DeltaHage Install New Color Press
The Hague-based printer DeltaHage recently expanded its printing capacity with the installation of a new KBA eight-color press by Enfocus PowerSwitch.
"The new installations have consequences for the prepress, as all the machines need to continue working at a constant pace," commented Ron Ebing, Head of Prepress at DeltaHage. "A second CTP installation guarantees the plate production, but a streamlined input of the material from the prepress division is equally as important."
About three years ago, DeltaHage investigated how to automate its workflow. This would allow the company to more efficiently process its steadily growing order stream at its prepress division: "PowerSwitch has helped streamline our operation by standardising and automating the workflow at crucial points. And because Enfocus has an excellent reputation in the industry, we know we can rely on them to respond quickly to ad-hoc software developments and issue timely updates," added Ebing.
The application of PowerSwitch at DeltaHage has been expanded gradually. "It is crucial to keep in mind that automation is a tool and not a goal," explains Ebing. "This is why PowerSwitch is managed by two prepress people and not by programmers. On-the-job staff use PowerSwitch in a very creative and practical manner. We immediately opted for the extended range of the Switch package so that we could expand without limitations."
