The key feature of the series is the unique CMYK dry toner system that makes it the most productive large format printer series in its class with the lowest cost of ownership. The series also generates fully lightfast prints, which will not fade or show signs of deterioration over time from exposure to light. The fact that the printers also use uncoated media adds to the low cost of production.
This year, Regma South Africa is celebrating 20 years of selling KIP products in South Africa. Regma South Africa Sales & Marketing Director, Phil Jones explained that the KIP 800 Series can capture subtle tints and hues with excellent colour stability and image fidelity for an entire print run, making the printers ideal for a range of wide format printing applications from architectural, engineering and construction documents to maps and posters.
'We see this unique offering not only appealing to the obvious traditional markets of architects, engineers and construction companies but also to copy shops, print companies and branding companies and digital print specialists that want to produce fast and inexpensive Point of Sale posters and banners,' added Jones. 'We have been very successful with the KIP brand over the years. An added benefit of our long relationship with KIP is that we have built a considerable technical knowledge base that enables us to service and maintain the machine base.'
The series boasts operational speeds of 268 square metres per hour in colour and black and white. They are designed for technical, graphic and office document users who require high demand output, precise imaging and bold, expressive colour fidelity. The KIP 800 Colour Series systems are a comprehensive wide format solution for a range of printing tasks spanning from architectural, engineering, and construction documents, to maps, posters, signs, and photo enlargements, without sacrificing quality or performance.
Jones added that the combination of KIP 800’s advanced software and hardware technology makes it a must for production printing by offering superb resolution and also maintaining this resolution at fast print speeds of up to 7.5 A1s per minute, in either colour or black and white.
