Sheridan Books Adds Short-Run Cover Capacity with MGI Meteor Digital PressNovember 13, 2012
“Since the Meteor DP8700 XL’s installation, it has lived up to the expectations that were communicated prior to purchase,” added Cotter. “The press is producing book covers and dust jackets that match offset very closely, which is exactly what we needed.
“We’re also beginning to integrate variable data on our covers and dust jackets, which will bring our customers more personalization options,” he continued. “All in all, the Meteor DP8700 XL is an excellent toner-based press for the majority of our short run work.”
The most versatile digital press in the global graphics market, the Meteor DP8700 XL offers users the widest range of substrates available (paper, plastics and envelopes), the largest sheet size among production sheetfed digital presses (up to 40" in production), laser-safe prints via oil-free, dry toner, no click charge and an economical total cost of operation, and a print resolution of 3,600 dpi/270 lpi with 25 different line screens (including stochastic), including the ability to select 2 different line screens within the same job.
