Rachna Prints, a Bhivandi-based start-up focused on pre-press, recognised an opportunity to help its customers in the very large format print market improve their productivity, while producing higher quality printing for their clients. The company has chosen to migrate away from its conventional plate exposing process and has invested in a Kodak Trendsetter 1600, a very large format (VLF) CTP platesetter.
In an interview with PrintWeek India, Ashish Vazirani, managing director at Rachna Prints, explained why they decided to make the switch “We were using the conventional plate exposing technology for which film is required. Procuring a film positive of 40x56inch is expensive and a difficult task for our customer and us. Moreover, the quality achieved by using the conventional method is not very high. The important factor is time. The Kodak VLF platesetter will help in reducing the time and saving money. It will provide higher quality printing with faster turnaround and more control on the press.”
