Presstek Portfolio at Graph Expo

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

First North American showing of next generation plates, Virtuoso and more
 
Presstek, Inc., a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that the company will be exhibiting at Graph Expo 2012, North America's largest printing trade show scheduled for October 7th through 10th at McCormick Place in Chicago. Presstek will be located in Booth #3417 at the show.
 
"We are looking forward to once again bringing a good representation of our portfolio to Graph Expo," said Joe Demharter, Presstek's Vice President of Sales. "This will be the first time that many of the products and technologies will be shown in North America, a terrific opportunity for those who were unable to attend the recent drupa trade show in Düsseldorf."
 
Presstek DI digital offset presses will be the centerpiece of Presstek's presence at Graph Expo. Visitors to the booth will experience the ultra-high quality, automation and small environmental footprint of the 52DI, a 52cm landscape press that images plates on press in precise register going from digital file to printed sheet in 10 minutes. The Presstek 52DI prints 10,000 full size sheets per hour, the equivalent of 333 letter size pages per minute. The booth will also feature a one tower technology demonstration of the breakthrough 75DI press which is available in 4- to 10-color configurations and has the ability to go from digital file to sellable sheet in six minutes. Presstek DI digital offset presses feature waterless printing technology, extreme automation and printing at 300lpi or with stochastic screening. DI certified pre-owned presses are also available from Presstek, and visitors to the booth can learn more about this program. DI certified pre-owned presses offer an affordable way to enter the growing digital offset printing market they include installation by Presstek's service engineers and a new press warranty.
 
"We will also be showcasing Presstek Virtuoso, our innovative inline color management and sheet inspection system for the Presstek 75DI," Demharter added. "In an environment where automation and elimination of error is critical to business success, Virtuoso saves time and money and delivers a more stable print run by performing a complete inspection of each sheet at full press speed." The development of Virtuoso was supported by The BIRD Foundation.
 
Presstek digital thermal plates on display include:

  • PhD 830, a new negative working pre-heat thermal plate.
  • PearlDry Blue, a next-generation waterless thermal printing plate first shown at drupa 2012. PearlDry Blue extends the benefits of previous generations of Presstek's waterless plate technology by offering superior on-press performance and enhanced imaging characteristics.
  • Aeon, a high resolution no preheat thermal CTP plate.

 Presstek will also be featuring its broad array of pressroom consumables and supplies available at shop.presstek.com.
