Mitsubishi Imaging Open House Showcases Four-up Color Printing on a Ryobi PressApril 2009
"Our customers are telling us that they are faced with the need to drive down costs, to automate production and they can't afford to sacrifice quality. An affordable CTP solution, such as Silver DigiPlate and DPX 4 Eco, combined with the sophisticated press technology of the Ryobi 780E press, can deliver the quality that a printer needs to thrive while adding to their bottom line," said Frances Cicogna, Director of Graphic Arts Marketing at Mitsubishi Imaging.
The DPX 4 Eco helps small to mid-sized printers obtain the benefits of CTP without the high costs associated with metal CTP. The industry's first and only platesetter purposely built for four-up polyester production, the DPX 4 Eco uses a field-tested and proven eco friendly processing technology to deliver extremely stable plate development while reducing chemistry usage and waste by up to 50%.
The DPX 4 Eco provides high quality and unsurpassed efficiency as it images each plate to the built-in punch, ensuring perfect registration every time. Since the DPX 4 Eco has a very small footprint it takes up a minimum of space which means more room for other equipment.
The Ryobi 780E press is perfect for short-run, quick turn-around jobs with automated features that enable faster make-ready. Requiring minimum installation and space, it is a cost-effective model for the half-size printer. The Ryobi 780E capabilities make it the perfect match to the DPX 4 Eco for profitable 4-up process color printing.
The combination is ideal for short-run printing of 500+ impressions. Its quality and efficiency outperform digital, streamlining production, lowering costs and enabling the printer to be more profitable.
"Digital is capable of some of the work but if you want to grow and be more profitable you really need to be able to handle offset printing jobs in-house," said Bob Gajewski, owner of Trend Graphics, who recently upgraded his digital print shop with a DPX 4 and 4-up press.
