The Jacksonville Transportation Authority has chosen RMM Associates and the Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter 3600 to deliver a non-chemical, environmentally-friendly computer-to-metal plate solution for its in-plant printing requirements. This system has the lowest energy management in its class, eliminating water usage, as well as chemicals and disposal costs. This will result in substantial long-term cost savings and be ecologically responsible for future generations.
The PlateWriter produces digital CtP metal plates, which deliver accurate registration and high approach so multiple plate sizes and gauges can be used in parallel, with no changes.
RMM Associates is a national dealer for Glunz & Jensen computer-to-plate solutions and consumables to the printing industry. Henry ‘Hank’ Clifford, RMM president relays, “G&J has been the leader in inkjet computer-to-plate solutions over the last seven years. This fourth-generation product takes the best of these technologies and extends its solution to commercial printers, small and medium newspapers with 2-up, 4-up and 8-up press formats up to 36×45˝.”
The Jacksonville Transportation Authority is an independent agency of the State of Florida governed by a seven-member board of directors. JTA operates Jacksonville’s public bus service, downtown automated Skyway and paratransit service. The Authority also plans, designs and builds roads and bridges. JTA’s mission is to improve Northeast Florida’s economy, environment and quality of life by providing safe, reliable, and efficient multimodal transportation services and facilities.
An integrated transportation network is a critical element in any community to properly manage growth, provide mobility and offer a good quality of life. The Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter 3600 will help reduce cost, eliminate processes and enable faster turnaround times to provide more control on deliverables, all of which have significant value to JTA’s internal and external customers.
RMM is realizing great success supporting customers looking for non-chemical, environmentally-friendly computer-to-metal plate products.
