Allander in Edinburgh is switching CtP systems, taking a
Suprasetter 74 from Heidelberg because of its compatibility with
ImageControl when linked up through PrintReady and Prepress
Interface workflow software.
"We hadn't had thermal before but we are happy to switch
because it fits our type of printing. It's reliable, clean and
environmentally acceptable," says sales and marketing director Alan
The Suprasetter has three hungry presses to feed including a
ten-colour long perfector so Allander has opted for the
multi-cassette loading device which allows a number of plates to be
output with the system unattended.
The closed loop colour is being calibrated through a Print
Colour Management programme which creates an established centre by
ensuring all components in the colour chain from the press back are
working in tandem and to preset criteria.
FM Satin Screening, a means of using variable size of dots as
well as volume of dots to determine the colour replication, will be
offered to customers increasing the suite of services the Scottish
company can provide.
Allander supplies a range of general commercial work for
print management companies, designers, agencies, universities and
educational bodies along with a variety of other
businesses. It can handle full colour brochures, books, Report
& Accounts and magazines.
"In a tough market you have to get your productivity right
and meet the speed and efficiency demands that exist today," says
