Imagine! Obtains Hybrid Inkjet/Screen Press
MINNEAPOLIS—Imagine! Print Solutions recently enhanced its wide-format digital printing capabilities with the addition of a new inkjet press, an Agfa M-Press Tiger. This high-speed, flatbed inkjet press is reportedly the only hybrid printing press with in-line screen printing capabilities.
Ideal for point-of-purchase (POP), point-of-sale (POS) signage and displays, this hybrid machine outputs up to 170 full-size (65×104˝) sheets per hour. It produces four-color prints, along with spot colors, opaque whites, metallic inks and additional coatings through its in-line screen printing unit. The machine delivers image quality of up to 1,260×720 dpi, rendering fine text down to 4 pt.
“We are very excited to offer this new workhorse to our customers,” said Bob Lothenbach, president of Imagine! Print Solutions. “We spent a fair amount of time researching new presses, and the :M-Press Tiger is the most robust digital press in the marketplace. Its ability to bring both digital and screen production capabilities in-line without sacrificing print quality was a major benefit. I am extremely confident that our customers will be thrilled with the level of print quality this digital press can provide.”
