Lasermax Roll Systems together for first time at On Demand 2005

Press release from the issuing company

Philadelphia, PA (May 17, 2005) - Lasermax Roll Systems, product of the recent merger between Stralfors Lasermax division and Roll Systems Inc., will showcase the broadest product line in the industry at the On Demand Conference and Exhibition in Philadelphia this week. The company's solutions in digital printer feeding and finishing for both print-on-demand and transaction processing will be on display across the show floor. At the Lasermax Roll Systems booth (#2601) a trio of print-on-demand solutions is being highlighted. First, the LX501 Stack - Lightweight cuts and stacks three-up book blocks. This system can handle paper basis weights as light as 40 gsm. The book blocks are being transported to the CP Bourg booth (#2424) where they are being perfect bound to create finished copies of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book". Also in the Lasermax Roll booth is the MultiUp System with the capability to handle sheets up to 21" x 36" in size, and in basis weights as light as 10# bond (38 gsm). MultiUp outputs 30" high stacks for easy bulk movement to off-line signature folders or other finishing devices. Finally in the booth is the ThreeUp System. It cuts, slits and stacks three-up printing, and also provides slit/merge capability for two-up printing. The ThreeUp is equipped with a number of in-line converting options, including three-hole punch for ring-binding applications, and a strip cut/gutter cut combination to create full bleed sheets from pre-printed forms. "We're excited to exhibit at the On Demand Show for the first time as Lasermax Roll Systems," said Jeff Kewin, Lasermax Roll Systems executive vice president of global marketing and business development. "This is a great opportunity to show the breadth of print-on-demand solutions we now bring to the market. With two product development organizations working together, we anticipate offering even more leading-edge solutions in the future." Elsewhere on the show floor, Lasermax Roll Systems is proud to again take part in the On Demand "Books for Kids" booth (#3801) in partnership with Weyerhaeuser, Océ, Muller Martini, and MBO. An LX502 Signature Fold is helping with the in-line production of books earmarked for Philadelphia public school children. For cut-sheet shops, the newly available DocuSheeter iG is being exhibited in the Xerox booth (#1601) feeding the Xerox iGen3 Digital Production Press. The DocuSheeter iG, jointly developed by Xerox Corporation and Lasermax Roll Systems, feeds up to 60,000 sheets from a single roll for 15 hours or more, significantly reducing paper cost and increasing productivity on the iGen3. For the first time in an industry trade show, the new DocuSheeter VP roll feed system is being exhibited, feeding sheets from rolls and providing similar production efficiencies to an Océ VarioPrint 5000 in the Océ booth (#2101). In the IBM booth (#1412), the LX501 Stack-Pinless Slit Merge is providing feeding and finishing for an IBM Infoprint 4100 HD3/HD4. In the Nipson booth (#2710), the LX501 Stack trims and cuts the web from a Nipson VaryPress 200. Finally, a Roll-to-Roll System provides roll unwinding and rewinding for a Kodak Versamark in the Kodak booth (#2238).
