D – For the sixth time in a row the calendar specialist, terminic, has been certified according to the ProzessStandard Offsetprinting standard (PSO) for its 100 raster cardboard printing. The Printing and Media Association North East e.V. (vdmno e.V.), represented by Udo Eickelpasch, checked the modules qualified colour management, proof creation process, the plate production and set-up of the printing orders/continuous printing at the company’s premises in Bremen. Subsequently, the Fogra Forschungsgesellschaft Druck e. V. (printing research company) also confirmed the evaluation results of the vdmno.
In order to do justice to the self-imposed high quality claims, the calendar specialist has been working together with an in-house PSO team since 2009, which comprises of experts from the printing and pre-press areas. The PSO team is responsible for the quality management for the 100 raster printing on GC1 cardboard and pursues a continual optimising process which is checked by the additional “PSO active” module four times a year. In terminic’s opinion, the voluntary participation in the certification ensures a sustainable, constant production due to standardised procedures and process components and underpins the company’s own quality demands.
