Southport Printing Co. is proud to add Australia’s first prepress UK PressProfiler

Southport Printing Co. has installed Australia’s first Prepress UK PressProfiler for its Heidelberg SM52 press with owner Andrew Kelly saying the investment, which included a remote installation and calibration service, was great value.

The PressProfiler is an ink key pre-setting system that examines digital files from any workflow and generates ink key pre-setting data to save set-up time on offset litho printing press at job change over.

Prepress UK says while PressProfiler can feed directly into the press console of newer machines, integration with older equipment can be achieved in conjunction with Prepress UK’s unique CardWriter package.

“PressProfiler is a product that represents great value. To do the same with the press manufacturers own branded package would cost five times as much. The team at Prepress UK do a fantastic job at a great price,” Kelly said.

“We were particularly impressed by the remote installation and calibration service. Faster and just as effective, but significantly more affordable, than sending an engineer to do the job. The profiles and ink sweeps are extremely accurate, saving both time and money.”

Prepress UK sales director Nic Chapman said Southport Print Co. now joins other existing PressProfiler customers in UK, USA, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, South Africa, Israel and Ireland.

“It is a pleasure to supply a UK developed product to a printer in Australia. We were delighted to get the initial lead for this sale from our advertising campaign for our dedicated website,” Chapman said.

“We are looking forward to having discussions with other Australian printers seeking effective software solutions. Australian printers certainly understand print and can appreciate products that make financial sense as well as making their life easier and their production more effective. We would like to think of this as the first of many installations.”

Southport Printing Co. is a family owned business and offers a full-service print offering including digital, offset, large format, marketing and web design.
