Presstek and Pitman Expand U.S. Distribution Network for DI Presses
The Benefits of Presstek Digital Offset Presses
Increase Profitability. DI users define run lengths of 250 to 10,000 impressions as the “sweet spot” for the press, according to an InfoTrends, Inc. market study. Printers can leverage the cost efficiencies of the press for a competitive advantage in the expanding short-run color market.
Maximize Productivity. The DI’s time-saving features and the faster drying time of waterless ink enable the fast turnaround of high quality print jobs – including same-day service. Computer file to sellable sheet is achieved in 10 minutes, and the press comes up to color in only 20 sheets.
Achieve Superior Quality and Flexibility. The DI’s unique design, digital imaging capabilities and range of automated functions support up to 300 lpi and FM screening without incurring additional expense or time. The DI also prints on a wide range of substrates from 0.06 mm to 0.5 mm thick; onion skin to heavy card stock to plastic. The waterless press design eliminates ink/water balance issues and easily produces luminous color consistently sheet-to-sheet and job-to-job.
