Purup-Eskofot subsidiary TechSage (Lystrup, Denmark) has successfully installed its 500th SpinJet 1000 double-sided Imposition Proofing System. The proofer was installed in October at Arnold Printing (Cincinnati), a commercial printer focusing on business collateral, direct mail and stationery, and with an expertise in floral stamping and embossing.

The SpinJet 1000 enables users to produce double-sided, eight-up, full-color imposition proofs at the maximum speed of the HP DesignJet 1000 large-format printer. It uses the dual media path of the DesignJet, feeding from the roll and reloading the printed sheet for reverse-side printing, without dismounting the roll. It then feeds from the roll again, for the next proof. The system first began shipping in November 2000.

The SpinJet 1000 will be replacing Arnold Printing's dylux analog proofer and another digital proofer. "We'll be using the SpinJet for both in-house and customer proofs," says Bob Scales, Arnold Printing prepress manager. "As we move employees from conventional stripping to electronic work, we expect to save time and money. The DesignJet will be the perfect tool for proofing school books, school programs and newsletters to check color breaks and imposition."
