In the rapidly changing commercial print market, it is only those companies which can deliver the highest quality at the best prices that will survive. This is possible only when the whole production process is kept lean by means of process optimisation through technology and speed. Solitaire’s peak performance class Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75-5 LX and SM 102-2P presses are used to meet the most demanding quality and delivery standards set by our clients in commercial, label, security and packaging printing.
Solitaire supplies high quality square and die-cut wet-gum labels to the fish and meat canning industries in Namibia. Metal effects such as gold, copper, silver and
bronze can be applied for special effect. Labels are coated in-line for durability, immediate turn around and handling. Precision high speed Polar 137 cutting systems with automatic Transomat unloading are used to guarantee square-cut labels are trimmed to the finest tolerances, delivered in precisely counted and banded stacks and with minimal handling. A zero tolerance Polar DC-M die-cutter is used to obtain a variety of die-cut shapes for bottle neck and body labels.
Professional designs are created in close collaboration with our clients at our inhouse studio and then checked, and checked again, before being packaged and submitted to the CtP department for page imposition and imaging to plate. Leading technology Heidelberg Suprasetter 106 laser platesetters guarantee excellent image quality plates are produced and accurately punched for printing. These fully automated precision devices ensure top-level productivity around the clock with very little manual intervention. Prinect Prepress Interface allows the press
operator to import relevant parameters directly from CtP, to precisely set the ink zones on the press and ensure accurate colour reproduction with reduced makeready
time and waste.
Digital printing shines when it comes to short-runs. Any quantity that can be printed on less than 200 A3 size images should be printed on a digital press. Set-up costs
are lower for short-runs, exact quantities can be printed without waste, and with improved technologies, digital quality is getting closer to offset. Digital colour prints
are produced on two high end devices, a Canon Océ imagePRESS C7010 and a Ricoh Pro C7200X with five colours, both designed for commercial printers. True
1200 x 1200 dpi with 256 levels of grey on the devices makes it very difficult to tell the difference between digital and offset.
