NUR Macroprinters Introduces Fresco II and Faster NUR Tempo

Press release from the issuing company

LOD, Israel, March 2 -- NUR Macroprinters, a leading supplier of wide-format inkjet production printing systems, today announced that it will introduce the newest models in its flagship NUR Fresco series of wide-format production presses, the NUR Fresco II, and a faster version of the NUR Tempo wide-format flatbed inkjet press at the upcoming International Sign Expo, (ISE), April 15 - 17 in Orlando, Florida. NUR will be presenting in booth #1058. The new NUR Fresco II series replaces the NUR Fresco HiQ models in NUR Macroprinters' product line-up. With photo-realistic image quality and superior printing speeds, it is expected to become the leading solution for print service providers that need both high quality and high production speeds. Currently in beta testing, NUR Macroprinters plans to begin shipping these machines in April 2004. Older NUR Fresco printers can be upgraded to the NUR Fresco II performance level. The new faster version of the NUR Tempo can now deliver output at up to 882 square feet (82 square meters) per hour in 4-colors and up to 550 square feet (50 square meters) per hour in 8-colors, making the machine faster, more flexible and even more productive than before. NUR Tempo presses in the field can be upgraded to the new, higher performance level. "We believe that the new capabilities make NUR Fresco II the most productive wide-format inkjet press in the market. And a new price point makes the unprecedented productivity of the NUR Fresco line even more affordable than before," said Itay Shalit, Director of Marketing at NUR Macroprinters. Nachum Korman, President of NUR America, Inc. observed, "Since its introduction at SGIA 2003, we've seen tremendous interest in NUR Tempo from both conventional graphics screen printers and digital print service providers. In the short time since the product began shipping, we have sold many units throughout the Americas." He concluded, "We are experiencing heightened demand for product demonstrations for both products as prospects realize that these two new printers will increase productivity and generate significant returns on their investments."
