DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY, June -- Printhaus, a leading U.K. commercial printer, ordered a new KODAK MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter at drupa 2008. The Northampton business that delivers everything from creative concepts to direct mail and fulfillment, also signed on to upgrade to KODAK PRINERGY Workflow System Version 4.0 with connections to KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal System to improve web communication and collaboration with customers.

“Printhaus promises our customers that we’ll stay ahead of the technology curve. These investments will further improve our productivity and help us meet even tighter turn around times,” said Kelly Harris, Managing Director, Printhaus. “The new PRINERGY System with connectivity to INSITE Software will keep us keep moving with our customers’ requirements to do more business over the Internet. We’ll be able to link with our existing MIS system, so we expect to automate many processes.”

The KODAK MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter employs a new, advanced thermal head that generates double the laser power of earlier MAGNUS Platesetters. The new thermal head not only increases the speed of plate production, but also provides broader imaging latitude and higher stability in case of plate sensitivity variations. KODAK Platesetters utilize KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology to minimize the impact of routine prepress variations, and deliver stable and reliable plates that stay within tight print manufacturing tolerances.

The KODAK MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter has an output capacity of up to 60 eight up plates per hour and uses KODAK STACCATO Screening for high quality color reproduction. Printhaus will also be deploying the KODAK Multi-Cassette Unit, which can hold up to 500 plates at a time. The company is looking forward to improved productivity, automation and imaging performance from this new installation.

For Printhaus, which is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2009, the MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter and PRINERGY software purchases are the next step in a long partnership with Kodak. Printhaus was the site of the first U.K. commercial installation of the PRINERGY System in 2000 and has been making plates on KODAK Platesetters for years.

“We’ve got a long history with Kodak, so we’re looking forward to the reliability and consistency of Kodak service that we know comes with these investments,” Harris said.
