Roll Systems Exhibits With Multiple Partners At Drupa 2004

Press release from the issuing company

Burlington, MA (May 5, 2004)-- At DRUPA 2004 opening this week in Düsseldorf, Germany, Roll Systems is extending its broad line of feeding and finishing solutions for high-speed digital printers in new directions, as shown in several locations around the Messe Düsseldorf grounds. Roll unveils the DocuSheeter DT-Large Format (LF) roll feed system in the Xerox stand in DRUPA Hall 13. This is the newest addition to Roll's DocuSheeter line of roll feed systems for high-speed digital cut-sheet printers. The DocuSheeter DT-LF feeds large sheets from a roll to a new model Xerox DocuTech 6180 printer, also modified to handle the large sheet size necessary to print books in a cost-effective 4-up metric format. Also on the Xerox stand, Roll exhibits its Roll-to-Roll System on a Xerox DocuPrint 850 continuous form digital printer. The Roll-to-Roll System features recent enhancements to allow the operator to switch between applications with virtually no adjustments, to provide more consistent rewinding tension for high quality rolls, and to simplify thread-up. Finally with Xerox, Roll's Signature Stacker stacks stitched signatures from a Zechini Millennium Book folding-sewing module. Roll shows a technology demonstration of a color imprinting system in the Hewlett Packard (Hall 4) and inc.jet (Hall 15, stand B14) stands at drupa. Roll combines proven HP ink jet technology with its own many years of paper handling experience to allow users of high-speed digital monochrome printers to add affordable high quality spot color to transactional documents. With this system, users add value to statements and invoices with high impact marketing messages, and reduce costs through the elimination of pre-printed forms. In the HP booth, Roll will be printing invisible-ink bar codes, showing how users may improve the aesthetics of their mailed documents, while freeing up valuable space on the document for other information. "We expect to generate considerable interest and leads at DRUPA, as we exhibit these exciting new technologies and show how our paper handling expertise can enable digital printer users to compete for more business, grow revenue, and make their print operations more efficient," says George McKenna, president of Roll Systems. Finally, in the Spectra stand (Hall 9, stand C26), Roll's Roll-to-Roll System assists in a demonstration of Spectra's piezo electric ink jet technology.
