New Presses Stirs Up Gutenberg Audience
Friday, May 18, 2001
CHICAGO, IL -- The market leader for quick print and small to mid-sized printers has done it again. A.B.Dick has a long and storied tradition in developing dynamic offset presses that address the market needs and concerns of printers. Company officials believe they have the right solution for the growing, short-run color market. The new A.B.Dick QP25 and QP25II one and two-color offset presses will debut at the Gutenberg Show, May 17-19 at the Long Beach Convention Center. "We have established ourselves as a leader in traditional offset equipment, and we are earning a reputation for developing quality offset and digital products," said Scott MacKenzie, Director of Product Planning for A.B.Dick. "The A.B.Dick QP25 and QP25II are prime examples of product development to address our customers needs, blending both disciplines to answer the fast rising demand for short-run, multiple color work. It offers the "Constant Contact Register System", which combines the tremendous advantages of direct feed with an impressive tight register system. Many other outstanding key features help make it the most productive unit of its class in the market today." The A.B.Dick QP25II offset press, with a newly designed second color head, is perfect for fast turnaround work that dominates the quick print and small to mid-size format markets. It delivers high quality performance with four-color process, screens and halftones of images up to 12.6" x 17.3. The A.B.Dick QP25 and QP25II offer many outstanding standard features and benefits. A revolutionary change is evident in the way ink coverage is distributed from the ink fountain. A micro-set fountain set-up is calibrated in order to control ink density in specific coverage areas. The new paper pile supports expand and contract to eliminate the use of different size pile boards. The dual paper guides and quick release side guides give these presses the ability to change stock sizes in seconds. This increases production time while reducing paper waste, therefore saving both time and money. A.B.Dick Company is a leading worldwide supplier to the graphic arts and printing industry, manufacturing and marketing equipment and supplies for all stages of document creation -- prepress, press and post-press -- as well as continuing service and support.
