January 2011: Typoekdotiki SA Achieves Better Proof to Press Match and Immediate ROI With Alwan Print StandardizerTypoekdotiki SA Achieves Better Proof to Press Match and Immediate ROI With Alwan Print Standardizer
Lyon, January 2011. Commercial and Newspaper printer Typoekdotiki SA has secured an immediate return on its investment in Alwan Color Expertise’s Print Standardizer. The Greece-based company won new customers soon after adopting the solution, offsetting its initial financial outlay.
Typoekdotiki has been using Print Standardizer 1.0 and reaping the benefits of the software for the last eighteen months. One year later, the company was keen to implement Print Standardizer 2.0 because many of its enhancements have been developed with their expressed needs in mind.
Michail Kaloudis, Quality Manager at Typoekdotiki comments: “We were very impressed with the first version of Print Standardizer. It allowed us to calibrate our sheetfed, coldset and heatset presses to achieve standard printing conditions on coated, uncoated, lwc, sc, mwc, mfc and standard newspaper grades.”
But with increasing importance being placed on quality control, the company needed to follow-up production in real-time. It asked Alwan to develop the reporting system so that it monitored the print activity in the pressroom.
