GREENWICH, CT—Apr 26, 2012—Presstek Inc. (NASDAQ: PRST), a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that research firm InfoTrends has released an extensive white paper analyzing the market impact, benefits and competitive advantages of the Presstek 75DI digital offset press. The white paper is available as a free download at www.presstek.com/75DIreport.
“Our in-depth look at the Presstek 75DI revealed a number of advantages this 29” (B2+) press has in today’s highly competitive and rapidly evolving print market,“ said Jim Hamilton, group director of InfoTrends’ Production Printing & Media Consulting Services. ”Its six-minute job-to-job turnover is impressive, and the fact that this time includes imaging of chemistry-free plates on-press should not be overlooked.
“Presstek’s 75DI makes a compelling argument for cost-effective, offset-quality, print automation with a workflow that allows last-minute changes and opens up a range of new application opportunities. This should be very appealing to today’s print service providers who are increasingly asked to provide a wide range of work within ever tightening turnaround times.“
The Presstek 75DI is available in four- to 10-color configurations and prints at 16,000 sheets per hour. 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 31.02x 23.62˝ (788 mm x 600 mm), a minimum sheet size of 10.98x 7.87˝ (279 mm x 200 mm), and can print on a broad array of stocks ranging from 0.0016˝ to 0.031˝ (0.04 mm to 0.8 mm) thick.
