Many offset printers go without a service contract for their CtP system. This is usually because they are concerned about paying for service that they don’t use.
Service contracts can lower CtP downtime. A contract offers faster support and better access to parts. But is it really worth it? We believe that our customers should get what they pay for, so we’ve developed a new kind of CtP service contract. Our new service contract options give you credit for unused service.

Kodak has announced that they will discontinue service on all MPE CtP equipment as of December of 2016. This affects all printers using an older Trendsetter, Magus or Lotem platesetter that uses a SCSI interface. Service will also be dropped for SCSI based versions of Prinergy, EVO, and Connect software and hardware. If you are currently receiving technical support from Kodak, it may be time to make a decision. Our company will continue to offer parts, technical service, service contracts and upgrade options for all models of Creo or Kodak CtP. We also offer trade-in options toward newer equipment.
