We are pleased to announce that Northern Engraving has purchased and placed two new computer-to-screen (CST) systems in our Sparta and Holmen Screen Making departments. Within days of setting up the units, our Screen Making departments jumped in and were producing screens on the equipment. The Art Department has been busy preparing for the delivery by converting files to the proper format. There is still work to be done over the upcoming months to fully utilize and take advantage of the technology.
This investment in technology and processing helps to ensure our screen printing technology is in line with competition and allows us to remain an environmentally responsible manufacturer. Thank you to everyone who has helped to make the implementation of this technology a success.
"This was a much needed upgrade. It has already made things easier and quicker for making the screens for the production floor.” - Tim Roth, Holmen Screen Making
