INSITE works with Mitchell Press’ Prinergy workflow management system to ensure changes are incorporated instantly, ultimately saving the client both time and money.

PRINERGY Automated Workflow Management System. 

Integrating with our INSITE Prepress Portal, our world-leading PRINERGY automated workflow management system streamlines communication and production processes, improves turn-around and reduces costs. Essentially, this system enables us to centralize control over our print manufacturing process, such as sharing job data (like imposition and page assignment) with our pre-press, production and management teams. This automated workflow system, combined with our business management system, enables Mitchell Press to provide faster, better quality, and more economical print solutions for our customers.

SQUAREspot Clarity Enhancement

Prepress qualityGet sharper, more vibrant images with Mitchell Press’ high-resolution, 10,000 dpi SQUAREspot technology. While most laser systems deliver a laser spot with an effective diameter of about 1500 dpi with a fuzzy Gaussian profile, Mitchell Press’ SQUAREspot Technology provides an amazing high resolution of 10,000 dpi, virtually eliminating the blurry dot profile. This enhanced dot profile, combined with SQUAREspot’s Dynamic Autofocus, Automatic Temperature Compensation and Geometric Correction, provide the optimum in image stability, reliability and accuracy.

Ink Optimizing Colour Management

Vibrancy is paramount. Consistency is crucial. As a G7 Master Printer, Mitchell Press knows how to sharpen your images, maintain consistency of colour throughout an entire run year after year, and while we are at it, reduce make-ready and start-up waste. The secret is in our computerized Ink Optimizing Solution, which uses more Black than Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow in our print calibration processes.

MAXTONE Screening

While the industry standard is to print at a resolution of 150 lines per inch (LPI), Mitchell Press prints at 210 lines per inch. While this results in a level of quality that surpasses that of the average commercial printer, it’s not the end of the story. Mitchell Press also uses MAXTONE Screening. This hybrid process, which combines the best of both stochastic and conventional screening technology, enables pin-sharp detail and crisp print reproduction to create a visual representation of 300 line screen or greater. This is something that not many web printers worldwide can achieve.

Magnus Quantum Platesetter

Mitchell Press provides high-performance plate making with our Kodak Magnus 800 platesetter, offering top image quality and speeds of 62 plates per hour. The platesetter, combined with our MAXTONE screening and Kodak Sonora plates, delivers screen ruling over 200 lines per inch, with results that you have to see to believe.

Process-Free Sonora Plates

Our environmentally-friendly Sonora process free plates by Kodak eliminate processing and chemistry from plate-making all together. This means that not only are we saving thousands of litres of water every year, but we are also preventing the release of toxic chemicals into our drains.

So we can help to improve our environment, and still maximize print quality and efficiency.

We have both Komori and Heidelberg presses, which print both 4 and 5 colour jobs, complete with inline register-control systems, scanning densitometers and closed-loop color correction, as well as a multitude of inline options such as coating, folding, perforating, gluing and trimming.
