Technology

We use a mix of cutting-edge and/or proven technology tailored to each particular process. The pre-press department works traditionally on state-of-the-art Apple computers, using pre-press software from ESKO and ADOBE. We use the latest test and measurement technology for testing and quality control.

In addition to digital plate imaging using ESKO CDIs, in autumn 2013 we started using the KODAK Flexcel NX System – and we are already convinced of its value. Thanks to its new, high-resolution digital plate imaging technology in combination with its outstanding NX plate material, the KODAK Flexcel NX System makes it possible to differentiate even the finest nuances in the highlights. Additionally, the KODAK DigiCap Technology gives the NX plates exceptionally good ink-transfer qualities. Solid densities rise in printing, significantly increasing the colour space and in certain circumstances even making it possible to cut down on spot colours. A further advantage is that line and raster shapes no longer need to be separated from each other. The NX plate material also offers noticeably longer lifetimes, with longer intervals between cleaning.
