In the first stage of the process, the file which has been designed by the customer or the Atico Printing House is transferred to the lithography section of the printing house. The lithography and machines of the Atico Printing House complex are called “Magnus 800 Series Agfa Platesetter” which is considered to be the fastest machine available in the market. Merely three of these machines are available in the Iranian printing industry and the Atico Printing House owns one of them.
The “Magnus 800 Series Agfa Platesetter” lithography machine works in an online state and features a much higher operating speed when compared to other conventional offline lithography machines. Owing to the fact that time is regarded as a major parameter in the printing industry, the presence of the “Magnus 800” lithography machine saves a vast amount of time and increases the overall work speed. It is precisely for this reason that providing optimum quality has become one of the claims and slogans of the Atico Printing House.
The various types of lithography machines which are currently available in the Atico Printing and Binding House are as follows:
- KODAK Magnus 800(70*100)online2012 plate setter
- KODAK Creo offline plate setter
After preparing the plates in the lithography section, it is the turn of the printing machine. in addition to a large number of many Single Colour printing machines, the Atico complex has two types of modern CD and XL printing machines.
CD Printing machine
The Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102 printing machine(70*100 size) has resulted in the whole printing process of the Atico complex being carried out with the highest quality possible and there is no need to outsource any of our orders.
In addition to its ultimate high printing speed, this machine provides us with higher quality and cleaner final products. This device is technically considered by many to be the best available model and provides us with excellent output features at a high speed and quality. Bearing all this in mind, outputs made by this device can easily be compared with European works and standards.
The Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102 is capable of printing at a grammage of up to 500 microns and also features a water base printing capability. Another key advantage of this device is it has a wall-screen.
The XL Printing Machine
The Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 printing machine( 50*70 size) is yet another top-of-the-range Heidelberg technology device that the Atico Printing House is equipped with. This device can technically be considered A model higher than a CD machine and is very efficient for printing on high grammage paper; which makes it quite superior to CD machines. Furthermore, the device is an equal rival to CD devices in terms of its speed and output quality.
The SM Printing Machine
The number of Single Colour and two-colour devices in operation at the Atico Printing and Binding complex is high and all the machines are equipped with SM technology. There are SM devices with a size of 70 x 100 which are highly applicable and of course, with lower quality when compared with CD machines that are available for Single Colour and two-colour printing.
It is worth pointing out that the size of the Single Colour devices available in the market and in the printing houses is 70 x 50. However, the SM devices in the Atico Printing complex are all of a 70 x 100 size. This fact has led to a much higher working capacity during a 24-hour period which amounts to twice the efficiency of other major printing houses.
The various types of printing devices that are found at the Atico Printing and Binding Complex are as follows:
- A Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102 printing machine, Five colours (70*100 size)
- A Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 printing machine, Five colours (50*70 size)
