TUNG KONG SECURITY PRINTING CO., LTD IN CHINA ADOPTS DUPONT™ CYREL® DIGITAL FAST
Tung Kong Security Printing Co., Ltd, a leading company in security ticket printing in Jinan, Shandong province, China, recently adopted DuPont Cyrel® Digital FAST to improve plate quality, as well as shorten processing time. There are now more than ten DuPont® Cryel® FAST systems used throughout China.
Tung Kong Security Printing Co., Ltd, is a well-established printing firm in Jinan, Shandong for over 14 years, with four manufacturing sites across China. The company is a market leader in printing and servicing security tickets, as well as commercial products like labels, RFID and DMs. As recently as December 2009, Tung Kong moved into flexographic printing with an OMET flexographic press. Prior to that, they focused on offset and letterpress printing.
Running a new flexographic printing line presented many challenges for Tung Kong, namely in understanding the differences between old and new technologies and the quick set-up of an in-house platemaking facility. Mrs. Li Aizheng, purchasing manager and Mr. Zheng Xingtao, prepress manager, admitted that the actual process was indeed a challenge, especially under tight timing. They wanted a shortened workflow and a system that was easy to operate. DuPont Cyrel® FAST met the need and it didn’t take long for Tung Kong to produce plates on a large scale.
They already had an Esko CDI2530 (4000dip-ready) system. When combined with the Cyrel® FAST system, Tung Kong was able to produce hi-resolution jobs with flexography.
With the experience of installing several systems already in China, the DuPont China team completed the logistical preparations, installation, and operational training smoothly and within the promised deadline of April 2010. Mr. Zheng, the prepress manager from Tung Kong, was pleased to be fully capable of producing hi-resolution print jobs so soon with his new system.
