Friday, April 07, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

MINNEAPOLIS, April 6 -- Delphax Technologies Inc. today announced the sale of a high-speed CR2000 digital roll- fed press to RR Donnelley & Sons Company, the world's premier full-service provider of print and related services. The Delphax equipment is part of a new press-binder configuration introduced by RR Donnelley's Financial Services Business to provide unprecedented digital production benefits to its clients. With continuous running speeds up to 450 feet per minute, the system is approximately twice as fast as the next fastest machine in the financial printing segment and has the full capability of handling low-weight paper stocks. Unlike the normal 40-pound paper standard for book-making machines, this equipment configuration can accommodate paper as light as 27 pounds, with in- line stitching, press pasting and perfect binding. By eliminating traditional offline processes, the equipment can print and bind as many as 1,000 black- and-white books in just three hours, with first books available in less than an hour, said Tom Juhase, President, RR Donnelley's Financial Services Business. "We continue to increase the flexibility of our manufacturing platform to address our clients' needs in an evolving regulatory environment, working closely with industry-leading equipment manufacturers," Juhase said. "This new print/bind configuration gives our clients the best resources for their short lead-time and print-on-demand requirements." The configuration, which combines the Delphax press with in-line binding capability provided by IBIS Integrated Bindery Systems, has been installed in RR Donnelley's downtown Manhattan press room. "The RR Donnelley application exemplifies the speed and productivity made possible by the electron-beam imaging technology used in our Delphax presses," said Jay Herman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delphax Technologies. "It's a technology that not only permits industry-leading digital running speeds at 600 x 600 dots per inch print quality but also accommodates a wide range of substrate materials, from very lightweight paper to heavy card stocks. "We are extremely pleased to have this opportunity to team with RR Donnelley in its innovation to meet client needs." RR Donnelley's Kathleen Shelton, Vice President, Service Delivery, said the one-of-a-kind equipment configuration will provide unparalleled capabilities to the company's Financial Services Business clients and will distinguish RR Donnelley's capabilities by enhancing product delivery cycles, print flexibility and customer support. "It sets a new baseline for digital printing and binding, enhancing our ability to help our clients reduce their costs, achieve their cycle time goals and comply with complex regulations," Shelton said.
