Owner Joe Cantarella opened the company 15 years ago, and he specialized in platemaking technologies for the flexo industry. In an attempt to increase efficiency and improve turnaround time for customers, JT Prepress Express has purchased a new Esko CDI with HD flexo Glunz & Jensen 205C all-in-one platemaker.
“The relationship we have with CT Graphic Arts is one of trust, loyalty and deep knowledge of the flexo industry in general,” says Cantarella. “We look forward to a continued relationship with CTGA, and the future of flexo products to come.”
JT Prepress will utilize Asahi flexo digital plates, supplied by CT Graphic Arts.
Cantarella expects the digital plates to open up opportunities for his business and customers. “It was about three years ago that Esko’s HD technology moved to a place where it would make a better digital plate than analog, and my philosophy has always been in this trade that you either lead, follow or get out of the way,” adds Cantarella. “Between the Esko CDI, Glunz & Jensen 205C and the new Asahi TOP (with pinning top dot technology), we are now prepared to lead the industry in cutting-edge prepress services and fully optimized flexo plates.”
