new workflow system, :Arkitex, will help make our automation simpler and gives us advanced production planning techniques," said Trykkompagniet's managing director Jørgen Kloster. ":Arkitex and the new :Polaris systems will help us sustain the growth we expect to achieve."
:Arkitex can easily accommodate any size operation and it integrates easily with Agfa or non-Agfa systems. This allows newspaper printers to be flexible, based on the levels of automation they need.
"We are pleased that Trykkompagniet choose Agfa's violet systems and :Arkitex workflow for their expansion. The complete Agfa violet CtP system, including plates, workflow and hardware, gives users superior speed, precision, reliability and quality," said Kurt Smits, director of Agfa's newspaper business.
