LITHO PRINTING

Good genes replicate themselves perfectly and in our sheetfed Litho division this is our primary objective.

Starting with an ISO certified proof, our minders are given and exact target to work to. This is made considerably easier by using Alwin colour management software which allows communication between press and plate setter. Plates are adapted to the individual characteristic of each press unit so all screen values are reproduced faithfully at the correct solid densities. Press sheets are measured on the run to stay within ISO tolerences for both wet and dry readings.

As the first Cape Town printer to install a Cron computer to conventional plate system, more exacting detail work is possible than with thermal or UV plate setters giving us the genetic edge in any format.

The wide range of materials available for the sheetfed Litho presses provides an almost infinate range of product possibilities, limited only by the designers creativity.
