Diamond V3000LX with UV Capabilities to Headline Mitsubishi Booth
LINCOLNSHIRE, IL—08/05/09—Mitsubishi Lithographic Presses (MLP U.S.A., Inc.) announced that its technology lineup for PRINT 09 will emphasize recent advances that enable printers to profit even with a weak economy and an increasingly competitive printing market.
"The entire six days of the show will reinforce the message of Mitsubishi's commitment to helping print providers overcome the challenges of this business climate," said Marke Baker, president.
Presentations in booth #1146 will showcase the exceptional productivity, operational cost savings and low environmental impact of the Diamond V3000LX sheetfed press. Mitsubishi will demonstrate superfast press makereadies and job changeovers on the six-color Diamond V3000LX with ultraviolet (UV) coating capabilities through live printing jobs performed several times daily.
Demonstrations also will highlight Diamond Color Navigator, recipient of the 2009 InterTech Technology Award from Printing Industries of America. Mitsubishi's ground-breaking color-adjustment system enables faster and easier fine-tuning of colors, a procedure that conventionally has been a highly skill-intensive operation.
Wide stock range
Engineered to deliver outstanding performance on various media across a thickness range of 0.0016 inches to 0.040 inches, the Diamond V3000LX is ideal for high-end commercial work, labels, packaging and point-of-purchase materials. It easily accommodates paper, plastic and board up to 29-1/2 x 41-11/32 inches. The press will print four collectible posters at the show.
The Diamond V3000LX is loaded with systems to slash makeready times, including SimulChanger. The fully automated, simultaneous plate-changing system represents a giant leap in time savings related to makeready tasks, which is critical for small-lot printing, where frequent job changes are required.
Improvements in every unit and print process
Key features of the Diamond V3000LX include scratch-proof transfer and delivery skeleton cylinders, air showers above impression cylinders, a gripper height adjustment device and an individual air chamber at each printing unit. Improvements in air management prevent scratches and smudges when printing on thick sheets. Other features, including the Eco-Drive motor, lower power consumption and running costs.
