PacPrint Q&A: Dainippon Screen Australia

Peter Scott

Managing director

Dainippon Screen Australia

When was your company's first PacPrint?

In 1988, one year after establishing Screen Australia as a direct company branch.

Can you name any milestone launches at previous PacPrints?

I think computer-to-plate changed the industry in a major way from 1996 onward, not just from Screen but from many suppliers. Most of these names have disappeared but I am proud to say Screen is still the world’s leading manufac­turer of CTP systems.

Can you name any milestone sales at previous PacPrints?

All equipment on the stand was sold in 2001. Two 8pp and one 4pp CTPs  plus a scanner.

PacPrint or PrintEx – what’s your favourite?

PrintEx: convenient, compact, lower in cost to exhibit but has consistently delivered great results.

How can customers get the most out of PacPrint?

Plan ahead and book demonstrations. Spend quality time talking to stand personnel. They have years of experience to share.

How will you entice customers to invest?

By showing latest technologies and emphasising Screen’s reputation for reliable and well-built equipment

What will you be showing at PacPrint13?

To be announced closer to PacPrint, we are not revealing what will be on show just yet.

Can you give us any other hints about your stand or plans for the show?

New products and a dynamic demonstration of inkjet production.

PacPrint13 takes place at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on 21-25 May 2013. Visit
