Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Weymouth, MA – CMYK Distributors, Inc., is pleased to announce the successful installation of the DJet Double-Sided Printing System by Digital Information at Digital Color Concepts in Mountainside, NJ.  CMYK Distributors is the exclusive distributor of Digital Information’s innovative products and solutions in North America including the DJet Double-Sided Printing System and InkZone ink-presetting and closed-loop technology.  The DJet is a groundbreaking double-sided printing system for the economical production of short runs featuring Epson quality, as well as an ultra-fast inkjet print solution for the output of double-sided imposition proofs.   

Founded nearly three decades ago as a boutique re-toucher, Digital Color Concepts has grown into a full-service commercial printing company with a diverse array of customers representing dozens of industries.  Digital Color Concepts’ business includes equipment to cover every aspect of image production.  They offer services in Pre-Media & Retouching, Digital Photography, Digital/Variable Data, Sheetfed, Network & Communications, Mounting & Laminating, Bindery, Mailhouse/Fulfillment, 10K & Typesetting, CD/DVD Duplicaton/Labeling, and Personal Production Consultation.  Digital Color Concepts is committed to color consistency and guarantees that they will meet their customers’ creative vision from prepress to publication to printed page.  

“The DJet Double-Sided Printing System is a truly unique offering to the proofer market,” said Steve Pandolfi, Founder of Digital Color Concepts.  “It blows away the competition in terms of speed and accuracy.  By adding the DJet to our equipment arsenal, we immediately saw a significant increase in productivity. The system can print up to 40 double-sided 8-up forms per hour, which is incomparable in today’s marketplace.”  

The DJet system is based on Epson’s high-performance, Energy Star rated, SureColor SC-T series printers and can cover both four-up and eight-up formats with paper widths of 23” (580 mm), 35” (890 mm), and 43” (1090 mm).  With five cartridge chambers to facilitate a fast and automatic change between Photo Black and Matte Black, the DJet with SureColor SC-T series printers is efficient and environmentally friendly making it an ideal solution for Digital Color Concepts.  Already employing wind energy and solar panels to obtain 50% of their energy from sustainable resources, using vegetable based inks in their printing facility as an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional inks, and being aggressive about recycling, Digital Color Concepts is an industry leader in environmental sustainability.  The DJet Double-Sided Printing System enhances their ability to be eco-friendly and supports the company’s mission.  

Speaking to the addition of the DJet at their plant, Digital Color Concepts’ Prepress Manager Ralph Catania said, “With the DJet we have been able to achieve greater thru-put; improved quality of double-sided proofs; and faster, more accurate quality and registration—the result of which is reduced waste and reduced cost.” Don Terwilliger, President of Digital Color Concepts, added, “Our investment in the DJet has already proven to be incredibly valuable to our business and we couldn’t be more pleased.” 

With a minimum of mechanical parts, the DJet concept provides maximum production safety and operational simplicity. The two printers, which are engineered in sequence and offset by 180°, allow for the direct output of double-sided print jobs in just a single pass through the system.  The need for operator intervention to feed sheets or turn the media over has been eliminated.  Video cameras are used to monitor production progress utilizing a code printed alongside the sheets. Throughout the print run, the system registers the current position of the printed paper.  This enables high-precision, front-to-back registration on the uncut paper roll. With the DJet, status messages regarding printer readiness, filling level of the ink cartridges, production progress, end of paper roll etc. are reported in real-time.  

The DJet Features:

•    Unrivaled, double-sided print system for the 4-up or 8-up formats

•    Economical, short, print runs in Epson quality

•    Eco-friendly, pigmented, inks with maximum resistance to fading

•    Latest generation SureColor printers with Energy Star rating

•    Low maintenance costs
