Richard Germain, Technical Director - Hebdo Litho
February 13, 2008 — Ottawa, Canada | "Violet is a better investment than thermal on two key points: laser life and laser replacement cost. We've been in production for three years now with no down time.
Not a single day without production. The ECRM machine has my full recommendation."

Its small footprint was also a deciding factor."
