Presstek to Feature Thermal Plates, Factory Refurbished DI Presses and its Service and Parts Solutions at Print 2013

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Hudson, NH – 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 Print 13, North America’s largest printing trade show scheduled for September 8-12 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Presstek will be located in Booth #4851 at the show. 

Since being acquired by American Industrial Partners nearly a year ago, Presstek has undergone significant restructuring to turn the company around and make it a successful, sustainable, and profitable company. With its new streamlined infrastructure, Presstek’s strategic focus is on developing its core technologies: waterless and chemistry-free thermal plates. Presstek’s recent acquisition of VIM Technologies is key to aiding in the company’s future plate development goals. Presstek is also focused on growing its factory refurbished DI press business, continuing to offer new equipment and the highest standard of service and support for legacy equipment. 

Visitors to the Presstek booth will experience live demonstrations of a factory refurbished 2-page portrait format 34DI digital offset press, showcasing its precision print quality, versatility and fast turnaround. Pre-Owned DI presses are expertly reconditioned at Presstek’s Refurbishment Center, passing comprehensive mechanical and safety inspections and extensive testing that is performed to ensure satisfactory operation in any production setting. Presstek offers both 2-page portrait and landscape format Certified Pre-Owned DI presses, each of which comes with a full year warranty, RIP software and a complete start-up kit.

An in-booth Service Station will display a range of press rollers and other maintenance and repair parts for popular industry brands available for purchase on store.presstek.com. A Technical Service Representative will be on-hand to answer questions about RIP upgrades or service contract options. 

Commercial printers looking for an alternative source for thermal plates are encouraged to visit Presstek while at the show. Featured thermal plate solutions include:

  • Presstek Aeon, a high resolution no preheat positive working plate, offering run lengths to 200,000 or 1,000,000 with a post bake
  • Aurora EXP, a chemistry-free and daylight safe plate offering run lengths to 50,000 impressions 
  • Our newest plate technology, PearlDry Blue, for sheetfed and web press waterless printing, requiring no chemistry processing and rated for 100,000 impressions

PearlDry Blue has seen very positive results in its beta phase and will be commercially available for the US waterless print market in the final quarter of the year.
