InfoPrint doubles speed of its 5000 model

The 5000 continuous forms, full-colour machine can now print at speeds of up to 128m per minute, compared to its previous maximum output at 64m.

The InfoPrint press, which comes from a joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, is designed for transpromo, books on-demand and direct mail applications.

Existing customers of the machine are eligible for a field upgrade to the new model, which will be available in the second quarter of 2009.

The InfoPrint 5000 printers use piezo-electric, drop-on-demand inkjet technology, with water-based pigment or dye inks.

Jim Hamilton, group director of InfoTrends printing and publishing service, said: “Driven by a range of applications, including transaction, transpromo, direct marketing, and publishing, the InfoPrint 5000 is breaking new ground in the high-speed, continuous forms colour world.”
