Automatic perfecting UV curing options

Presstek has launched automatic perfecting and UV curing options for its flagship 75DI digital offset press and a five-colour 75DI with an inline aqueous coater equipped with the new Virtuoso Print Quality System.

“Adding automatic perfecting and UV printing options to the 75DI press significantly expands the range of applications which can be addressed,” says chairman, president & CEO Stan Freimuth. “Each press will be configured to meet the needs of its buyer and we expect a great deal of interest from larger printers, specialty operations and the packaging industry.”

A perfecting device on the 75DI can be automatically converted between normal printing and perfecting. Up to 10 towers can be included in the perfecting configuration. Perfecting is possible at up to 15,000 sheets per hour, making the 75DI one of the fastest perfecting presses in the industry.

Single-pass perfecting boosts productivity and further reduces cycle time. The 75DI can now be equipped with interdeck UV dryers and a UV coater, allowing high-value-added printing on specialty substrates including film, metalised paper, other non-absorptive media and lenticular printing.

UV printing adds value to printed materials such as surface protection and glossy finishes and shortens drying time for faster finishing and delivery of high quality printed materials.

The 75DI is a highly automated digital offset press available with a full range of productivity enhancing options including an inline aqueous coater. It features support for 300 lpi and FM screening, 6-minute job-to-job turnover (including on-press plate imaging) and a small environmental footprint. The press prints up to 16,000 six-up sheets per hour.
