It invested in a system consisting of an Avalon platesetter, Arkana smart processor and Energy Elite Eco thermal printing plates, in addition to PressTune software that controls and stabilizes the printing process.

Chroma (chroma.pl) has cooperated with Agfa Graphics (agfagraphics.com) since mid-2015, when it started using its first Agfa Graphics CtP system. Another platesetter, an Avalon, followed. Now, all printing plates are sourced from Agfa Graphics. As of the first quarter of 2018, these are thermal Energy Elite Eco plates.

Along with their implementation, two ecological Arkana processors appeared in the printing house. "These were the first elements of our ECO³ program to be implemented by Chroma”, says Michał Śliz, Managing Director of the Polish branch of Agfa Graphics. “We are pleased that we managed to convince them to implement an innovative and energy-saving solution, which at the same time ensures a cleaner production of printing plates and saves time and costs in prepress. "

Krzysztof Raczkowski, chairman of the board of Chroma adds: "Agfa is such a reliable and stable business partner for us that we didn’t need a lot of persuasion to implement Energy Elite Eco printing plates with an Arkana smart processor. Sustainable development is very important for our company. We have been investing in printing machines based on H-UV technology for years, and Agfa's ecological solutions in the prepress area are well in line with this trend. What's more: they bring us, as a leader in the field of online printing in Poland, measurable economic and time savings".

Arkana & Energy Elite Eco saving on water, chemistry, energy and maintenance
Arkana and Energy Elite Eco are two of the main elements of the ECO³ program that Agfa offers its customers to achieve more economical, eco-friendly and convenient operations. "The Arkana developer significantly reduces the amount of water and energy needed. It makes printing plate production much cleaner, while maintenance is much simpler and shorter; it also takes up less space,” emphasizes Michał Śliz.

Together, the Arkana and Energy Elite Eco printing plates are a real power combo. "The benefits they offer make more and more printers, including those still using conventional imaging machines, switch to Energy Elite Eco," continues Michał Śliz. “Their characteristics also fit with UV or H-UV technology, which Chroma uses in its daily production."

As Krzysztof Raczkowski points out, the implementation of Agfa's innovative, comprehensive solution was also supposed to increase the bandwidth of the offset prepress: "We wanted to be able to prepare even more printing plates at the same time. We process around 1500-2000 orders a day, carrying out even 25-30 jobs on one 8-color B1 machine during a 7-hour shift. We have eight full-sized printing presses in various color configurations. Hence, to ‘feed’ them all efficiently and seamlessly, we first invested in Agfa’s high-performance CtP systems, and after that in their environmentally friendly Arkana processors."

PressTune permanent quality control for a stable production
The next stage of implementation of ECO³ elements was the installation of PressTune software, designed to optimize and stabilize the printing process. This system collects real-time data from printing machines, analyzes it and creates reports for production managers. "On the one hand, it provides quality control of the printed jobs, on the other by providing information on production on an ongoing basis it allows immediate corrections”, says Maciej Baur, Product Manager Agfa Graphics Poland. “It also allows you to create reports which give an insight into the history of the printing jobs. With such a huge number of employees as Chroma, it is a very useful tool. "

"In our case, the implementation of PressTune was first of all intended to ensure a stable, predictable and safe production,” says Krzysztof Raczkowski. “It has succeeded: PressTune certainly helps our prepress operators to control quality and if necessary to react instantly."

"We strive to cooperate with reliable and stable business partners. Based on several years of experience, I can say that Agfa is one of them. I mean not only the high level of its solutions, including hardware, consumables and software, but the professionalism of their after-sales service as well. Their technical support and service, also online, is a key element of our cooperation”, concludes Krzysztof Raczkowski.
