Control Media installs Micron Media´s Cron platesetter

Control Media recently purchased a new Cron platesetter. “It is now being used in our premises in Wildert (Belgium), but will move with us to Etten-Leur (the Netherlands) to our new premises, a 9,000m2 production plant”, says director Leon van Nunen. “The new platesetter means an increase from two to three platesetters. The number of plates we use has been increasing every year and I don´t expect this to change in the near future. This was a reason for us to look closely at our process efficiency. This resulted in testing a Cron solution which we really liked. Our new system uses conventional plates from Blackwood. These plates are 30 to 40% cheaper than offset plates of the more well-known brands. The sums were simple ´one and one is and will always be two´ and the choice to invest to continue to make money from print was easy.”

Micron Media was founded in 2014 based on the vision that the changing graphic industry landscape and the increasing pressure on price offer new opportunities. Co-founder Frank van Deursen: “Suppliers have to lead with good service and flexibility, but mostly delivery quality products and solutions at competitive pricing.” Micron Media has exclusive rights in the Netherlands for Cron CTP solutions and Blackwood offset plates. Micron Media is also main supplier of Mitsubishi offset plates and offers complete solutions for materials such as: inks, chemicals and such.
