Press release from the issuing company
Aubagne, France - IMPIKA, world leader of industrial inkjet, will take centre stage next month at Ipex Birmingham with the world premiere of the groundbreaking iPress 2400. This press is the first in a series of 'Offset class' inkjet printers whose performance is unequalled in single-pass, colour DOD inkjet technologies, opening a new era for high quality commercial printing.
Strong partnership and full mastering of inkjet technology
In terms of prepress functions the machine is compatible with most software and streams provided by graphic studios. A fibre optic connection bus allows maximum transfer speeds for multiple page, high resolution inputs.
Inks and support materials
The variety of printable surfaces and thicknesses calls for a high quality paper transfer process which combines speed with precision. The machine works with roll-to-roll or roll-to sheet stock using multiple standard formats up to a maximum width of 520mm. A sheet-fed model is under development and will be available by mid-2011. The iPress 2400 is compatible with a number of finishing components. A sample integration using Hunkeler components will be on view at the IMPIKA stand.
It should be noted that the IMPIKA printing solution is the product of a fully integrated design and manufacturing system, conceived and operated by a visionary team of inkjet experts who pride themselves in their customer orientation. In this respect the iPress 2400 is a competitive and cost-effective printing solution which is on a par with the best offset solutions. Given such performance and simplicity of use, the iPress 2400 is in position to become a major player in the market for offset printing of prospectuses, brochures, magazines, catalogues, labels and flexible wrap packaging…
IMPIKA CEO Paul Morgavi explains: "With iPress 2400 we are introducing into the market place a unique product, unmatched in the digital printing world. This new press, at the cutting edge of inkjet technology, will allow printers to produce offset quality printing with all the advantages of digital technology. By eliminating pre-press functions as well as streamlining registry adjustments we are offering printers a range of new opportunities for growth in bespoke services as well as low-cost short and medium print-runs. The iPress 2400 represents for us a first step in our strategy to enter the offset print market. At term the Impika 'Offset Class' will be built around specific opportunities we see in the marketplace."
