The Presstek 52DI digital offset press will be shown for the first time
at the trade show, taking place from 14-17 November. in Shanghai. The press offers printers the most profitable solution for meeting the demand for quick turnaround and high quality colour printing in runs from 500 to 20 000.
Our presence at the show demonstrates our continued pursuit of our geographic expansion strategy, said Jeff Jacobson, Presstek’s Chairman, President & CEO. China experienced more than 10% in GDP growth in 2010 along with growth in print volume, and it is unquestionably a large market. The press should resonate well with Chinese printers who want to deliver high quality short run colour printing at an affordable cost and without the need to purchase and maintain a computer-to-plate system.
These presses are also being adopted by digital-only, folding carton, and mailing and fulfillment companies who wish to add offset quality print to their portfolio of offerings without the complexities of conventional offset. For the highest quality personalised printing at the lowest cost, print the shells with the Presstek DI and then overprint using a toner-based or inkjet device. Capabilities are further expanded with the DI’s ability to print on a wide range of substrates from onion skin to heavy card stock, including plastics and magnetic media. Superior quality printing is produced at up to 300 lpi and FM screening-without incurring additional time or expense. Running at 10,000 sheets per hour, the press also has an aqueous coating option that supports both flood and spot aqueous coating.
