Swaziland-based company, Print Design, has moved into the computer-to-plate arena with their purchase of a Kodak Trendsetter 400 from Antalis South Africa.
I’ve been working with Wilton Nkambule, the company’s owner, for more than 10 years now and his decision to advance into the CTP arena was well considered and perfectly timed, said Mel Ellis, Antalis.
The Kodak CTP devices deliver exceptional productivity and image quality proving to be a solid business investment. Print Design made a wise choice with this equipment because the Kodak Trendsetter is well known in the printing industry for their reliability and easy maintenance.
The companys purchase of a Kodak CTP machine is also coupled with the Kodak Thermal Direct plates, which eliminates the use of a messy, expensive plate processor.
We’ve chosen to go this route as it saves on the use of chemicals, the running costs of a processor and, eventually, the processor itself which gets damaged because of the corrosive nature of the chemicals. What’s more by eliminating the use of chemicals we are doing our bit to reduce the negative impact on our environment, said Wilton Nkambule of Print Design
We have the utmost faith in Antalis’ experience and business acumen. I am well aware of their strong commitment and support of the Kodak range and I believe that our choice is the best fit. We are excited at the opportunities, changes and challenges this move will offer us and we are already embracing new business avenues.
