US Ink, Carlstadt, N.J., released an enhanced edition of Press Doctor, its comprehensive trouble-shooting guide for coldset web printers that is a part of US Ink’s RealColor program.
Press Doctor 2006 contains more than 1,000 pages of technical solutions to “virtually every aspect of the printing process,” according to US Ink. “We’ve taken the best of our research and technology, combined it with the best practices of our customer base and created an interactive CD that can make any pressroom run more smoothly and efficiently,” Customer Service Director Dennis Cheeseman said in a statement,
New in Press Doctor 2006 are updates on technical topics, information on ink mileage and high-strength inks, temperature control and input for ink systems, the Specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production (SNAP), technical tips for obtaining SNAP certification, updated graphics, and hyperlinks.
Calling it “a proactive piece of software,” Cheeseman said Press Doctor 2006 “not only helps printers solve existing problems, but more importantly, makes them aware of what can be done to prevent problems.” Meeting advertisers’ and readers’ greater print-quality expectations from printers with greatly increased color capacity “requires life-long learning of evolving technology associated with coldset web printing,” said Operations Vice President Larry Lepore.
Press Doctor 2006 can be ordered, at no charge, by calling 800-423-8838, or registered members can downloaded a copy from www.usink.com.
