Welcome to the Presstek booth at drupa 2012. My name is Stan Freimuth. I am the Chairman, President and CEO of Presstek. And we have a lot of exciting new additions to our product line here at drupa, both in DI digital offset plate line and also to our thermal CTP plate line. And to describe them to you in a little more detail, I’d like to introduce Joe Demharter, our Vice President of Sales for the Americas.
Hello. My name is Joe Demharter, Vice President of Sales of Presstek. And I’m pleased to be able to walk you through our booth here at drupa 2012 to show you some of the new and exciting products that we’re displaying here at the show. First, I’d like to start with our five-color with aqueous coater B2 plus size Presstek 75DI. This is the first time that the Presstek 75DI has been shown in Europe as a commercial product. We are offering many new features on the 75DI here at the show.
First, I’d like to comment though on the capabilities of this press. This press equips an operator, equips a customer with some of the highest quality features available in any press available here at the show in May. What I’d like to say first is that this press is B2 plus format size, which allows you to produce six-up copy on a 23 x 29 inch sheet. The press is capable of being configured anywhere from four colors to ten colors, and can be run either at a perfecting mode or straight.
Here at the show we are offering several new enhancements on the 75DI. First, I’d like to talk about our Virtuoso product which is being launched here at drupa 2012. The Virtuoso is a print-quality system capable of measuring every sheet and calibrating every sheet for color, as well as detecting on any sheets defects that may appear in the printed piece. It also provides running register for customers during the entire press run.
We are also offering for the first time here at drupa the ability to purchase a 75DI with perfecting capability. The press can be configured anywhere from 4-over-4 to 5-over-5, or an unlimited number of perfecting options for our customers. The second feature set, which is a really exciting new addition to our portfolio, is the ability to purchase a 75DI capable of doing variable data. In addition to that, we are offering for the first time complete UV capability on the 75DI.
I’d now like to take you over to our 52DI press to show you that remarkable piece of equipment. We are here at our 52DI demonstration area. The 52DI is a 52-centimeter landscape press capable of going from digital file to printed piece in ten minutes. The 52DI is also available with an aqueous coater. In addition to our positive-working ion plate, as well as our chemistry-free Aurora EXP plate, we are pleased to announce here at drupa two additional two plates.
First, I’d like to introduce to you our PHD plate, which is a negative-working, long-run, thermal CTP plate. PHD is capable of run lengths up to 250,000 without post-baking and can be run well over a million impressions with post-baking. The second product is our newly-introduced, our waterless CTP plate, PearlDry Blue. PearlDry Blue is available with run lengths up to 100,000 impressions.
Thank you for joining us here at drupa. And again, I appreciate the opportunity to talk to you about some of the new and exciting products we’ve introduced here.
