U.S., Canadian Printers Invited to Ryobi Open House in Metro Atlanta
GSNA officials said reduced power requirements from a Ryobi 920 series press equipped with LED-UV curing can generate $25,000 to $50,000 in annual savings versus a six-color, 40˝ press equipped with traditional dryers.
In addition, the 920 series press cuts the cost of consumables including plates and blankets by 30 percent and requires 35 percent less floor space than a competitive eight-up press.
Add to that highly competitive equipment pricing—plus extreme reliability that assures continuous uptime—and printers can get the lowest total cost of ownership of any eight-up press on the market today, GSNA said.
Panasonic’s new LED-UV drying system instantly dries the print, enabling quick delivery to the bindery and customer. It draws 75 percent less power than conventional lamps, requires no powder spray or ductwork, and substantially cuts VOC emissions. Highly compact, energy-efficient chillers and lamp controllers further reduce footprint requirements.
