Russian print company invests in Screen to 'automate for profit'
Automate for profit, Screen's theme for this year's Ipex, was exactly what the brothers Vitaliy and Dmitriy Zamkovoy had in mind for their future investments. The brothers own and manage the company Eurographica in downtown Moscow.
"We were keen to invest in a workflow and automated CTP system, we investigated the market and opted for a Screen B2 PlateRite thermal platesetter with automated plateloading and punching," explains Dmitriy Zamkovoy, joint owner of Eurographia. "The platesetter is now making plates for our 5 colour Shinohara B3 press and can output 20 B2 plates per hour, allowing for more plate output."
For a number of jobs the company use Screen's Spekta screening, which is well appreciated by most of their customers, in particular the Svyato-Danilovsky Stavropegialny monastery, one of the two biggest Moscow monasteries.
"Our philosophy is to keep the company as small as possible in terms of staff and just invest in automation. It is true that the cost of labour is relatively low in Russia, but wages are increasing, certainly in Moscow," continues Dmitriy. "In the long run Eurographica will benefit more and more from our decision".
Eurographica was founded ten years ago as an advertising agency and five years later it was decided that the company would invest in print production equipment. Nowadays, it's a full service printshop, serving a number of customers from design through to the finished end product.
Given the fact that Eurographica is a successful company with an excellent production configuration, they are the proof that 'automate for profit' is a reality, because they only employ 6 people!
Eurographica have also invested in a Perfecta guillotine and a Horizon collator, stitcher, folder and binder line. Next year, the company plan to invest in a JDF enabled MIS system.
