MGI Digital Graphic Technology (Booth 3619) is debuting its Meteor DP8700 XL digital press to the North American market.
The Meteor DP8700 XL, the latest member of the Meteor family of 4-color multi-substrate digital presses, incorporates such key features as true multi-substrate versatility for paper, plastics and envelopes, laser-safe prints, offset-comparable output and no click charge. New features include a large sheet size (up to 13x40" in production, and up to 13x47" in manual bypass); increased production speed for up to 4,260 A4/letter pages per hour and up to 2,280 A3 pph; and superior output quality at 3600 dpi (8 bit printing) and more than 20 line screen variations ranging from 95 to 270 lpi, in both regular and stochastic modes. Users also have the option to choose up to 2 different line screens within the same print job.
Additional features include a new auto-adjusting offset feeder table, eliminating skew and keeping registration consistent at an industry-leading ±0.2mm (L-R) and new high definition, silicone-free dry toners (CMYK) with a smaller particle size and formulated using renewable and organic components. Each cartridge also has a higher capacity than previous generations of Meteor digital presses and can be changed "on-the-fly" without interrupting production. The Meteor DP8700 XL has a monthly duty cycle of 600,000 A4/letter pages.
