Printbylaser returns to Heidelberg for second Suprasetter

Just one year on from buying a Suprasetter A75 platesetter, Tyne-and-Wear-based Printbylaser has returned to Heidelberg for a second machine. The new Suprasetter will be swapped in for a three-year-old Suprasetter H75, and will feature a double cassette loader. 

The return trip follows on from the installation of a number of Heidelberg's Prinect workflow add-ons, including Color Toolbox and Pressroom Manager, and MD Chris Murley said the company planned to undertake an ISO 12647 certification process with Heidelberg later this year. 

Murley said the new investment was as a result of having experienced the advances incorporated into Heidelberg's latest-generation CTP devices. "We love the Saphira chem-free plate, which just requires a wash-gum device," he added. "It's fully tested and it complements the equipment well. We trialled other processless plates, but they didn't work for us."
