Says Sun Graphics, "When used in conjunction with its large-format platemaking system, the new Gigasetter will allow [the firm] to use a single set of films to produce flexo plates for printing of large boxes used for computers, electronics, and other industrial markets." In addition, reports the division, "[The operation] plans to produce plates for large-process, color, point-of-purchase displays used for retail promotions and films for other prepress applications requiring extra large formats."
According to Chris Morrissey, VP of sales & marketing at Sun Chemical, "In our market for packaging and displays, the demand for increased film size and quality has grown. After looking at all the large format equipment available to us, we determined that Barco's Gigasetter was exactly what we needed."
