Geostick is one of the largest label printing companies in Europe. They have recently acquired the automatic flexo plate mounter SAMM 800 2.0 and it helped them to significantly increase the efficiency of the prepress department!
Freek van der Knaap, manager of Geostick group, stated about the SAMM 800.20:
“Before purchasing the SAMM 800 2.0 we were mounting plates with manual mounting machines. With these machines, it was very hard to achieve accurate plate mounting, plates were mounted straight or pulled wrong way. That’s why in a lot of cases we had to remount plates to achieve good mounting quality. Of course this process was very time – consuming and that was the reason why the efficiency of the prepress department was lacking. For that reason we started seeking for an automatic mounting machine that can help us to overcome these challenges.
When we started to search for an automatic mounting machine, our choice immediately fell on AV Flexologic because the company has the longest experience in an automatic plate mounting. Subsequently, we got in touch with AV Flexologic and purchased the SAMM 800 2.0 automatic flexo plate mounter.
We are really happy we invested in the SAMM 800 2.0. The efficiency of our pre-press department significantly increased. Thanks to the SAMM, we don’t need to remount plates multiple times to achieve a high accuracy! The positioning and mounting are done automatically by the machine. The machine mounts plates extremely accurately and very fast.
And, also, I want to mention that the ROI was achieved within 2 years!”
