Lasermax Roll Systems to Announces New High-Speed Stack System, Show Quality Assurance System
LJUNGBY, SWEDEN—April 30, 2008—Lasermax Roll Systems will be demonstrating the first modules of its new LX700 product line for roll-fed digital printers at Drupa 2008. This demonstration will be in their stand B61 in Hall 6 and will showcase significant advances in technology for cutting and stacking forms in-line with the fastest continuous feed digital printers.
“The LX700 product line is being developed to support the increasing requirements of new digital printers and the anticipation of even greater speed increases in the years ahead,” says Bill Carroll, President and CEO for Lasermax Roll Systems. “The system that will be shown in our stand at Drupa also includes several new capabilities for handling lightweight paper in response to increasing needs by our customers.”
The LX700 is being designed and built around the highly successful LX500 platform. Since 2001, the LX500 products have provided unprecedented reliability to digital print operations. Today, the LX500 products have the largest market share worldwide (for digital pre and post-processing) and demand for the products continues to increase. “The ultimate introduction of the LX700 products to the market will expand on the proven technology of the LX500 products providing additional capabilities as well as ensuring speed compatibility with new digital printers in the years to come,” states Carroll.
Lasermax Roll Systems is currently developing two versions of cutting and stacking solutions for its new LX700 product line. The first is targeted at the commercial print market and has many special features designed to reliably cut and stack lightweight paper at very high speeds. This is the version that will be demonstrated in their stand at Drupa 2008. The second version is targeted at both the commercial print and transactional markets to run applications in standard paperweights at high speeds or with frequent stack deliveries.
These LX700 stacking solutions will be capable of operating in-line with the highest speed roll-fed digital printers to produce 1-up, 2-up, 3-up or 2-up merged stacks from a wide range of media including lightweight paper with or without tractor feed holes. Both solutions use a new stack alignment section to guide sheets and separate 2-up or 3-up stacks. Jobs or book blocks can be automatically offset within the stacks for easy operator handling. New stacking technology also includes an internal accumulation during delivery cycles, which drastically reduces or eliminates the need for a large web-buffering device after the printer.
