Presstek launches first B2 DI offset press at Ipex

Tim Sawyer, Asia Pacific vice president for Presstek, which is distributed in Australia by Cyber and Graffika Links, says, “It is in line with our overall strategy of serving larger printing companies while continuing to bring highly valuable solutions to market that will enable our base of customers to expand their operations. The new Presstek 75DI press will deliver the same level of quality that our Presstek 34 and 52DI customers have come to expect, but in a larger format size and with the ability to add additional print towers with inline coating. Its larger sheet size also means greater productivity and the ability to gang more orders onto a single sheet. Visitors to our stand have been delighted when they see this breakthrough press.”

Presstek says the 75DI digital offset press delivers 300 lpi or stochastic screening; automation (eight-minute job-to-job turnover); and a small environmental footprint, combined with waterless printing technology, chemistry-free imaging on-press, fast run-up for minimal waste, and consistent quality from job to job and within each job.

The 75DI press has a maximum print speed of 16,000 sheets per hour. It has a maximum paper size of 788 x 600mm, a minimum paper size of 279 x 200 mm, and a maximum print area of 760 x 580mm. It prints on stocks from 0.04 to 0.6 mm

Sawyer says, “By 2013, 80 per cent of all sheetfed print jobs will be less than 5,000 runs. The time and cost savings of Presstek DI technology – no plates or film – mean that its users will be able to turn around work more quickly than their competitors, with less waste, and of course to offset quality.”
