#Ipex: New Presstek 75DI Press Will Be On Display
In addition, the Presstek 75DI press incorporates significant technological advances, including utilization of new on-press imaging technology. This next-generation imaging technology utilizes a single lens imaging concept in which all diodes image through a single lens resulting in improved image quality and even easier makeready. The efficiency of the press is further enhanced by a simultaneous imaging and cleaning process that optimizes the makeready time between jobs.
At launch, this tower press will be available in 4-, 5- and 6-color configurations plus an optional coater, with more options to be announced during 2010. Beta will begin in June of 2010, and commercial availability worldwide is expected prior to the end of 2010.
“This highly flexible and configurable 75DI press will open the door to production of an even wider range of short-run color applications than its DI predecessors,” added Jacobson, “and its 6-up format will drive increased productivity. We see the Presstek 75DI press as the ideal complement for shops with larger conventional offset presses who need to extend the range of applications they can produce, make shorter runs more profitable and maintain the high level of quality that will ensure their ability to remain competitive in a consolidating market. It will also be complementary to production-level digital toner-based presses that can be expensive to operate for runs of 500 sheets or more. The DI press technology truly provides the bridge for high quality, profitable print for run lengths from 500 to 20,000 impressions.”
