Press release from the issuing company
Mortsel, Belgium – 25 July 2005 – Agfa and Thieme announced today that an additional five sales contracts have been signed for the M-Press, bringing the total number of sales to seventeen. Twelve companies had made a buying decision before the high-speed flatbed inkjet press was launched at Fespa (Munich, Germany, 31 May 2005). Five more orders were placed during the show and at a two-week open house event, which was organised at Thieme's Technikum in Teningen (Germany) this month for screen and large-format printers from Oceania, North America and Europe.
M-Press was launched as the world's first fully automated flatbed inkjet press that can print long run lengths economically. To do so, it combines Agfa's advanced inkjet technology and Thieme's design and manufacturing expertise in screen printing equipment into one unique solution for high-volume, large-format operations. Prices for the M-Press start at 1.4 million euros.
