Presstek Focuses on Digital Offset Innovations at GRAPH EXPO

Presstek DI digital offset presses will be the centerpiece of Presstek’s presence at GRAPH EXPO. Visitors to Booth 3417 will experience the ultra-high quality, automation, and small environmental footprint of the 52DI, a 52cm landscape press that goes from digital file to printed sheet in 10 minutes. The 52DI prints 10,000 sph per hour on a wide range of stocks up to 20 pt. thick. The booth will also feature the breakthrough 75DI press technology. The six-page 75DI is available in 4- to 10-color configurations and goes from digital file to printed sheet in a blazing fast six minutes. The 75DI supports stocks up to 31 pt. thick and prints at 16,000 sheets per hour. Presstek DI digital offset presses feature waterless printing technology, extreme automation, and printing at 300 lpi or with stochastic screening.

Presstek Virtuoso Print Quality System will also be on display. This innovative inline color management and sheet inspection system for the Presstek 75DI digital offset press performs a complete inspection of each sheet at full press speed, saving time and money and delivering a more stable print run. Advanced reporting and data collection supports process improvement and enhanced customer service.

Presstek digital thermal plates on display include:

• PearlDry Blue, a next-generation waterless thermal printing plate first shown at drupa 2012. PearlDry Blue extends the benefits of previous generations of Presstek’s waterless plate technology by offering superior on-press performance and enhanced imaging characteristics.

• Aeon, a high resolution no-preheat thermal CTP plate.

• PhD 830, a new negative working pre-heat thermal plate.
