Heidelberg Reports Prepress, Press and Postpress Product Installs
Gateway Printing Runs with Assurance on Heidelberg Prepress and Press Equipment
Gateway Printing & Office Supply, Edinburg, TX, reports the installation of a Heidelberg Suprasetter 105 CtP device with Prinect Prepress Manager workflow and Prinect Prepress Interface to ensure the direct transfer of print-relevant parameters from the prepress to the press setting stage with minimal waste. The company also installed a second Printmaster QM 46-2 concurrently with the new Suprasetter, which is used to image Saphira Chemfree plates.
Gateway, along with its subsidiary, Jones & Cook Stationers, serves customers across North America from locations in Edinburg, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, McAllen, Houston and San Antonio, offering office supplies, office furniture and teaching aids, along with its full service commercial and promotional printing. The company’s printing division produces high-quality, four-color and five-color printing for national and international businesses, as well as for local companies and organizations.
Gateway’s pressroom houses Heidelberg presses exclusively, including the pair of Printmaster QM 46 two-color presses, a five-color Speedmaster SM 52, a five-color Speedmaster SM 74, and a four-color Speedmaster SM 102. The company also offers a broad array of finishing services with the help of a Polar 137 EM paper cutter, B20 and B30 continuous-feed Stahlfolders, and a Stitchmaster ST 90 saddlestitcher.
The number one reason Gateway turns to Heidelberg for its equipment and software needs is reliable and ready service, said Sonia Garcia, Vice President of Printing. “Aside from having the best equipment in the world, Heidelberg technicians are incredible,” she said. “One even answered the phone while he was on vacation!”
Olympic Printing Ramps It Up with New Installs from Heidelberg
Olympic Printing in Norcross, GA, recently replaced an aging thermal platesetter with a Suprasetter manual top-loading A75 CtP device. Like the older unit, the new Suprasetter anchors the company’s automated Prinect Prepress Manager workflow. The installation was necessary, said company president David Gale, to enable Olympic to prepare the larger plates it would be running on its newly acquired, Certified Remanufactured Speedmaster CD 74 five-color press. According to Gale, the Suprasetter and the Speedmaster CD 74, with its larger sheet size and ability to run thicker stocks, together will help the company develop a larger presence in metropolitan Atlanta’s growing market for POP/POS printing. Elsewhere in the shop, the company operates a pair of POLAR paper cutters and a Stahlfolder, in addition to a six-color MO press and a four-color GTO.
Twenty-eight-year-old Olympic Printing describes itself as a general commercial printer specializing in short- to medium-run length printing for a client list that ranges from Fortune 500 companies to local agencies. Employing a staff of 35 to produce everything from stationery to annual reports, the company has a long history of success in the Atlanta area. Its primary equipment supplier is Heidelberg, said Gale, simply because ”We and everybody else in the printing industry, equate the Heidelberg name with unassailable quality and reliability.”
