xpedx has launched a North American campaign to demonstrate the profit, productivity and cost advantages of the RYOBI 920 series 8-up multicolor offset press. The 25x 36" RYOBI 920 delivers the lowest total cost of ownership and the lowest cost-per-printed sheet in 8-up, 16-page full-bleed signature printing. xpedx sells Ryobi presses to commercial and in-plant printers in the U.S. and Canada.
Total lifetime costs—primarily purchase price, labor, utilities, consumables costs as well as maintenance and repair costs—are comparable with most half-size presses in production today and are well below total costs of 8-up 40" models. Ryobi is the only press manufacturer worldwide that makes an 8-up, 36" press in 4-, 5- and 6-color models.
Five- to 10-minute makereadies, world-class print quality, plate changers, CIP4-JDF compatibility, spectrophotometry, a retractable aqueous or UV coater and LED-UV print capabilities and other features make the RYOBI 920 highly competitive with comparably equipped 6- and 8-up offset presses.
The RYOBI 920 is competitive with digital printing on a total production cost per-sheet basis, even at short runs, but also complements digital print platforms.
