[slug] => sedas-printing-upgrades-with-new-cron-ecrm-technology [body] => Seda’s Printing has upgraded its CTP to the CRON-ECRM 36G. The company's old system was becoming obsolete, so it started to look at alternative options.

And while the CTP system itself was a draw, for owner Seda Kangani, the real selling point was the plates.

“We didn’t get one with all the bells and whistles,” she notes. “It’s a manual system, not an automated one, but what really impressed us with CRON was the plates.”

Seda’s Printing is using the Blackwood plates from CRON-ECRM, and one of the big benefits was the fact that they can be cleaned with just soap and water, with no chemical washes necessary. “I am very health conscious,” says Kangani. “So, I wanted to make sure my equipment was as environmentally friendly as possible. I don’t like to use machines that require a lot of chemicals to develop and clean the plates. The CRON 36G was a great fit.”

As a bonus, Kangani notes, the plates are also far less expensive than her previous unit. She goes through an average of four boxes of 50 plates a month, for the same cost as she was paying her previous manufacturer for service alone — the first three years of service are free with CRON-ECRM CTP systems. And since the 36G is faster, with higher quality than her old system, she is finding additional savings in her production department as well. “I am saving a lot of time and money with this new system,” Kangani adds.

Today, about 80% of Kangani’s work is still done on her offset presses. “Sometimes it doesn’t matter how expensive it is, they want to do digital,” she notes. “It’s a bit shiny and has a different look from offset. But when people want quality, they want offset. They get more of the color and detail they are looking for. Sometimes, even if the job is only 1,000 copies I’ll put it on the offset press — it’s more beneficial to the customer to pay for the press time than to pay for clicks. I’m not a copy place — I’m a printer.”

“Seda’s Printing is a prime example of a printer evolving with the times,” says Tony Ruth, sales director, CRON-ECRM. “Seda Kangani has kept her business moving forward but also recognizes the benefits in not abandoning offset for the latest trendy technology. CRON-ECRM will continue to support our printers across the country and will continue to innovate CTP systems and plates to ensure the latest innovations apply equally to offset as they do to the digital side of the market.” [views] => 0 [published] => 1 [status] => 3 [priority] => 0 [publish_date] => 2018-04-03 13:59:00 [updated_at] => 2018-04-03 14:04:12 [last_updated_author] => 182417 [uploaded_by] => 0 [user_role_id] => 0 [custom_fields] => [] [custom_fields_old] => [splitcontent] => 1 [content_url] => [related_content_ids] => ["267595","272192","261818","267127","270667","264227","267714","267029","273208","263636","261054","259256","266587","264293","267983"] [is_show_company_name] => [created_at] => 2019-04-09 04:36:23 ) [2] => Content Object ( [className] => Content [contentLinks] => Array ( ) [belongsTo] => [contentIssue] => [id] => 277589 [pageNumber] => [offset] => [totalPages] => [last_query] => [last_sql] => [show_errors] => 1 [databaseServer] => Array ( [key] => master [host] => 172.24.16.232 [user] => rodpub_beta [pass] => MvQQzhse92k58yA [db] => rodpub_beta ) [tableName] => contents [content_type_id] => 2487 [resource_id] => 0 [author_id] => 0 [primary_issue_slug] => [author_name] => {"name":"","title":""} [magazine_id] => 11 [layout_id] => 0 [primary_image] => 165678 [primary_image_old] => [slider_image_id] => 165678 [banner_image] => 0 [title] => GEW warns against potential patent infringements [short_title] => [summary] => The company will actively investigate breaches of its patents and will file claims if infringements are identified. [slug] => gew-warns-against-potential-patent-infringements [body] => GEW, the manufacturer of UV curing systems for printing, coating and converting applications, has pronounced a stern warning against potential patent infringements.

“At GEW, innovation has been the driving force ever since the company started over 25 years ago as a small enterprise in Surrey, England,” explains Malcolm Rae, GEW’s managing director. “We have invested significant resources in product design and our manufacturing facility, and the ability to create exciting new technologies has made GEW a front-runner in our industry.”

As a designer and manufacturer of UV systems for the labeling and narrow web printing industries, GEW (EC) Limited invests heavily in research and innovation. Its proprietary technology is protected by intellectual property rights in a number of countries around the world, including the UK, USA and in Europe.

In particular, GEW is the owner of a UK Patent (GB 2495161), a European Patent (EP 2 709 849) and US Patent (No. 8,984,764) which protect technology embodied in GEW's E2C UV curing unit. The E2C unit uses a system of actively air-cooled shutter technology that results in the most powerful low energy UV curing system available for narrow web presses. As the owner of these patents, GEW has the exclusive right to use and supply this technology in the territories covered by those patents.

GEW has recently become aware that a Chinese company, Hot Good (HK) Co., Ltd, (known as HGUV) is manufacturing a UV curing unit that utilizes GEW's patented technology without GEW's consent. GEW states that the purchase, import or use of the HGUV curing unit (or a printing press on which it has been installed) within any of the territories covered by GEW's patents is highly likely to infringe GEW's patent rights. GEW takes any potential infringement of its intellectual property seriously. The company will actively investigate breaches of its patents and will file claims if infringements are identified.

Rae concludes, “We have an obligation to defend our intellectual property when we believe it has been infringed. Today’s clarification is a necessary measure to defend our valuable assets and expertise that our customers rely on for industry-leading UV curing technology. The message to our clients and the industry is: GEW will continue doing what we’ve always done best: develop robust innovative solutions to improve performance, efficiency and reliability of UV curing equipment. GEW will continue to offer unique solutions for the global benefit of businesses in the printing industry.” [views] => 0 [published] => 1 [status] => 3 [priority] => 0 [publish_date] => 2018-04-12 08:57:00 [updated_at] => 2018-06-15 10:56:20 [last_updated_author] => 142076 [uploaded_by] => 182417 [user_role_id] => 0 [custom_fields] => [] [custom_fields_old] => [splitcontent] => 1 [content_url] => [related_content_ids] => ["279167","274933","281556","44841","266587","281957","273894","282654","283189","272013","270693","272546","265655","265776","279038"] [is_show_company_name] => [created_at] => 2019-04-09 04:36:23 ) [3] => Content Object ( [className] => Content [contentLinks] => Array ( ) [belongsTo] => [contentIssue] => [id] => 279038 [pageNumber] => [offset] => [totalPages] => [last_query] => [last_sql] => [show_errors] => 1 [databaseServer] => Array ( [key] => master [host] => 172.24.16.232 [user] => rodpub_beta [pass] => MvQQzhse92k58yA [db] => rodpub_beta ) [tableName] => contents [content_type_id] => 2487 [resource_id] => 0 [author_id] => 0 [primary_issue_slug] => [author_name] => {"name":"","title":""} [magazine_id] => 11 [layout_id] => 0 [primary_image] => 166457 [primary_image_old] => [slider_image_id] => 166457 [banner_image] => 0 [title] => Gallus sets sights on Innovation Days 2018 [short_title] => [summary] => A new digital label printing system called Gallus Smartfire is going to debut this year. [slug] => gallus-sets-sights-on-innovation-days-2018 [body] => Gallus will be hosting the Gallus Innovation Days once again from June 26-28, where up to 1,000 visitors are expected to arrive at the company's headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

During Gallus Innovation Days 2018, Gallus and Heidelberg experts are showing how digitization will change the label business and how Gallus Ferd. Rüesch AG and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG are going to jointly support their customers in mastering this paradigm shift. In order to do so, Gallus will present a variety of new products, following this year’s motto, “Solutions for Printing Champions."

A new digital label printing system called Gallus Smartfire is going to debut this year, which will feature easy handling. This label press is designed for constantly changing short runs and represents an affordable solution for any label printer who is interested in going into digital label printing.

During hourly live demonstrations held in the new Print Media Centre Label, Gallus novelties in digital and conventional label printing are going to be presented. The Gallus Labelfire is going to be highlighted. Upstream, the press is newly equipped with a fully integrated screen printing unit. Its applied screen white in full opacity can be used for transparent substrates and guarantees the quality standard for this digital label printing system.

In addition, the conventional Gallus label presses will be presented with additional features. For the first time, the new Gallus Labelmaster Advanced will be seen with an automatic transverse and longitudinal register control. The Gallus RCS 430 is equipped with flying imprint and extremely fast UV ink drying thanks to a UV booster, and the Gallus ECS 340 is featured with web shifting for the manufacture of multi-layer labels.

On top of that, the Gallus screen printing department will be presenting the whole production process of a Screeny A-Line printing plate, from screen exposure with the new Phoenix UV-LED exposing system by Heidelberg, to the development of a new automated washing and drying system by Gallus Screeny to the final assembly of the ready-to-print screen printing plate.

Heidelberg is slated to present several topics at the event, as well. Three-dimensional objects are going to be printed on and personalized on the Omnifire 250. Furthermore, Heidelberg covers in-mold printing with the rotative diecutter Speedmaster XL 160-DD, which is up to three times faster in terms of production and make-ready time, as well as more economic in tool costs than a similar flatbed diecutter. CERM is going to introduce new mobile solutions with its business management software.

More than 30 partnering companies are going to present their products and services for the label business in Hall 1, which exceeds all records of former Gallus Innovation Days.
Registrations for the Gallus Innovation Days 2018 can be made here.

Two years ago, more than 800 visitors from all over the world travelled to Switzerland to attend the Gallus Innovation Days. This year, Gallus will continue this success story on an even bigger exhibition area.

She goes through an average of four boxes of 50 plates a month, for the same cost as she was paying her previous manufacturer for service alone — the first three years of service are free with CRON-ECRM CTP systems. And since the 36G is faster, with higher quality than her old system, she is finding additional savings in her production department as well. “I am saving a lot of time and money with this new system,” Kangani adds.

Today, about 80% of Kangani’s work is still done on her offset presses. “Sometimes it doesn’t matter how expensive it is, they want to do digital,” she notes. “It’s a bit shiny and has a different look from offset. But when people want quality, they want offset. They get more of the color and detail they are looking for. Sometimes, even if the job is only 1,000 copies I’ll put it on the offset press — it’s more beneficial to the customer to pay for the press time than to pay for clicks. I’m not a copy place — I’m a printer.”

“Seda’s Printing is a prime example of a printer evolving with the times,” says Tony Ruth, sales director, CRON-ECRM. “Seda Kangani has kept her business moving forward but also recognizes the benefits in not abandoning offset for the latest trendy technology. CRON-ECRM will continue to support our printers across the country and will continue to innovate CTP systems and plates to ensure the latest innovations apply equally to offset as they do to the digital side of the market.” [views] => 0 [published] => 1 [status] => 3 [priority] => 0 [publish_date] => 2018-04-03 13:59:00 [updated_at] => 2018-04-03 14:04:12 [last_updated_author] => 182417 [uploaded_by] => 0 [user_role_id] => 0 [custom_fields] => [] [custom_fields_old] => [splitcontent] => 1 [content_url] => [related_content_ids] => ["267595","272192","261818","267127","270667","264227","267714","267029","273208","263636","261054","259256","266587","264293","267983"] [is_show_company_name] => [created_at] => 2019-04-09 04:36:23 ) [2] => Content Object ( [className] => Content [contentLinks] => Array ( ) [belongsTo] => [contentIssue] => [id] => 277589 [pageNumber] => [offset] => [totalPages] => [last_query] => [last_sql] => [show_errors] => 1 [databaseServer] => Array ( [key] => master [host] => 172.24.16.232 [user] => rodpub_beta [pass] => MvQQzhse92k58yA [db] => rodpub_beta ) [tableName] => contents [content_type_id] => 2487 [resource_id] => 0 [author_id] => 0 [primary_issue_slug] => [author_name] => {"name":"","title":""} [magazine_id] => 11 [layout_id] => 0 [primary_image] => 165678 [primary_image_old] => [slider_image_id] => 165678 [banner_image] => 0 [title] => GEW warns against potential patent infringements [short_title] => [summary] => The company will actively investigate breaches of its patents and will file claims if infringements are identified. [slug] => gew-warns-against-potential-patent-infringements [body] => GEW, the manufacturer of UV curing systems for printing, coating and converting applications, has pronounced a stern warning against potential patent infringements.

“At GEW, innovation has been the driving force ever since the company started over 25 years ago as a small enterprise in Surrey, England,” explains Malcolm Rae, GEW’s managing director. “We have invested significant resources in product design and our manufacturing facility, and the ability to create exciting new technologies has made GEW a front-runner in our industry.”

As a designer and manufacturer of UV systems for the labeling and narrow web printing industries, GEW (EC) Limited invests heavily in research and innovation. Its proprietary technology is protected by intellectual property rights in a number of countries around the world, including the UK, USA and in Europe.

In particular, GEW is the owner of a UK Patent (GB 2495161), a European Patent (EP 2 709 849) and US Patent (No. 8,984,764) which protect technology embodied in GEW's E2C UV curing unit. The E2C unit uses a system of actively air-cooled shutter technology that results in the most powerful low energy UV curing system available for narrow web presses. As the owner of these patents, GEW has the exclusive right to use and supply this technology in the territories covered by those patents.

GEW has recently become aware that a Chinese company, Hot Good (HK) Co., Ltd, (known as HGUV) is manufacturing a UV curing unit that utilizes GEW's patented technology without GEW's consent. GEW states that the purchase, import or use of the HGUV curing unit (or a printing press on which it has been installed) within any of the territories covered by GEW's patents is highly likely to infringe GEW's patent rights. GEW takes any potential infringement of its intellectual property seriously. The company will actively investigate breaches of its patents and will file claims if infringements are identified.

Rae concludes, “We have an obligation to defend our intellectual property when we believe it has been infringed. Today’s clarification is a necessary measure to defend our valuable assets and expertise that our customers rely on for industry-leading UV curing technology. The message to our clients and the industry is: GEW will continue doing what we’ve always done best: develop robust innovative solutions to improve performance, efficiency and reliability of UV curing equipment. GEW will continue to offer unique solutions for the global benefit of businesses in the printing industry.” [views] => 0 [published] => 1 [status] => 3 [priority] => 0 [publish_date] => 2018-04-12 08:57:00 [updated_at] => 2018-06-15 10:56:20 [last_updated_author] => 142076 [uploaded_by] => 182417 [user_role_id] => 0 [custom_fields] => [] [custom_fields_old] => [splitcontent] => 1 [content_url] => [related_content_ids] => ["279167","274933","281556","44841","266587","281957","273894","282654","283189","272013","270693","272546","265655","265776","279038"] [is_show_company_name] => [created_at] => 2019-04-09 04:36:23 ) [3] => Content Object ( [className] => Content [contentLinks] => Array ( ) [belongsTo] => [contentIssue] => [id] => 279038 [pageNumber] => [offset] => [totalPages] => [last_query] => [last_sql] => [show_errors] => 1 [databaseServer] => Array ( [key] => master [host] => 172.24.16.232 [user] => rodpub_beta [pass] => MvQQzhse92k58yA [db] => rodpub_beta ) [tableName] => contents [content_type_id] => 2487 [resource_id] => 0 [author_id] => 0 [primary_issue_slug] => [author_name] => {"name":"","title":""} [magazine_id] => 11 [layout_id] => 0 [primary_image] => 166457 [primary_image_old] => [slider_image_id] => 166457 [banner_image] => 0 [title] => Gallus sets sights on Innovation Days 2018 [short_title] => [summary] => A new digital label printing system called Gallus Smartfire is going to debut this year. [slug] => gallus-sets-sights-on-innovation-days-2018 [body] => Gallus will be hosting the Gallus Innovation Days once again from June 26-28, where up to 1,000 visitors are expected to arrive at the company's headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

During Gallus Innovation Days 2018, Gallus and Heidelberg experts are showing how digitization will change the label business and how Gallus Ferd. Rüesch AG and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG are going to jointly support their customers in mastering this paradigm shift. In order to do so, Gallus will present a variety of new products, following this year’s motto, “Solutions for Printing Champions."

A new digital label printing system called Gallus Smartfire is going to debut this year, which will feature easy handling. This label press is designed for constantly changing short runs and represents an affordable solution for any label printer who is interested in going into digital label printing.

During hourly live demonstrations held in the new Print Media Centre Label, Gallus novelties in digital and conventional label printing are going to be presented. The Gallus Labelfire is going to be highlighted. Upstream, the press is newly equipped with a fully integrated screen printing unit. Its applied screen white in full opacity can be used for transparent substrates and guarantees the quality standard for this digital label printing system.

In addition, the conventional Gallus label presses will be presented with additional features. For the first time, the new Gallus Labelmaster Advanced will be seen with an automatic transverse and longitudinal register control. The Gallus RCS 430 is equipped with flying imprint and extremely fast UV ink drying thanks to a UV booster, and the Gallus ECS 340 is featured with web shifting for the manufacture of multi-layer labels.

On top of that, the Gallus screen printing department will be presenting the whole production process of a Screeny A-Line printing plate, from screen exposure with the new Phoenix UV-LED exposing system by Heidelberg, to the development of a new automated washing and drying system by Gallus Screeny to the final assembly of the ready-to-print screen printing plate.

Heidelberg is slated to present several topics at the event, as well. Three-dimensional objects are going to be printed on and personalized on the Omnifire 250. Furthermore, Heidelberg covers in-mold printing with the rotative diecutter Speedmaster XL 160-DD, which is up to three times faster in terms of production and make-ready time, as well as more economic in tool costs than a similar flatbed diecutter. CERM is going to introduce new mobile solutions with its business management software.

More than 30 partnering companies are going to present their products and services for the label business in Hall 1, which exceeds all records of former Gallus Innovation Days.
Registrations for the Gallus Innovation Days 2018 can be made here.

Two years ago, more than 800 visitors from all over the world travelled to Switzerland to attend the Gallus Innovation Days. This year, Gallus will continue this success story on an even bigger exhibition area.
