ECRM to Release Affordable Digital Printing Solution at GRAPH EXPO
TEWKSBURY, MA—August 29, 2011—ECRM Imaging Systems announced it will release the DPP1200 digital production press for immediate sale at GRAPH EXPO 2011 in Chicago (Sept. 11-14). The DPP 1200 is positioned to deliver commercial quality color output for the demands of today’s commercial printer. The system offers economically priced digital printing as a supplement to their current print production offerings. The new and innovative digital press is capable of producing high-quality business cards, posters, brochures, magazine covers, real-estate pages and much more in line screens up to 175 lpi.
ECRM showed the new system at the Graphics of the Americas (February) and the On Demand (March) shows earlier this year, as well as at an open house of their European dealer in April. Each exhibit drew increasingly more positive reviews. At GRAPH EXPO, ECRM (booth #353) will launch the DPP 1200 as a complete workflow solution for as little as $300 a month.
“ECRM understands that many printers have resisted investing in very expensive digital presses that come with their own production workflows. Their staff would need to be trained to operate and maintain these proprietary systems, which are wholly separate from their offset processes. These solutions have historically made digital printing a very costly endeavor.” notes ECRM Director of Product Management John Marzec. “Yet, without an economical way to print short run work, revenue from these jobs is escaping down the street to competitors and corner fast-print outlets. ECRM’s DPP 1200 allows the printer to use a common workflow to drive both the DPP 1200 and their CTP for conventional offset printing. With a low cost of entry and a very affordable cost per page, the DPP 1200 makes high-quality digital printing a real-world reality for any commercial printer.”
ECRM DPP 1200 is now available through the ECRM worldwide distribution channels.
