    Hello everybody. I have some experience with printing industry. I have worked on 1 colour, 2 colours, 4 colours, 8 colours sheet-fed printing machines from Adast, Heidelberg, Roland. Earlier also as assistant on heatset offset printing machines like Lithoman. But always I was interested in computers more than in printing machines. Learning of programming gave me more satisfaction.
    Currently started own project, which is related to programming but also strongly connected to printing machines and equipment.

    Hi Everyone,
    I am Mike,
    I have been a member here for some time but only just got round to posting an intro.
    I started in the industry as an apprentice letterpress machinist in 1976
    I worked on a multitude of letterpress and offset presses from platens and Vertical Miehlies through to continuous forms machines and multicolour presses
    In 1986 I made a break from the shop floor into estimating first with pecil and paper, then on an early computerised estimating system built on the Pick operating system. I then moved into production management, ran an instant print shop for 3 years and eventually ended up in prepress in 1999.
    In late 1999, with the hysteria of the Y2K bug at its peak, I was given the task of setting up the first in-house CTP in Western Australia with very little knowledge of prepress, but a good working knowledge of computer systems. The result, a Brisque, Iris and Lotem supplied by Scitex, was a resounding success for the business, and I am still with the same company today, now running Prinergy 8.x a Magnus platesetter and Insite proofing.
    Like many of you, I've seen a lot of changes over the years.
    I am also a volunteer with the Western Australian State Emergency Service, married to a Mezzo Soprano singer and have 2 boys at university.
    Music is a passion of mine, although I don't play any myself, I'm the tech support for my wife with PA equipment etc and also am an avid supporter of these talented ladies who I shamelessly promote at every opportunity.

    Hi guys, I have been reading the boards for a few months. Finally decided to sign up. I expect to contribute as much as I can.

    I have over 10 years experience in flexo printing from the PrePress side. Most of it in narrow web labels & tag. I have some experience with Inkjet as well. Most recently I have been in wide web flexible packaging.

    Thank you. Exactly why I asked...when in someone's house you follow their rules and decorum.

    Hi, I'm Mike. Just joined 2 days ago, first time I have written or chimed in. Decent-bad golfer and music lover.

    Love beer.......growing up my father was a beer distributor. Have been with Anheuser-Busch and Coors. Left beer in 1989 (why ?) and got into printing (product distribution side). Happy 29 years here, but lots of changes to a vital industry. An under appreciated industry. Offset side, which is not dead, but many suppliers act like it is. A lot of productive and profitable iron in the field still. Long live print.

    Chicago.

    Recently invented a product for offset printers. Not sure if I can talk about here, without sounding like a "salesman". Want to sell it, all who run paper or board need it, but do not know enough about the forum , yet, to know if it is tacky or prohibited to promote it at Print Planet. Please advise on that.

    Look forward to sharing and learning from you.

    Thanks.
    Hi Mike,
    Welcome, it's nice to have you as a Member! Since you asked, here is a general posting guideline.

    The intent of PrintPlanet is to provide problem-solving solutions, not sales pitches from vendors. Members are looking for comments, experiences and opinions from other members in answer to questions they have posted.

    When a vendor starts a new thread, solely for the purpose of gaining visibility & sales, this is when other members often complain about 'vendor spam’. If a vendor’s solution is in response to another’s post and provides a solution, however, this is viewed as helpful information.

    Hi! My name is Henk! I just made an account as a student as I'm doing a design project on large scale printing facilities at the Delft University of Technology. If you are willing to answer some questions about machine operator experiences we would be happy to ask some questions ^^ You could also participate in this questionnaire.

    For the rest: as I am a student beer is about half the things I consume. Preferrably Grolsch

    Kind.

    Hi All,

    I have been running a mainly large format print business for a good few years, but am looking to add some light small format capabilities.

    Looks forward to reading through more of the forum, but my dog has decided it is tennis ball time.

    Hey all! - Just thought I'd say hi. I work with Able Systems who make small-format portable thermal printers for taxis, kiosks, lab equipment etc (http://www.able-systems.com) and just thought I'd see what's popular in the industry at the minute.

    Mac lover, 3 cats, music critic, foodaholic and purveyor of the finest sarcasm. Whatever.

    Able systems are a leading UK manufacturer of compact, portable, thermal, receipt printers for use in kiosks and on the go.
