Presstek to Expand Portfolio with UV and Aqueous Coating Options
Presstek 52DI-AC, a new 52DI digital offset press with an integrated aqueous coater will be introduced at PRINT 09. The Presstek 52DI-AC press combines the power of high quality short-run, cost-effective color with the speed, durability and visual appeal of aqueous coating. Presstek 52DI-AC supports both flood and spot aqueous coating, which opens up new applications and service opportunities for both commercial and packaging print service providers. The 52DI-AC reduces overall cycle time, and the quick-drying coatings speed the delivery of superior quality printing on a wide range of substrates. The Presstek 52DI-AC will be available for order taking at PRINT 09 with delivery in 2010.
Presstek 52DI-UV Digital Offset Press dramatically expands the range of applications that can be addressed; making it easier for service providers to differentiate their businesses, whether it is general commercial work, small format packaging, tags and labels, or point-of-purchase materials. UV waterless inks dry instantly for immediate work and turn, or for quick transfer to finishing operations. Superior quality printing is achieved on uncoated stock and non-porous substrates such as foils, plastics and magnetic media. Presstek will be accepting orders for 52DI-UV and 34DI-UV presses at PRINT 09, and Presstek 52DI and 34DI digital offset presses are field upgradable to the UV version; combining the benefits of UV printing with the superior quality of DI printing on a wider range of substrates.
Presstek DI Press and Konica Minolta C6501 Bundle Option makes the bizhub PRO C6501 digital color printer available as an optional bundled solution with Presstek DI presses. This combination offers the most cost-effective means of producing a wide range of applications, such as personalized print and ultra-short-run versioned documents for integrated marketing initiatives, including direct mail.
