Press release from the issuing company
Viscom 2005 Exhibition DUSSELDORF, Germany--Sept. 29, 2005-- NUR Macroprinters Ltd., a leading supplier of wide-format inkjet production printing systems for the out-of-home advertising market, previewed today the new NUR Expedio(TM) 3200 wide-format UV-inkjet press at the Viscom 2005 exhibition in hall 6 at Messe Dusseldorf, taking place between September, 29 -- October, 1, 2005.
The new NUR Expedio 3200, capable of output to 3.2 meters wide, joins the 5-metre superwide NUR Expedio 5000 in NUR Macroprinters' product line-up. The NUR Expedio models are the first and currently are the only roll-fed wide-format inkjet presses on the market equipped with UV-curable inks to ensure environmentally friendly operation and media versatility for low operating costs and higher profit margins.
The NUR Expedio 3200 will offer 4 and 8-color printing modes with easy changeover between modes and is designed to be used to print a wide range of products, including indoor signage for close-up viewing, as well as billboards and other wide-format applications, at resolutions up to 720 dpi and at speeds over 120 square meters per hour. A multi-roll printing capability will ensure maximum utilization of the machine's full capacity. Its robust design provides a user-friendly operating approach with simple substrate loading and unloading and easy access to the printing table to enable efficient evaluation of the printed output.
The NUR Expedio 3200 was designed to offer exceptional modularity to customers. In the future, the printhead carriage is intended to accept an additional row of printheads to boost productivity significantly and will also support interfacing with different types of printheads to allow for better quality and/or speed. The NUR Expedio 3200 will also accept external add-ons designed to make it even more productive and versatile, such as an in-line varnish option which will be attractive to companies that produce fleet graphics.
"The expanded NUR Expedio product line, coupled with the NUR Tempo flatbed inkjet press, clearly demonstrates the leadership role NUR has assumed in UV-curable inkjet printing technology," says David Amir, president and CEO of NUR Macroprinters Ltd.
The NUR Expedio 3200 is expected to begin beta testing next month. Commercial availability is planned for the first quarter of 2006
