ccDotmeter to Support “Children in Need”

ccDotmeter – a UK based technology company – is pleased to announce that it will be supporting the BBC’s Children in Need fund raising efforts by contributing £50 for every microDot order received from now through to November 19, 2012.

The microDot instrument is a product that is in use at print businesses throughout the world to provide quality control assurance to printers focused on creating the best of images. The device utilises robust, standard digital microscope hardware combined with unique, patented Centurfax software to create a product for reading the image on a litho printing plate and the printed output, providing the mechanics for calibrating both pre-press and printing equipment. Dotmeters, such as microDot, are essential tools for any printer seeking to conform to industry quality standards, including ISO12647-2.

Commenting on the fundraising initiative, Bob Leslie, Managing Director of ccDotmeter, said: “It might be a small contribution from the world of printing, but every little helps in the support of such important causes. We view it as a gesture to the next generation: a helping hand to youngsters everywhere.

The company’s UK dealers and distributors are currently being contacted to enlist their support in this charitable focus. Updates regarding the success of this fundraising effort will be posted on the company’s Twitter news feed: @ccDotmeter  Why not follow this page to keep in touch with progress?

Paul Foster, Sales Director for the company, added: “Some in the industry might remember that we held a Beaujolais Nouveau party a few years ago where we also raised funds for this important cause. With the official Beaujolais celebration in the diary for November 22 this year, we might well add our own special day again if this £50 per unit […]

ccDotmeter: Putting Print Quality in Focus at Graph Expo 2012

ccDotmeter – a UK based technology company – is pleased to announce its microDot quality control instrument will be on show at Graph Expo 2012, taking place in Chicago from October 7 to 10. The microdot product will be exhibited on the Ihara US Inc. stand, booth #4432.

The microDot instrument is a product that is in use at print businesses throughout the world to provide quality control assurance to printers focused on creating the best of images. The device utilises robust, standard digital microscope hardware combined with unique, patented Centurfax software to create a product for reading the image on a litho printing plate and the printed output, providing the mechanics for calibrating both pre-press and printing equipment. Dotmeters, such as microDot, are essential tools for any printer seeking to conform to industry quality standards, including ISO12647-2.

Paul Foster, International Sales Director at ccDotmeter, said: “Following a highly successful Drupa show in Europe earlier this year, we anticipate that Graph Expo will further expand our presence in the USA. Quality control is becoming a critical focus for printers seeking to gain a competitive advantage over other print businesses. The days of slashing prices have ended: consistent quality is the most important differentiator. Everybody benefits from improved print quality, and with the new RIP screening and plate technologies now being employed in the industry, process control is an ever more critical area. microDot has the very latest on-board algorithms for managing these new developments.”

He added: “One of our American partners, Ihara, is showing a wide range of quality control instruments, with microDot the most compact and cost effective of them all.”
