Generation Printing Enhances Efficiency with KODAK MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter


Rochester, NY.- For Generation Printing, maintaining its steady growth requires continuously increasing productivity and efficiency. The full service commercial printing company in Vancouver, which produces high end jobs for a range of customers, recently moved its prepress operation to the next level with the installation of a KODAK MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter, V Speed.

“A key to our success centers around utilizing devices and software that automate steps in the production process, while helping us provide our customers with superb quality printing,” said Edward Kouwenhoven, who owns Generation Printing with his brother, Rob. “We selected the MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter based on its combination of automation features and advanced imaging technology.”

The MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter offers inline punch and a full range of other automation options, from semiautomatic to full automation. The modular design allows for advanced automation with an autoloader with a single cassette unit holding 100 plates or a multi-cassette unit that can hold up to 500 plates. The MAGNUS 800 QUANTUM Platesetter provides exceptional imaging quality using KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology and KODAK STACCATO Screening and produces up to 40 plates per hour.

Generation Printing uses the KODAK ELECTRA XD Thermal Plate, which delivers impressive prepress and on press stability for excellent resolution, run length, and color control throughout the full press run. With consistent dot to dot reproduction, the ELECTRA XD Plate provides outstanding prepress latitude, helping users reduce manual intervention and cut makeready time.

To drive automation throughout its shop, Generation Printing utilizes the KODAK PRINERGY CONNECT Workflow, a fully integrated, highly automated unified workflow management solution. Other solutions from Kodak that Generation Printing relies on to enhance efficiency include the KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal System. A Web portal into the KODAK PRINERGY Workflow System, the INSITE Prepress Portal System streamlines job submission, job status tracking, and remote content proofing or approval. Generation Printing also incorporates the KODAK MATCHPRINT Inkjet Proofing System, which brings the next level of workflow connectivity and color precision to drop on demand (DOD) inkjet proofing.
