Following rigorous testing of four different technologies, and three factory visits, a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV press has recently been commissioned at Etiquetas Adhegraf, the label printing division of Grupo Hispagraf, in Madrid, Spain.
Adhegraf services a variety of industries, however, 80% of production is dedicated to pharmaceutical products.
'Productivity and quality are obviously important to us as a company, the key advantage being the value we can pass on to our clients,' said David Perez, general manager. 'Through our in-depth analysis, we confirmed that the press is very easy to operate, offers high speeds, job changes are simple and maintenance tasks are significantly reduced. Those time savings are passed on to the customer through decreased delivery lead times, so we're offering a better service. All this is achieved whilst simultaneously providing outstanding quality.'
Customer support provided by HTGraf, Screen's local representative, combined with remote service from Screen Service Engineers was also a factor, according to Mr Perez. 'With our experience of Screen CTP equipment, we know the equipment is reliable but service is quick when it is required.'
Also crucial to Adhegraf was the repeatable print quality and precise accuracy particularly required for pharmaceutical products. 'Not only can we achieve a very high percentage of Pantone colours on the L350UV press, but the colour and the print is extremely stable. Between repetitions of the same job, we see the same quality from the first to the last page,' Mr Perez commented. 'Our customers' quality parameters are more and more exhaustive, security solutions are extremely important so it's crucial our customers can rely on the quality of our products from the first output to the last,' he concluded.
