Presstek to Unveil Innovative Digital Offset, CTP Products at drupa
The 75DI goes from digital file to sellable sheet in six minutes and prints at 16,000 impressions per hour. It is the most economical press on the market for color jobs with run lengths between 500 and 20,000 impressions, which encompasses the majority of print jobs being run today around the world.
The B2 format Presstek 75DI is available in four- to 10-color configurations. An in-line aqueous coater and a full range of productivity enhancing options can be added to make the press even more productive. The 75DI features automated support for 300 lpi and FM screening and has a small environmental footprint. Print quality is further enhanced by utilizing waterless printing technology. The 75DI has a maximum sheet size of 788 mm x 600 mm (31.02x 23.62˝), a minimum sheet size of 279 mm x 200 mm (10.98x7.87˝), and can print on a broad array of stocks ranging from 0.04 mm to 0.8 mm (0.0016˝ to 0.031˝) thick.
“The combination of the 75DI and our new product announcements provide exciting possibilities for Presstek’s existing and future customers—we are looking forward to showing them at drupa,” said Stan Freimuth, Presstek’s Chairman, President & CEO.
Presstek’s Expanded Digital Plate Portfolio Covers Digital Plate Needs for Larger Printers
At drupa 2012, Presstek will also be showcasing its expanded line of thermal CTP plates.
“The Presstek plate portfolio offers solutions that encompass a wide range of printing needs with high quality plates that can be imaged on industry-standard 830 nm thermal platesetters, including Presstek devices,” said Freimuth. “This, combined with our outstanding service and support, has us well positioned to supply larger shops and offers a terrific alternative to the traditional plate suppliers in the market.”
Thermal digital plates from Presstek include:
• PhD 830: a negative working ablation-free pre-heat thermal plate supporting run lengths of 250,000 without baking and a million plus with an optional post-bake. PhD 830 requires less chemistry, less power, and has a wider pre-heat latitude than competitive plate products. PhD also has high resistance to pressroom chemicals and on-press abrasion.
