Press release from the issuing company

4/11/07 -- On Demand attendees looking for the high quality of short-run offset printing that’s environmentally friendly should look closely at Direct Imaging (DI) presses, says xpedx. xpedx Printing Technologies is demonstrating a RYOBI 3404E-DI press at the xpedx booth 936 during the On Demand Exposition, Boston Convention Center, April 16-19. “If you want a press that can give you the best advantages of short-run offset and has minimal environmental impact, it pays to consider the value proposition of a DI press,” said Don Harvey, vice president and general manager of xpedx Printing Technologies, Lenexa, KS. “As with any press, you also need exceptionally strong local press support and service.” He said the RYOBI DI press offers the ability to produce 300-line screens with full, rich solids, 10- to 15-minute makereadies and UV drying capabilities. Because production is computer-to-plate, it is environmentally friendly. xpedx Printing Technologies is the exclusive distributor of Ryobi-branded presses in the U.S. The RYOBI 3404 DI series, two-up size portrait format, four-color offset presses are best suited for print runs between 200 and 5,000 impressions. The Ryobi DI presses produce high-quality offset printed pieces, have a digital workflow, are easy to use and can run thin to heavy paper stocks. UV curing units are also available. Harvey also said the Ryobi DI is ideal for in-plant printers who want to upgrade to a four-up or six-up offset printing press in the future.
