Shanghai, China (June 17, 2003) – Nipson announces that Yun-Ban Company, a full service printing solutions provider with over 100 employees, has purchased and successfully installed a new Nipson VaryPress digital production printing system integrated with Taiyo offset printer in Lian Yun Gang City, Jiaugsu Province, east China.
Lian Yun Gang was one of the first “open cities” as part of China's economic reform that began in the early 1980’s. Today, it is also the first location of a Nipson Varypress system sold in the People’s Republic of China. The VaryPress was installed by Infomatrix System Company Limited (Shanghai, China), one of Nipson’s worldwide Value Added Distributors.
Yun-Ban Company specializes in forms printing such as taxation invoices and computer forms. The company is using the new system to produce special scratch off invoices for the service industry. Each invoice has a scratch-off area that may reveal a hidden prize for customers. This encourages the use of the invoices and helps streamline China’s tax collection system. Because Nipson presses use a non-heat process to fuse toner, they are ideal for this type of application where variable data are combined with special substrates.
“This first installation of a Nipson digital press in China represents a tremendous opportunity for the market,” says Alvin Lee, CEO of Infomatrix System Company Limited. “There is vigorous competition in this emerging market for digital presses because Chinese customers are increasingly discerning about print quality, productivity, flexibility and profitability. Nipson meets those needs with a great deal of efficiency. That is key to success in such a large market for digital printing."
Nipson presses use a unique cold flash fusing magnetography process to fix toner onto documents. Because this imaging process uses very little heat, a wider range of substrates is possible without stretching.
The Nipson VaryPress prints at 480 dpi at highest speed of 120 m/min (394 ft/min) on paper as light as 40 to 240 gsm (14 lb bond to 140 lb tag), polyester and other plastic material, foils, thermosensitive and carbonless stocks, and self-adhesive labels. The printing width goes up to 457.2mm (18 inches).
“Nipson is very proud to announce the first installation of one of our presses in China”, says Alfons Buts, president of Nipson Digital Printing Systems B.V. “We are looking forward to increasing our relationships with the growing number of Nipson users in Asia. With Infomatrix System Company Limited we have a very active and reliable partner in this rapidly expanding market.”
Infomatrix is already installing a second Varypress in China to a customer that will integrate the digital press with a Beiren Fuji offset press.
“This new installation is an excellent result brought to us by our professional team during such a difficult period.” says Alvin Lee, CEO of Infomatrix System.
