About the new xpedx Technology Center
The 11,000-square-foot demonstration and exhibition center is the only location in the U.S. where printers can evaluate, test and purchase equipment and technologies from multiple OEMs in a live production environment.
The center provides U.S. print professionals with access to cutting edge technology and equipment from the world's leading companies in one central location. "The ability to test-run and compare products in a working print production environment is a big plus in helping printers find the best possible equipment for their particular business needs," said Torrey.
"New printing equipment is typically a major investment-and we want to do everything we can to help owners and managers identify solutions that spur growth, efficiency and increased profitability," Torrey added.
The center's printing technology and operations experts can show printers how to create more efficient operations and offer guidance on how investing in technology can help them enter new markets such as high-margin specialty printing, mailing/distribution and fulfillment workflows.
The center showcases pre-press and workflow technologies, offset and digital printing equipment, as well as post-press/bindery equipment and technology. Equipment is from top manufacturers including Ryobi, Kodak, Mitsubishi Imaging, Epson, C.P. Bourg Inc., Morgana, Secap and others. The center features three state-of-the-art Ryobi multicolor presses-a 2-up, five-color RYOBI 525 GX with coater, a 6-up, six-color RYOBI 756 with inline UV casting and foiling, and an 8-up, five-color RYOBI 925 with inline coater. xpedx said it will add new equipment from these and other OEMs throughout the year.
