UK customers invest in CtS systems
As sole UK distributors for CST GmbH, Natgraph have enjoyed considerable success during the last year, with three installations and two more units on order.
One of the three recent installations has been completed at Image Data Group, in Willerby East Yorkshire - a £20m turnover company employing 250 people across the UK, providing services from creative design to print production, digital development, sourcing, fulfilment and distribution.
Image Data Group have extensive experience on pre-press systems for large format screenprinting, having used conventional exposure, projection camera and computer to screen (CtS) systems. A recent re-location exercise saw the company build a dedicated factory extension specifically for screenprint production, prompting the CtS investment.
MD, Paul Price visited Germany to see the CST DLE screen imaging system in operation and quickly recognised the quality of construction, capability and outstanding value of this machine over their existing CtS equipment. The return on investment of the CST unit and outstanding resolution when compared to the competition made the decision a simple one.
In addition to the CST machine Image Data also ordered a large Vertical Screen Frame Drying Cabinet from Natgraph, as well as a Coating machine and Automatic Screen Development machine made by Grunig, who Natgraph also represent in the UK.
Image Data Chairman, Roger Birkin, stated “This emerging technology has proved to be vital for a dynamic and responsive print company like ours where quick turnaround is of paramount importance. A considerable bonus for us is the surprisingly low cost of ownership of this high-tech machinery. We are also delighted that this equipment is supported by Natgraph”
CST GmbH will be exhibiting at FESPA – Stand C22N
