Sheffield-based Northend has replaced an ageing UV CTP system with a Cron 36G+ thermal system from SOS. The move helps with the company’s current drive towards more environment-friendly production, but also brings a boost to quality and reliability.
Based in Penryn near Falmouth, Booths Print is one of the oldest print-related businesses in Cornwall, celebrating its 50th year in 2020. The latest SOS digital installation at Booths is a Konica Minolta AccurioPress C3080 production machine. According to Steve Booth the investment was prompted by a need to improve short run performance.
York’s Fulprint has been offering a professional print service since 1985. The company has always had a ‘can do’ approach and offers a wide range of print services to an even wider customer base. “We have about 600 customers – and our biggest customer accounts for only about 10% of turnover. Our work profile is very varied,” says Director Frankie Curran.
With a 40-year history, LGP Ltd is has become one of the foremost printers in its home city of Leeds. In January 2017 the company moved to a new 20,000sq ft premises, prompted by the need to house a new five colour SRA1 Ryobi RMGT press. Not only did this represent a move up in sheet size, it also meant the adoption of LED-UV drying technology which MD Philip Stead considers a necessity in today’s market.
RAP Spiderweb Printers of Oldham has just installed a new B2 CTP system – the Cron 36H – along with RealPro workflow software, from SOS (Service Offset Supplies). When the company decided to replace an ageing Screen lo-chem CTP system, several contenders were invited to pitch, with some disappointing results, according to Director James Tattum.
