Halstan Investment... an update

The new state of the art CTP (computer to plate) and prepress upgrades have bedded in very successfully, showing the planned improvements in productivity through the technology; but more importantly, the staff utilisation of the machine. The process management improvement from the operators have been outstanding with output has increasing by 75%, Maintenance time has reduced by a similar margin together with a huge saving on chemical usage and waste. Both benefits have also provided a positive impact of the environment and will be noted in the ISO 14001 Environmental Report.

The new investment in Digital Binding has been a huge success and allow us to offer an improved lay flat product. Customer response to this unique style of binding has been extremely positive and our research in this area has been most worthwhile. The successful implementation of the new digital sewing line and true lay flat binding is with thanks to the efforts of the staff at Halstan.

We are continually looking to make further exciting investments thus improve our offerings to the marketplace. Updates will follow…
