Imprimerie Contact Installs Meteor
Imprimerie Contact of Montreal has purchased and installed a new MGI Meteor DP60 Pro. The machine, purchased from KBR Graphics, will allow Imprimerie Contact to add more flexibility in its offset workflow.
“For the last three years we have been researching and studying different digital presses,” explained André Goyette, President of Imprimerie Contact. “This is our first digital press so we wanted to ensure that we made the best decision. All of the other digital press models were limited to a smaller sheet size but the Meteor is so much larger. Plus quality is very important to our customers and after testing the Meteor we found that it had the highest quality above any of its competitors. In purchasing the Meteor we have both high quality and a larger sheet size.”
Imprimerie Contact has two offset presses used for longer-run jobs: a 5-colour and a 2-colour sheetfed. The new Meteor will take on the short-run work from 10 to 2,000 sheets on a wide range of substrates ranging from plastic to 20# stock. The machine prints at a speed up to 3,900 full-colour sheets per hour.
“We’ve found that the Meteor is up to full-color production in only two to three sheets,” says André Goyette. “That helps to condense our turnaround time, decreases our waste, protects the environment, and saves on paper costs, especially on the more costly types of substrates.”
Imprimerie Contact was founded in 1978 and has a key market in the pharmaceutical industry for the past 20 years.
