The Bremen-based calendar manufacturer terminic GmbH has been certified for the sixth time in a row – and thus without interruption since 2009 – and now based on ISO 12647:2013 (FOGRA 51 PSO coated v3) according to process standard offset printing (PSO) for fastidious cardboard printing on 100 raster. vdmno (Verband Druck und Medien NordOst e.V.), represented by Udo Eickelpasch, inspected the following modules in accordance with PSO on site: qualified colour management, printed proof production, printing plate production and setting up of print jobs/production run. Subsequently, Fogra (Forschungsgesellschaft Druck e.V.) also confirmed the analysis results of vdmno and thus the consistently high production level at terminic.
In order to always meet its self-imposed high quality standards, terminic has been working with its own "PSO team" since 2009, which consists of in-house specialists from the areas of printing and prepress. They are committed to quality management in printing of 100 raster on GC1 cardboard and pursue a continuous optimisation process which is regularly reviewed by PSOaktiv four times a year.
Through necessary quality controls, voluntary participation in this certification ensures a permanently constant production through standardised procedures and process components and underpins terminic’s own quality claim on the promotional calendars of this long-standing enterprise. www.terminic.eu
