#Ipex: New Presstek 75DI Press Will Be On Display
HUDSON, NH—March 15 2010—Presstek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRST), leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that it will be demonstrating the new Presstek 75DI digital offset press at IPEX, one of the world’s leading trade shows for the printing, publishing and media industries scheduled for May 18-25, 2010, in Birmingham, UK. Presstek will be located in Hall 7, Stand C480. The first showing of the 75DI press in North America is scheduled for GRAPH EXPO in October.
“We are excited about bringing to market this latest addition to our robust line of digital offset presses,” said Jeff Jacobson, Chairman, President & CEO of Presstek. “It is in line with our overall strategy of serving larger printing companies while continuing to bring highly valuable solutions to market that will enable our base of customers to expand their operations. The new Presstek 75DI press will deliver the same level of quality that our Presstek 34 and 52DI customers have come to expect, but in a larger format size and with the ability to add additional print towers with inline coating. Its larger sheet size also means greater productivity and the ability to gang more orders onto a single sheet. We believe visitors to our stand at IPEX will be delighted when they see this breakthrough press demonstrated.”
The Presstek 75DI digital offset press continues the Presstek DI tradition of very high quality (300 lpi or stochastic screening); extreme automation (8-minute job-to-job turnover); and a small environmental footprint with waterless printing technology, chemistry-free imaging on-press, fast run-up for minimal waste, and consistent quality from job to job and within each job.
The 75DI press has a maximum print speed of 16,000 sheets per hour. It has a maximum paper size of 788 x 600 mm (31.02 x 23.62”), a minimum paper size of 279 x 200 mm (10.98 x 7.87”) and a maximum print area of 760 x 580 mm (29.53 x 22.83”). It can print on a wide range of stocks ranging from 0.04 to 0.6 mm (0.0016” to 0.024”).
