Palani: “Suprasetter A75 has helped us win new customers”

Speaking about the overall deal, Palani M, managing director of Subam Printers said, “When we decided to get a thermal CTP system, Suprasetter was an automatic choice. And to ensure we get the best quality output from the investment we thought the package deal with Prinect and Saphira plates made perfect sense.” Known for its compactness and small footprint, Suprasetter A75 comes with an online processor and Heidelberg claimed, it has the lowest energy usage in its class.

“I think quality, accuracy and time saving are the key benefits that we have witnessed since the CTP has been operational. This has not only helped increase customer satisfaction but also helped us win new customers who clearly see a marked difference in output in terms of competition,” said Palani.

“The Prinect Production Manager software supplied with the Suprasetter is not only easy to use, but extends from pre-press to the press, and helping us to do the colour settings for the press effectively.

This has reduced make-ready on the press and improved quality and productivity,” he added Tiruvannamalai-based Subam has an impressive line of presses including a Heidelberg SM74, a twocolour Heidelberg press and a couple of Autoprint presses. The company also has a host of post-press equipment like perfect binding machines, UV coating, folders, and stitchers, to ensure all finishing is done in-house.

“Subam is a regular investor on Heidelberg equipment, and the Print site contract is a mutually beneficial model for both of us. With this model, the buyer need not worry about the supply of consumables and service since we take care of it,” said Ganesan Venkataraman, DGM sales, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

Built upon Heidelberg’s proprietary laser technology, the Heidelberg Suprasetter A75 and uses an Intelligent Diode System (IDS). Developed and patented by Heidelberg, the IDS eliminates production losses, even if one or more diodes fail. The CTP also includes an internal punching system for maximum register accuracy, reducing make-ready times and minimising wastage, particularly for repeat jobs.

“If I could sum up the entire experience of utilising the CTP it would be quality and reliability. This is immense since we are now able to commit the quality of delivery to our customers and duly deliver,” concluded Palani.
