[QUOTE=RCM;2109796]I’ve ALWAYS wanted to see a factory for DVD-R and CD-R![/QUOTE]
. If you are interested, you can find some pictures from Eximpo’s factory here:
I hope that I will be able to post some hi res pictures from other source in next few weeks.
Eximpo is (or was) a small Czech manufacturer of pressed CDs, DVDs, CD-Rs and DVD-Rs
[B]stamper supplier:[/B] CD-R Plasmon OMS S.A.R.L., for DVD-R Interaxia AG
[B]dye supplier:[/B] for CD-R Ciba (Irgaphor Supergreen and Ultragreen), for DVD-R Interaxia AG (Dye 41, 82)
[B]manufacturer of CD-R and DVDR lines[/B]: Steag Hamatech (they have 1 DVD-R line and unknown number of CD-R lines)
They were selling at least 90% of their production on Czech and Slovakian market under Multidisc brand. Eximpo was famous for the affair with “self-destructing” discs, this “feature” was caused by infamous unstable Interaxia’s dye and company was forced to admit it and replace all produced media. Eximpo almost went bankrupt and for more than 2 years is trying to sell its DVDR manufacturing equipment.
All manufacturers which were using Interaxia’s dye had the same problems, but they were more or less able to hide those problems because they were exporting most of their media to many different countries (SkyMedia, AcmeMedia, OMP S.A., DDT Malaysia, etc).
