Ryobi's Growing Line of Mid-Size Presses Enables U.S. Printers to Expand Their Business Profitably and Efficiently
Press release from the issuing company
MIAMI--Jan. 31, 2006-- The business and productivity advantages of Ryobi's high technology mid-size offset press will be demonstrated this week in Miami by one of Florida's largest graphics dealers and xpedx Printing Technologies.
The newly expanded line of RYOBI 750 series presses lets printers efficiently and profitably produce everything from flyers and brochures to high-end posters, books and package printing. It also enables them to tap into high-margin and fast-growing new print markets.
A RYOBI 750 series press, a B-2 multi-color, 23" x 29", six-up offset machine, will be shown at Miami's Graphics of the America's Expo, February 3-5, Booth 1219, hosted by the exclusive Ryobi dealer for South Florida, Spinola Printers Supply, Sunrise, FL.
"Veteran graphics professionals who've seen the output of the RYOBI 750 say it delivers the finest printing available anywhere," says Don Harvey, vice president and general manager of Lenexa, KS-based xpedx Printing Technologies. "Then they learn about everything else this mid-size press offers -- significant production efficiencies, flexibility, as well as the ability to compete successfully in new print markets."
Details on RYOBI 750 Series
The RYOBI 750 series delivers world-class print quality, advanced automation, a digital quality-control system and seamless CIP4 JDF-pre-press compatibility. These capabilities shorten make-ready time and allow for complete control of the print process.
With the 750 series, smaller printers can pursue longer runs and multiple page projects while larger printers can produce quick turnaround projects without tying up their 40-inch presses.
The RYOBI 750 series:
* flexibly handles special colors and varnish coatings;
* has superior productivity through labor-saving automation;
* offers total control of printing quality from prepress to press;
* is compatible with a wide range of paper, from lightweights to card stock and board grades;
* features many innovative mechanisms for high-speed, high-quality printing;
* can have up to 10-colors, an aqueous or UV coating unit, specialized curing and infrared dryers;
* can feature a fully automatic convertible perfecting device for quick change; and
* offers state-of-the-art environmental compliance in press manufacturing and print production.
UV features on the press enable instant drying, offer superior rub resistance and the ability to do chemical embossed printing, which produces a raised image that contrasts with the high-gloss UV coating. It also enables lenticular and MetalFX, a five-color printing process that uses silver as the fifth color.
RYOBI 750 Series Orders Are Strong
Orders for the RYOBI 750 series presses have been strong as commercial and in-plant printers learn how the press reduces production time and costs while producing a wide range of high-quality print pieces. Print customers see the efficiency advantage of printing six-up versus machines that print only four-up. The Ryobi double diameter seven o'clock cylinder design makes it easier to print heavier stocks and packaging while running faster on press--and marking is not a problem with the double cylinder design.
Mid-size Ryobi presses produce higher profit margins for printers due to less waste, automation and as little as 10-minute make-readies. Super-resolution dots are possible with the Ryobi 750 series press, up to 600 line screen jobs on the press. The ability to print heavier stocks and finer screens will allow printers to produce high-end work for ad/marketing agencies and corporate clients.
