“We consume nearly 2,500 plates per month. Until now, we have been dependent on third-party pre-press bureaus. But it proved to be a time-consuming activity. For any plate rejection, we had to wait for a new plate, which delayed the press. Again, maintaining the design artworks was another concern as we are into the labels and packaging business. Thus, we decided to have an in-house pre-press setup,” Manoj Arora, director, Campolina Offset Printers, said.

He added that the company went for the Kodak Achieve platesetter, as it is productive and has a process-free operation.

Campolina was started with two-colour offset machines in 2010. Recently, the company added short-run packaging-printing to its portfolio. Now, the company’s offerings include roll labels, vinyl labels, waterproof labels, sheet labels, thermal labels, pharmaceutical labels, vial labels, etc — labels of various colours, shapes, and sizes from single to bulk orders of large corporations.

“The Kodak Achieve offers a process-less technology, which contributes to sustainability. Therefore, it was our first choice. Monotech Systems has good after-sales support. It already has a good reputation in the market, which was vouched by the third-party vendors as well. It has been a wonderful experience interacting with the team and with their services,” Arora said.

Recently, the company also purchased a digital label press from Monotech Systems.

The Kodak Achieve T400/T800 platesetters are robust and reliable CTP devices that deliver the stability of Kodak’s thermal light-valve imaging technology at a surprisingly low cost. They are based on the successful Kodak Trendsetter platesetter platform and are available with a variety of automation and speed options.
