Eco-UVTM to be Introduced at The Print Show, Birmingham, UK, October 13 – 15, 2015 

Hudson, NH USA – Presstek, LLC, leading provider of eco-friendly printing solutions, announces exhibit plans for The Print Show being held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK October 13 – 15, 2015.  The Print Show is a forward looking event designed to highlight the key tools necessary for printers of all sizes to remain competitive. 

Visitors to the Presstek stand (F31) will experience live demonstrations of the Presstek 52DI Eco-UV digital offset press as well as thermal and inkjet chemistry-free Computer-to-Plate systems. Presstek is also excited to give visitors a preview of the all new GemPlate, a chemistry-free develop on press thermal plate.

Being featured in the Presstek stand (#F31):

NEW! Presstek 52DI digital offset press with integrated Eco-UV: 

Presstek will introduce for first time to the UK and global market, a Presstek 52DI with an integrated Eco-UV system. Visitors to the stand will see first-hand the combined benefits of UV printing with the superior quality and ease-of-use of DI digital offset printing. Benefits of the integrated system include faster drying times for overall accelerated production, the ability to print on a full range of substrates including non-porous materials and uncoated stocks, and certain environmental advantages. The Eco-UV system requires only one quarter the power consumption of standard UV systems and produces very little heat. 

Owning a Presstek DI Eco-UV digital offset press positions a commercial print business to address today’s requirements for fast turnaround high value printing on specialty substrates such as packaging, gift cards, labels, point-of-purchase materials and direct mail.

The Presstek 52DI is a 52cm landscape 4-colour press that images media directly on press in precise register going from digital file to printed sheet in under 10 minutes. “Presstek continues to add more value to its DI presses, already a perfect fit for the short-run full colour print market,” said Ian Pollock EAMER Sales Director. “With Presstek DI Eco-UV digital offset presses, customers can print on a wider variety of substrates including PVC, paper and card stock from 0.06mm to 0.5mm, opening up opportunities in areas such as plastic card production, wet glue labels and carton board. Add the fact that the press can print 300lpi and FM screening, the fine detail it can produce is second to none. This new range of print applications combined with our CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) program offering savings up to 50%, we can show customers that their return on investment on Presstek DI presses is more cost effective than they might think.”

NEW! GemPlate – Develop On Press Thermal Plate 

Presstek will introduce the all new GemPlate, an exciting new 100% chemistry-free “develop on press” thermal printing plate. The open platform GemPlate images on industry-standard 830 nm thermal platesetters. Once imaged, GemPlate can be mounted directly on press where fountain solution and ink remove the plate’s unexposed areas, leaving the polymerized, hardened, exposed ink-receptive image areas unaffected. Show attendees are encouraged to speak with a representative for more details about this exciting new plate.

The Vector FL52 is a compact, two-page thermal platemaking system featuring an integrated automatic water wash for Presstek’s chemistry-free Freedom Pro metal plates. Sharp, high quality imaging is achieved with Presstek SureFire FL imaging technology and provides screen rulings up to 175 lpi.
