A.B.Dick Introduces 9980 Single Color Offset Press
Press release from the issuing company
Highly Productive Press Packs New Features, Reliability
CHICAGO, IL - July 1, 2002 -- A.B.Dick Company recently introduced the 9980 offset press. It replaces the Multigraphics 1650 line of one-color presses. Like the Multi 1650, the 9980 offset press features a register board design.
“After the integration of Multigraphics with A.B.Dick Company over two years ago, we recognize the value of the register board to our customers and understand the need to continue supplying such a product,” said Scott MacKenzie, Vice President of Marketing.
In addition to the register board, the 9980 offset press also offers many other features. The second color head has matching operating controls and pin register system to the parent press. The 9980 also provides 17” bleed capabilities, a continuous dampener moisture system, a segmented lever ink fountain control system for both the parent and second color head, and an optional roll-up perforating numbering device. The first orders will be delivered to market in August.
“The 9980 offset press is a great addition to our product line,” continued MacKenzie. “It more than replaces the Multi 1650 with the common second color head, 11” x 17” bleed, and a calibrated lever ink fountain. It has everything our customers are looking for.”
