Heidelberg Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Printmaster GTO 52 Launch
The company purchased the GTO in 2009 at China Print in Beijing and has been extremely happy with its print quality and flexibility from the outset. With its 20-strong workforce, the print shop produces items such as invitations, labels, brochures, and postcards. It also prints special papers for customers from the automotive industry and the telecommunications, banking, and financial sectors.
“Printing on special papers with a pearly luster coating is particularly popular with our customers. We are also able to deliver faster because, instead of processing just 10 sets of plates a day as we did previously, we now manage 30,” continues Liuping. In addition to the GTO, the print shop also operates an SORS two-color press and a Suprasetter CtP platesetter from Heidelberg.
Brazilian print shop Santha Fé Editora e Artes Gráficas in São Paulo has also been won over by the versatility, quality, and excellent availability of the Printmaster GTO.
“Installing our new GTO in summer 2010 won us new customers and enabled us to print high-quality flyers and catalogs,” underlines owner Emidio Carleti. “Its high resale value and low maintenance costs were among the factors that led us to buy this press,” he adds. The print shop’s 30 staff get through 15 to 20 jobs with an average run length of 1,000 to 5,000 sheets each day
“Our print shop considers it extremely important to offer customers impressive quality, optimum reliability, and fair prices,” explains Ernst-Otto Jäger, one of the managing directors of Foto-Litho-Jäger in Kassel, Germany.
Founded in 1949, the print shop operates two Printmaster GTO 52 presses and has added digital printing to its portfolio. “We’d had nothing but positive experiences with our GTO 52 two-color press in terms of fast setup, smooth paper travel, and stable inking. In 2010, we therefore decided to add a GTO 52 four-color press with Prinect Classic Center, as the hourly rate can be kept very low for both presses and the GTO fits well into our overall concept,” explains Jäger.
